Yesterday a dear friend who had undergone extensive plastic surgery came to lunch with her husband. Hubby likes meat loaf, and my friend wants to lose about ten pounds. Since her surgery two weeks ago, which included lipo around her waist and back, she tells me she has gained weight. So I made this low cal Meat Loaf Pizza Style, serving it with a tossed salad and homemade bread sticks (for those who want them). Not I, darlings, since the meat loaf and salad are 300 calories. I baked the mixture in two aluminum loaf pans, freezing one.
Ingredients for 8 servings:
1 cup white bread crumbs
1 cup skim milk
2 pounds ground chicken breast, skinless
Two egg whites, whipped
1/2 cup each– mushrooms and onions, chopped
1/2 cup bell peppers, chopped
1/2 cup each low cal mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, grated
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon pizza seasoning
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup pizza sauce
Soak top and bottom of a clay pot in water for at least 15 minutes. In a mixing bowl, combine bread crumbs, milk, chicken, egg whites, onions, bell peppers, Parmesan cheese, salt, oregano, pizza seasoning, and black pepper. Press in pot.
Cover and place in cold oven. Set temperature to 400-degrees. Bake for one hour.
Spread sauce on top. Then, top with mozzerella cheese and mushrooms. Cover, return to oven and bake ten minutes more.
