Instead of traditional breadcrumbs, we use ground flaxseeds as the binder for this easy meatloaf. The flavors are kept straightforward—just onion, a little garlic, ketchup, and a little nutty hit from the flaxseed. Feel free to toss in some chopped parsley, oregano, or basil for more depth. We call for organic ketchup because it is usually sweetened with sugar, not high fructose corn syrup; some organic brands are also lower in sodium than standard ketchup.
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Combine onion, ground flaxseed, salt, pepper, ground sirloin, grated garlic, and egg in a large bowl. Shape into an 8- x 4-inch loaf on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Spread ketchup over loaf. Bake at 375°F for 40 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160°F. Cut meatloaf into 8 slices.
