Tonight’s recipe, “Buffalo Chicken Blue Cheese Meat Loaf” was a hit! Talk about tasting like the real deal when it comes to wings, this is it! Ted and I both enjoyed and there is just enough sauce and blue cheese to make it feel like a high calorie meal. Surprisingly, one fourth of the loaf or two slices if you make it in to eight slices was just 263 calories! Yum! This is the third recipe from the “Biggest Loser Family Cookbook”
Makes 4 Servings
Olive Oil Spray
2/3 cup old-fashioned oats (I used Gluten Free)
1/2 cup low fat milk
2 1/2 Tlbs. Buffalo wing sauce (I used Gluten Free, low sodium)
1lb. extra lean ground chicken breast
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion
2 Large egg whites, lightly beaten
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
Preheat oven to 350, lightly mist a 9×5 loaf pan with olive oil spray.
Combine the oats and milk in a medium mixing bowl and stir to mix. Let stand for 3 minutes, or until the oats begin to soften. Stir in the wing sauce until well mixed. Add chicken, celery, carrot, onion, egg whites and salt. With a fork and clean hands, mix the ingredients well. Add the blue cheese and gently mix to combine.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and spread so the top is flat. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked and no longer pink. Cut into 8 slices and each serving is 2 slices.
