Meatloaf with Pumpkin Glaze
1 slice of whole wheat bread
2 tbsp low-fat milk
2 tbsp minced garlic
3/4 c canned unsweetened pumpkin
1/4 c. fresh parsley (If you forget to buy this, I just use a couple tbsp of dried parsley)
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
freshly ground pepper
1 lb ground lean hamburger
1 lb reduced fat sausage
2 tbsp dark brown sugar
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Tear the bread into small pieces and place in a large bowl with the milk. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes, until the bread absorbs the milk.
Add the garlic, 1/2 cup of pumpkin, parsley, egg, oregano, salt, and pepper to taste (I think I used some extra salt), and whisk everything together.
Add the meat, stir with a wooden spoon, then mix thoroughly with your hands. Pat the mixture into a loaf shape and place in a shallow 2 quart foil lined casserole dish.
Whisk remaining 1/4 cup of pumpkin wit the brown sugar and spread on top.
Bake for 1 hour. Let the loaf sit in pan for 10 minutes before slicing.
Then enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!!!
