Total time: 1 1/2 hours | Serves 4 to 6
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup minced celery
  • 1/4 cup minced green bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/2 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard

Step 1Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2Beat the egg lightly in a large bowl. Crumble the beef and add to the bowl, along with the cottage cheese, onion, cracker crumbs, celery, green pepper, sesame seeds, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt, basil and pepper. Toss lightly with your hands to mix; do not overmix. Shape the loaf and place in a (9x5-inch) loaf pan.

Step 3Combine the ketchup, brown sugar and mustard. Spread over the loaf.

Step 4Bake the meatloaf until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees on a meat thermometer and the loaf pulls away from the sides of the pan, about 1 hour. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
