Paula Deen Meatloaf Recipe

This Paula Deen Meatloaf Recipe is just one example of why I admire her.

She is one of the few Food Network Stars who makes quick easy dinner recipes that real people with busy lives can make.

I love her casual approach to simple easy home cooking. The problem is that, though tasty, most of her recipes are far from light or healthy.

This is the meatloaf recipe I make most often these days. It comes from her original The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook. I love that it uses oats instead of bread crumbs and has a sweet ketchup based topping.

At 9 PointsPlus per serving, it’s an occasional indulgence. I usually stay within my daily target by a smaller portion (5 – 6 PointsPlus worth) and then loading up with vegetables and salad, which works fine.

The next time I make it, I’m going to replace the egg with a mixture of 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed and 3 tablespoons water, so it will meet Mac’s current dietary requirements.
