Jerk Meat Loaf

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 slice)
For a fiery version of this meat loaf, substitute two Scotch Bonnet peppers for the jalapeño peppers. We opted to use a low-carb ketchup in this recipe because there is carbohydrate coming from the breadcrumbs.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground round
  • 1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup low-carb or reduced-calorie ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • Cooking spray
