Here's a lower-in-fat-and-salt take on my mother's original recipe. I substituted fresh ingredients like garlic, mushrooms and onions for dried onion soup mix and garlic powder, etc. It's still dense, hearty and tastes like home. —Brenda Moehringer, Gansevoort, New York

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon steak sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 5 medium fresh mushrooms, finely chopped

  • 1/3 cup finely chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • Barbecue sauce, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 11 ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into a loaf; place in an 11x7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray.
