Recipe Review: Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf

Life has been very busy in our home the last few weeks. I have had this recipe on my menu for almost a month, but have just now gotten around to making it!

I am excited to share this recipe with you. I found it on the Weight Watchers message boards. I knew that my husband would enjoy it, because it has a wing sauce in it. This really is a great recipe if you are tired of classic meatloaf and want to spicy things up, literally.

Just a note, that I this did not turn out as spicy as I thought it would. I am a baby when it comes to spicy things, but this was a nice temperature for me and the flavors were great!

The ingredients. I did not used the blue cheese, because Jon does not like it. However, I think it would have given it an even better flavor!

Mix  together the oats and milk and let them sit for three minutes.

Next, add Frank's wing sauce and stir it all together.

Next, add your ground turkey. Please note that we used lean ground beef, because that's all I had!

Then add your carrots, celery, onion, salt, pepper, and egg whites. Again, I am running out of a lot of stuff in my kitchen, so I used Egg Beaters instead of egg whites.

Then, mix it all together.

The recipe said to put it in a meatloaf pan, but I like putting meatloaf in muffin times. This helps me to control my portion sizes.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

I ate my meatloaf with a Green Giant Just for One Broccoli & Cheese. They were so good!!

Do you think the points were effected by using the ground beef? Because I would rather use ground beef, too.

Thanks,

Kathie - I used the extra lean ground beef and it did not change the pointsplus values.
