Healthy But Yummy Meatloaf

I really love meatloaf and this is a little healthier version. The bacon adds a great flavor. This is great the next day for sandwiches, top it with some of the tomato sauce and cheddar cheese and microwave or broil.xo

2 T Real Bacon Bits
2 15 ounce Cans Tomato Sauce
3 Garlic Cloves, Minced & Divided
1/2 C Zucchini, Shredded
1/3 C Oats, Uncooked
1 Onion Chopped, Divided
1/4 C Italian Parsley, Chopped
1 Egg
1 T Water
1/2 t Thyme
3/4 t Salt
1/2 t Pepper
1/4 t Cayenne Pepper
1 Lb Ground Beef
1/2 Lb Ground Turkey

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl beat the egg & water together. Then add 1 T bacon bits, 2 T tomato sauce, zucchini, oats, 3/4 C onion, 2 T parsley, 2 t garlic, thyme, cayenne, salt & pepper, stir well. Add meats and mix well. Shape into a loaf and set in a baking pan sprayed with Pam.
In that same bowl add remaining tomato sauce, bacon, onion, garlic & parsley mix well to combine and pour over meatloaf. Bake for 35-45 minutes until done through.
Serve with mashed potatoes and a salad.
