Ingredients and Measurements

8 ounces lean ground pork
8 ounces lean ground turkey
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
4 tablespoons salt free ketchup
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1 teaspoon reduced sodium soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano
2 large egg whites
1 medium red onion, grated (about 1/3 cup)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

Combine the pork and turkey by hand in a large bowl. Stir together the oats, 2 tablespoons of the salt free ketchup, 1/2 tablespoon of the mustard, the reduced sodium soy sauce, oregano, egg whites, onions, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl until combined. Add the oat mixture to the meat mixture and combine by hand.

Form the meatloaf mixture into 4 small football-shaped loaves, about 4 inches long and 1 1/2 inches thick, and place on the prepared pan. Stir together the remaining 2 tablespoons ketchup and 1/2 tablespoon mustard in a small bowl. Brush some of the ketchup mixture on each meatloaf.

Bake until fully cooked, about 20 minutes.
