0 Yummy Meatloaf...

I know a lot of people don't like meatloaf and I used to be one of them but a friend turned me on to this unique recipe. Try it, you'll be surprised how good it is. This delicious recipe comes from Ann Gittleman's book “The Fat Flush Plan”, it's very tasty and it a good way to incorporate spinach into a meal that kids (and adults) that don't like spinach won't notice!

This recipe makes one serving, so what I like to do is quadruple it – then you can either have a dinner party or freeze for leftovers. I use a baking pan that has 4 mini-loaf pans in it, so that each one comes out the same size.

Yummy Meatloaf
¼ lb ground meat
¼ c spinach, chopped
¼ c onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 Tbl tomato sauce

Preheat oven to 400. Place the meat, spinach, onion, garlic, cayenne and parsley in the bowl of a food processor and blend (I just put it all into a bowl and mix well with my hands). Press into a mini loaf pan and glaze the top with the tomato sauce. Bake for approximately 30 minutes. Serves 1

I just found a website that analyzes recipes and give nutritional data.  Now I'll start using it for all my recipe and comparison articles, I'll give information for calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbs, protein, vitamin A & C, calcium and iron. When I get time I'll go back and analyze some of the previous articles, when there's a comparison I'll give you nutritional data for home made vs. prepared as well.
