Medifast Friendly Meatloaf Recipe

Total Weight Loss 14.5 pounds.

Yum Meatloaf!  I wanted to make meatloaf for dinner a few nights ago, but I needed to make a recipe that my Husband would also be willing to eat.  He is not on the Medifast diet with me.  I usually make my meatloaf with saltine crackers, but crackers are not on my approved list of Medifast foods.
I pondered different binding ingredients.  I did some web surfing but didn't see any recipes that sounded good to me.  I kept seeing cauliflower used in making dough and rolls.
Then suddenly it came to me.  Cauliflower!  I subbed cauliflower for the saltine crackers in my recipe and Yay! Great tasting, moist meatloaf!  I am guessing that the serving size would be 5oz after cooking, and you are using up some of your condiments and vegetable servings. My husband said he couldn't tell the difference between the regular recipe and this one.

Medifast Friendly Meatloaf

1 Lb. Ground beef , I used 90% lean
1 C. Riced/Ground Cauliflower (I pulsed my cauliflower in the food processor till was finely ground)  Measure out the cauliflower after you ground it.
1 Egg - Beaten or use Egg Beaters
1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 TBL. Parmesan Cheese
1 TBL. Worcestershire Sauce
1 TBL. Onion (chopped)
3 TBL. Low Sugar or Sugar Free Catsup

Mix all ingredients till just incorporated.  Bake in a loaf pan at 375 degrees for 60 minutes.
