Mom's Meat Loaf

Directions

  1. Lightly coat a small skillet with cooking spray or cooking oil. Add the green onion, sweet pepper, and carrot. Cook over medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  2. Combine egg whites, crushed crackers, milk, the 2 tablespoons chili sauce, basil or oregano, and black pepper in a large mixing bowl. Add the cooked vegetables and ground beef; mix well.
  3. Pat meat mixture firmly into a 7-1/2 x 3-1/2x2-inch loaf pan. Invert pan with meat mixture into a shallow baking pan; remove loaf pan. Bake meat loaf in a 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, for glaze, stir together the 1/4 cup chili sauce, brown sugar, and vinegar in a small mixing bowl. Spoon glaze over meat loaf. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes more or until no pink remains and an instant read thermometer registers 160 degree F. Transfer meat loaf to a platter. To serve, cut into slices. Makes 6 servings.
