WW Recipe of the Day: Paula Deen’s Meatloaf
(324 calories | *7 WW Freestyle SmartPoints)
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 and Sons Savannah Country Cookbook . I love that it uses oats instead of bread crumbs and has a sweet ketchup based topping.
The Skinny on Paula Deen’s Recipe for Meatloaf
At *7 WW SmartPoints (*8 PointsPlus – old program) per serving, it’s an occasional indulgence. I usually stay within my daily points target by enjoying a smaller portion (5 – 6 Points 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 dairy-free dietary requirements.
