This recipe is a "sight for sore eyes," in more ways than one! A traditional long lost comfort food favorite, this lightened version also offers the nutritional benefits of Lycopene (found richly in tomato-based foods), which many researchers believe aids in protecting healthy vision.

Ingredients

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; sautee 3 to 5 minutes or until tender. Combine onion mixture, 2 tablespoons chili sauce, ½ cup cheese and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl.

3. Spoon meat mixture into 4 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Top evenly with remaining cheese. Bake at 350°F for 12 minutes; top with remaining 2 tablespoons chili sauce. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160°F. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note

Don't be tempted to use a higher-fat ground beef. Using the leanest meat available helps ensure the right texture in this meatloaf since the juices don't drain away during cooking.
