This recipe is actually healthful if you are using lean ground beef and lowfat cheese! A staple in our house...my husband will eat no other meatloaf.

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 egg
1 T Worcestershire sauce
pinch salt
8 oz. tomato sauce, divided
1 to 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups lowfat sharp cheddar cheese

Whisk egg together with W sauce, salt, and 1/2 cup tomato sauce. Mix beef in. Stir in oats (enough to make it not sticky).

On a piece of aluminum foil, press out the meat mixture to about 8x10 inches (or as big as you can get it without making holes). Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese to 1/2 an inch from edges. Roll up into a log lengthwise and transfer to a loaf pan coated with cooking spray.

Cook at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. Pour remaining tomato sauce on top and cook another 15 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and let rest 10 minutes or until cheese is melted well.

Makes 6-8 slices.

I don't have a way to calculate nutrition info, but it's 4 1/2 WW points for 1/8 of the recipe, so I would guess around 200 calories and 6 g fat.

I have a pound of buffalo meat I need to use up...I think I'll use it in this recipe. Thanks!

DELICIOUS!!! This is definitely a keeper! I had to make my own tomato sauce so I just blended a can of dice tomatoes, a slice of red onion, and 3 mushrooms. I admit it was kinda hard to roll up w/o it falling apart...but man oh man! Is it awesome!
