Using wheat germ in place of bread crumbs results in a tender meat loaf that’s both flavorful and nutritious.
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1/2 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ
- 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, divided
- 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Heat oven to 350° F.
Combine beef, wheat germ, 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, onions, egg and seasonings in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape meat mixture into four individual loaves, arranged in a 9-inch square baking pan.
Bake 30 minutes or until center is no longer pink (160° F). Spoon remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce over tops of meat loaves.
