Growing up I hated meatloaf night - sorry Mom!  But I was put to the challenge when my husband said he had never had meatloaf (he’s from South Africa and it’s not a staple food there!) and never had seen any that looked good.  Surely if I used clean wholesome ingredients I could come up with a tasty meatloaf that we would both like!  Mission accomplished!  My husband couldn’t believe how delicious this was and my kids ate it up faster than you can imagine!


  • 1 1/2 cups chopped sweet onions
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb ground chicken breast (you can also use ground turkey breast or extra lean ground beef)
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup CLEAN ketchup (see recipe here)
  • 2 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • olive oil spray


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat a small skillet over medium-high heat and lightly mist with olive oil spray.  Add onions and garlic and cook for 5-10 minutes or until onions turn golden brown.

If you want a ‘smoother’ meatloaf make sure to finely chop your onions.  We liked it kind of chunky so I kept the onions fairly large.  Probably our most favorite part of this recipe is that IF there are any leftovers they are SUPER yummy as a sandwich the next day.
