Lo-Salt Healthy Recipe – Meatloaf

meatloafEverybody loves a good slider sandwich but cooking a burger takes time and attention.  Preparedness makes all the difference, this can be prepped ahead and then sliced when cool, seared in a sauté pan.  A little butter (not healthy) and a little crisp edge will give this a great texture, almost carnitas style.   Can be prepped one day ahead of time and served to perfection.  Take it to the next level and sear it animal style with ketchup and mustard before serving on a toasted challah or brioche bun.  Make good choices.
