I have had meatloaf for weeks! Don't get me wrong, I love meatloaf...but there is only so much a person can take! Below are two recipes that are different from each other but both good in their own way. To make my meatloaf a little healthier I try to use grass-fed beef and spelt breadcrumbs. Speaking of bread crumbs, did you know that a coffee grinder works great to make bread crumbs out of any bread? Give it a try :)

• 2 lbs Hamburger
• 1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix
• ¾ cup bread crumbs
• 2 eggs
• ⅓ cup Ketchup
• ¾ cup milk
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom of 9x13in pan. Mix all ingredients together. Shape into a loaf and put in 9x13in pan. Can top with barbecue sauce. Bake at 350°F for 1 hour.

Li’l Cheddar Meat Loaves

• 1 egg
• ¾ cup milk
• 1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
• ½ cup quick-cooking oats
• ½ cup chopped onion
• 1 tsp. salt
• 1 lb ground beef
• 2/3 cup ketchup
• ½ cup packed brown sugar
• 1 tsp. mustard
In a bowl, beat the egg and milk. Stir in cheese, oats, onion and salt. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight loaves; place in a greased 13x9x2in baking dish. Combine ketchup, brown sugar and mustard; spoon over loaves. Bake uncovered, at 350°F for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160°.
