A decade ago I had planned to make meatloaf for dinner and realized that no ketchup or tomatoes were available. Fortunately, a jar of salsa was staring at me from the pantry. I will never make another meatloaf without it.

I also use a brownie edge pan for baking. Everyone gets an "end" piece! This has been a huge hit with my friends and family.

Using reduced fat cheese, lean ground beef, and egg substitute or egg whites lowers the fat and calories without sacrificing taste. Try different types of salsas to change the flavor or add heat.
