It's in the beans. Yup, the secret to making this so good for us is in extending the pork by adding a can of beans. They're full of protein and fiber, and they offer us a refreshing change from all-meat meat loaf.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 (14 ½ ounce) can stewed tomatoes, drained
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (16 to 19 ounce) can great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the beans and ketchup; mix well. Gently stir in beans, being careful not to break them up.
  3. Place meat mixture into prepared loaf pan. Spoon ketchup over loaf and spread evenly over top. Bake 60 to 65 minutes, or until loaf is cooked through and juices run clear.

can I use whole egg

This had a good taste and was easy to make. I forgot to add the beans at the very end, I mixed them in with everything else, and it turned out fine, the beans did not get mushy at all. I like the beans addition and the stewed tomatoes addition. But I could not get this to hold together when serving. I waited a good 15 minutes to cut into it after taking it out of the oven, and it fell apart. Might make again, as the taste was good, but I probably would not serve this for company, as it does not hold together at all. Might be too much bread crumbs, not sure. But thank you for the idea of adding beans and/or stewed tomatoes to a meatloaf mixture, that is a great idea!!

Any suggestions for a substitute for the beans(allergic) thank you!

Hi there! You can substitute the beans for frozen and thawed chopped spinach. Enjoy!

If you wish to replace the beans with another protein, try ground sausage or additional ground beef (1 pound). I've been making meat loaf for many years, and you can substitute just about anything. I use Worcestershire sauce in mine, too.

I only eliminated the ketchup! I sauteed some mushrooms and spinach for a side!

totally loved it as did I and will be making it more often. made as stated other then I did not have stewed tomatoes so used tomato sauce

What a wonderful idea. Thanks. I will certainly make it because it is a more healthy type of Meat Loaf.

Would this work well with ground turkey or lean ground beef also?

Sure, feel free to substitute either ground turkey or ground beef. Enjoy!

Would you please add the nutritional values? I am a new chronic kidney patient and this would be so helpful? Thank you!
