Cooking Thursday--Mini Salsa Meat Loaves

I know these are nothing special and everyone makes meat loaf, but we are eating better here in our house.  I like these because they are seperate.  Another trick I use is to place the meat loaf into a muffin tin...depending on how you make them you would get 2 "meat muffins" as a serving.

Mini Salsa Meat Loaves

2 large egg whites
1/3 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons chipotle salsa, divided
1/4 cup ketchup, divided
1 pound ground beef, extra lean
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine egg whites in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Stir in oats, 1/2 cup salsa, and 2 tablespoons ketchup. Add beef; mix well. Divide beef mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into an oval-shaped loaf. Coat a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Place loaves on prepared pan.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until done.

Combine remaining 2 tablespoons salsa and remaining 2 tablespoons ketchup in a small bowl; spread mixture evenly over loaves.
