  • 1

  • ½

    cup finely chopped carrot

  • 1

    teaspoon dried oregano

  • 2

    garlic cloves, minced

  • 1

    cup ketchup, divided

  • pounds ground beef, extra lean (raw)

  • 1

    cup bread crumbs

  • 2

    tablespoons prepared mustard

  • 1

    teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • ¼

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 2

    large eggs

  • Cooking spray

  • Mashed Potatoes

  • 4

    cups cubed peeled Yukon gold potato (about 2 pounds)

  • ¼

    cup 2% reduced-fat milk

  • ¼

    cup low-fat sour cream

  • 3

    tablespoons butter

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • ¼

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Garnish

  • 3

    tablespoons chopped chives

  • 4

    pieces of bacon cooked and them chopped

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion, chopped carrot, dried oregano, and minced garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Cool. Combine onion mixture, 1/2 cup ketchup, and the remaining ingredients except cooking spray in a large bowl. Spoon the meat mixture into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Top each with 2 teaspoons ketchup. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160°. Let stand for 5 minutes. While the meatloaf is cooking, make the mashed potatoes. Place potato in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until tender. Drain. Put potatoes into a ricer for best results. Return potato to pan. Add milk and remaining ingredients; stir with a spoon to desired consistency. If they are not creamy enough for you, add up to 1/4 cup more milk – although they need to be stiff enough to pipe on top. Put the potatoes into a pastry bag with a wide star tip and pipe the mashed potatoes on top of the meatloaf. Sprinkle with bacon crumbles and chopped chives.
