Meat Loaf

I got this recipe from a friend in Arkansas before I went on the low sodium diet and it became an instant family favorite. The only changes I made were eliminating the salt in the meat mixture and using no salt added tomato sauce. It's a simple loaf with only a few ingredients, which my kids seemed to appreciate. The sauce is the real star here, a sweet and sour barbecuey marvel that is worlds away from plain tomato sauce or, heaven forbid, tomato soup. It gives the whole house a wonderful aroma while it cooks. I always make at least a double recipe ... this is the kind of thing that makes you forget the 3 ounce portion thing pretty quickly, and it makes great sandwiches. You can also use ground turkey and make a lower fat version.

1 1/2 lb Ground Beef
1 c Breadcrumbs,Low Sodium
1 Onion,Finely Chopped
1/4 c Egg Substitute
1/4 t Black Pepper
1/2 c Water
8 oz No Salt Added Tomato Sauce
2 t Worcestershire
3 T Vinegar
2 T Mustard
3 T Brown Sugar

Mix together meat, breadcrumbs, onion, egg and pepper and 1/2 the tomato sauce...form into one large loaf or two small ones; mix all other ingredients together; pour over loaves....bake at 350 for 1-1/2 hrs
