  • 4 slices whole wheat bread, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Soak bread in milk for 5 minutes. Drain and discard milk. Stir in next 9 ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix lightly but thoroughly.
  2. Shape into a loaf in a15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Spread top with ketchup. Bake at 350° until a thermometer inserted in the center reads 160°, 45-55 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
    Freeze option: Omitting ketchup, bake as directed. Securely wrap cooled meat loaf in foil, then freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Unwrap and spread top with ketchup. Reheat on a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan in a preheated 350° oven until a thermometer inserted in center reads 160°. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
