Ingredients

2 tsp
extra virgin olive oil
1 large
onion chopped
3
garlic cloves minced
1 1/2 lb
lean ground beef
1 c
tomato sauce
1/2 c
plain dried bread crumbs
2
egg whites lightly beaten
1/2 lb
fresh mushrooms chopped (optional)
1 tsp
dried bail
1 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
freshly ground pepper
ketchup optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray
2
Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add onion, garlic, sugar, cook stirring occasionally until golden about 10 minutes.
3
Transfer to a large bowl. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil in same skillet. Add mushrooms and cook stirring occasionally until browned about 6-7 minutes. Add to the bowl with the onion allow to cool 5 minutes.
4
Stir in the beef, 1/2 cup of the tomato sauce, bread crumbs, egg whites, basil, salt, pepper. until well combined. I like to use my hands to mix it thoroughly.
5
Transfer mixture to the baking sheet and form into a 4x9 inch loaf. Spread the remaining 1/2 cup of tomato sauce over the top. You could use brown gravy instead of the tomato sauce if desired. Bake for 45-55 minutes.
6
Cut into slices. Tip: If you like a crispier textured loaf, cut slices, and place laying flat on baking sheet. place slices in broiler for about 5 minutes on each side.
