1 Lb. Lean Hamburger
½ cup or more finely chopped onion
½ pkg. saltines, finely crushed
¼ cup diced green or red pepper
1, 4-oz can tomato sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients. Form into loaf. Bake at 350° about 1 hour.
Here is how it looks formed and ready to bake!
Here is the finished meatloaf! Feel free to add your own variations! I like to use fire-roasted tomato sauce, or Italian breadcrumbs instead of Saltines - the possiblities are endless!
And here is a perfect meal! For all of you who are following along with Sharon over at Red Geranium Cottage on the Diet Challenge 2009, this is an excellent, filling, low-fat meal - meatloaf, steamed veggies with lemon and baked red potatoes!
