Blue Ribbon Meatloaf

In revisiting this classic, we put the meat back in the “loaf” by using ultra-lean ground beef and turkey. With fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs and beer-simmered sweet onions, you’ll never notice the missing fat.

Directions

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped (2 cups)
  • 1 12-ounce b dark or amber beer
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/4 pounds 95%-lean ground beef
  • 1 1/4 pounds 93%-lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs, (see Tip)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten

Cooking Instruction

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until translucent and starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Pour in beer and increase heat to high. Bring to a vigorous boil; cook until the liquid is quite syrupy and the mixture reduces to about 3/4 cup, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in thyme, dry mustard, salt and pepper. Let cool for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Add beef, turkey, breadcrumbs, parsley, egg and egg white to the onion mixture. With clean hands, mix thoroughly and transfer to the prepared pan.

Step 4

Bake the meatloaf until an instant-read thermometer registers 160°F when inserted into the center, about 1 hour 20 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes; drain accumulated liquid from the pan and slice.
