  • 1-1/2 pounds ground round
  • 3/4 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/4 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese


  1. In a large bowl, lightly combine meat loaf ingredients. On a waxed paper, pat into a 14x10-in. rectangle.
  2. In a small bowl, combine filling ingredients. Spread over rectangle, leaving 3/4 in. around edges. Starting with a short end, roll up jelly-roll fashion. Press meat mixture over filling at both ends to seal. Place loaf, seam side down, on a rack in a roasting pan.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour. Spread with ketchup; bake for 15 minutes longer. Sprinkle with cheese; let stand a few minutes. Cut into 1-in. thick slices.
