I’m including the “points” listed in the book for convenience but if this is important to you, please confirm directly with Weight Watchers.

When it comes to baking your meatloaf, you have a couple of options. You can bake it the traditional way in a loaf pan or bake it on a foil lined baking sheet. This meatloaf recipe calls for baking it on a sheet but you can do whatever you want.

Depending on how lean your ground beef is, you may find the meatloaf sitting in grease. One way to avoid this is to shape the meat mixture into the shape of a loaf and bake it on a baking sheet. This will allow the grease to run off into the pan.

Our friends over at the USDA recommend an internal temperature of 160°F when cooking meatloaf. This should be enough to kill the salmonella.

You can take the meatloaf out of the oven around 150-155°F and let it rest for 10 minutes. Check the internal temperature again before slicing & serving.

If you don’t have a red bell pepper on hand you can substitute for a green, yellow or orange bell pepper. Instead of the dijon mustard, you can use some spicy brown mustard.
