Low Fat Meatloaf

From the number of recipes I’ve already published my avid reader will be aware I really like meatloaf. It is economical and tasty. It is good hot or cold. in my opinion, better cold.

It keeps well in the refrigerator and can be frozen. Yesterday I attempted a new low fat version which does not have the great sausage meat mouth sensation of a fattier product, but is flavoursome and satisfying with an energy value I calculate at about 780 kJ per hundred grams. It is also much nicer than the vegetarian meatloaf I tried a while ago. We won’t mention that again.

I was able to make this low fat version because Aldi sells “Premium” minced beef with less than 3% fat, and similar minced chicken. I bought a new silicone loaf tin just so I could make meatloaf in my turbo oven.

This meatloaf has a glaze of tomato sauce, cider vinegar and brown sugar.

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
