Look What I Did with the Crunchy Green Bean Chips

It's meatloaf night at the DeeLee house!  BUT, I got home and realized I didn't have any bread crumbs!  Sooooo...I took the Crunchy Green Bean snack I told you about earlier and crushed them up.  They worked perfectly as a replacement for bread crumbs, and I know it's all healthy too! 



Then, I realized I didn't have any tomato paste.  So, I went searching through the fridge and found homemade apple butter!  Perfect!  It will act as a thickening agent!  



DeeLee's Meatloaf Recipe
 
1 lb. extra lean ground beef 
1/4 onion
4 cloves garlic
1 apple 
1 handful fresh parsley 
1 egg
2 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
4 tbs. beef stock
1 tbs. homemade apple butter 
1 tbs. thyme 
1 cup ground Crunchy Green Bean snack (replacement for bread crumbs)
salt and pepper

Saute onion, apple, and garlic until tender.  Add thyme, worcestershire, beef stock and let reduce for 1 minute.  Then, add homemade apple butter.  

Add sauted mixture to large bowl with ground beef, egg, ground green beans, fresh parsley, salt and pepper.  Combine all ingredients, then form into a loaf on a large baking sheet. 

Bake 350 and hour.  In the last 15 minutes, add topping.  Recipe below: 

Meatloaf topping: 

2 tbs. ketchup
1/2 tbs. sirachi (I like it HOT! You can skip and just add more ketchup.) 
1 tbs. honey
couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce
