Healthy Grilled BBQ Meatloaf Foil Pack

What makes this low-fat meatloaf speedier than the typical oven version? The reflective surface of the foil packet, which traps and intensifies[ the heat like a mini silver oven. Plus the loaf is slightly thinner, so it cooks more quickly while maintaining a flavorful char on the surface.]

NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup 2-percent milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons whole-wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 2 scallions, trimmed
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 12 ounces lean ground beef
  • 8 ounces 99-percent fat-free ground turkey
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Nonstick cooking spray
Directions
  • Special equipment: heavy-duty foil

  • Prepare a grill for medium-high heat.

  • Stir together the milk, egg, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce and 1 tablespoon of the barbecue sauce in a medium bowl.

  • Finely chop the spinach, scallion and garlic together on a cutting board. Transfer to the bowl, along with the ground beef and turkey, 1 teaspoon salt and several grinds of black pepper. Gently combine the mixture well with your hands.

  • Coat a 20-inch piece of heavy duty aluminum foil all over with cooking spray. Pile the meatloaf mixture onto the foil just off the center and form into a 9-by-5-inch loaf that's about 1-inch thick. Fold the long half of the foil over the meatloaf, lining up the edges, and crimp and fold tightly to make a sealed packet.

  • Put the packet on the grill, close the grill lid and cook for 10 minutes. Turn the packet over using 2 large metal spatulas; cover and grill 10 minutes more. Remove and let rest for 5 minutes. Carefully open the packet (hot steam will escape). The meatloaf should have some grill marks and an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Brush the top and sides of the loaf with the remaining 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce. Cut into slices and serve.
