Grilled Barbecue Meat Loaf

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:

  1. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Stir together the milk, egg, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce and 1 tablespoon of the barbecue sauce in a medium bowl.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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. The meatloaf should have some grill marks and an internal temperature of 165-170 degrees F. Brush the top and sides of the loaf with the remaining 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce. Cut into slices and serve.
  6. Makes 4 servings
