Try a little yumminess!

Don't forget (if you're in the US or Canada) to hop on over to my other blog and enter my giveaway! You could win a brand new Hamilton Beach Food Processor OR some gorgeous Le Creuset casserole dishes!!


As I was making dinner last night, I decided to use my fancy schmansy Weight Watchers scales to measure out everything and, in the process, work out how many points it all came to.

I was making one of my most favourite meals and I thought that if it worked out well, I could share it with all of you. Turns out, it came to far less points than I thought it would!

This is my mom's meatloaf recipe. I usually serve it with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies but it's also great with a salad. I hope you'll try it sometime. It's much meatier than the meatloafs I've had before (mostly in the UK and chock full of breadcrumbs. Blech!) and the glaze on top of it is delish! I totally forgot to take a picture. Sorry!

Yummy Scrummy Meatloaf


500 grams (approx 1.5 lbs) LEAN minced beef/pork/lamb
2/3 cup oats
2/3 cup SKIM milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
2 eggs
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1 small onion - finely chopped

Mix together and pat into a loaf pan.


1/4 cup ketchup (tomato sauce)
1 teaspoon mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix together and pour over meatloaf, spreading as evenly as possible.

Bake your meatloaf at 350F (175C) for approximately 70 - 75 minutes. Cuts nicely into 5 slices.

For those of you on Weight Watchers, this works out to 4 points per slice. They're good size slices though!


And now, I'm off to another Zumba class. I'm hoping to not look quite so much like a salad vegetable after this session but I won't be holding my breath. I might even take a picture of myself after, just for your amusement!


  1. oooh and I had just commented to the husband last night that I wanna try making minimeatloaf muffins.
    I wonder if that would work for a recipe....


  2. Miz....the whole recipe comes to 20 points, so just divide that by however many muffins you make. Of course, if you aren't counting points, then that won't matter. But yes, it would work fine for the little muffins!

  3. mmm I love meatloaf! I have never added oats to it but I can see how filling & healthy it would be! YUM!

  4. sara makes the WW greek meatballs with eggplant in them, and they're amazing... and before that The Kid was off meatballs. i think it's time we get him to try meatloaf!
    and i especially love leftovers...
    one trick for oatmeal is to run it through a food processor to chop it up a little... also, finely chopped zucchini is lovely also!
