Healthy Meatloaf

My meatloaf is actually my kids' favorite meal.  I try to make it healthier by using oats instead of bread crumbs, and I think it really adds to the flavor.  My secret ingredient though?  Buttermilk.  It makes the mealoaf extra rich and moist!


1.5 lbs 85% Ground Beef
2 Eggs, beaten
3/4 C. Buttermilk (full fat)
2/3 C. Old Fashioned Oats
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Onion Powder
1/4 Cup Ketchup
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar


1.  Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, buttermilk, oats, Italian seasoning, salt, garlic and onion powder.  Once well mixed, add in the ground beef, and using your hands, combine it all together.

2.  Pat mixture into a greased loaf pan.  Bake for one hour or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.  Spoon out any grease.  In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, sugar, and vinegar, and then spread the mixture on top of the meatloaf.  Bake for 10-15 additional minutes, until topping deepens in color some. 

3.  Let rest for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.  8 servings.  Eat immediately or freeze.
