Apple Meat Loaf

Nice little change on your average, ordinary meat loaf--the apple sweetens things up and provides moisture too! (It's a small recipe--double up and make two if you're feeding more than a few)

1 small onion, finely chopped
2 tsp butter
3/4 cup shredded peeled apple (try Pink Lady apples!)
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
1 egg
4 tsp ketchup
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Dash ground allspice
3/4 pound lean ground beef

In a small skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. In a large bowl, combine the apple, bread crumbs, egg, ketchup, mustard, salt, pepper and allspice. Stir in onion. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into a 6-in. x 5-in. loaf.

Place in an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake uncovered at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until no pink remains and a meat thermometer reads 160.
