WW MEATLOAF RECIPE FOR FREESTYLE
I love recipes that are delicious and contain simple substitutions. This WW meatloaf recipe is simple and very similar to traditional meatloaf.
Ground turkey is substituted for ground beef and it saves a LOT of points. There are extra veggies in the meatloaf. The veggies bring flavor to the recipe and also help keep it moist.
I used sugar-free ketchup to help keep the points lower and the sugar content lower. This is optional, but be sure to count the points if you change to regular ketchup.
This Weight Watchers Meatloaf is ZERO Freestyle SmartPoints per slice!!

HOW TO MAKE WW MEATLOAF
This meatloaf mixture can be made up the day before and refrigerated until you are ready to bake it!
STEP ONE: PREPARE VEGGIES & OVEN
The first step is to finely dice the carrots, celery, onion and garlic. I like mine to be diced VERY FINELY so that the meatloaf is not chunky.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
STEP TWO: COOK VEGGIES
Take a small saute pan and place on the stove over medium heat. Spray the pan with the nonstick cooking spray and add the diced carrots, celery, onion and garlic. Lightly salt and pepper the vegetables in the pan.
Saute the veggies for about 5 minutes or until the veggies are soft. Set aside and allow to cool.
STEP THREE: MAKE MEATLOAF MIXTURE
In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, basil, oregano, cooled veggies, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons ketchup, egg and salt and pepper to taste.
Mix these ingredients well by hand or using a stand mixer with the dough hook.
STEP FOUR: MAKE LOAF
It is time to line a baking dish with parchment paper.
Place the meatloaf mixture on the parchment paper and use your hands to form a loaf shape.
Put the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar-free ketchup on top of the loaf and spread to cover the top.
STEP FIVE: BAKE
Bake the meatloaf for about 60 minutes or until cooked through.
Allow it to cool for about 10 minutes before slicing.
Be sure to refrigerate any leftovers.
