TIP OF THE DAY: Popcorn Meat Loaf, A Healthier Meat Loaf Recipe

Here’s how to add fiber to a meatloaf and have fun with it. The recipe is courtesy Popcorn.org, the website of The Popcorn Board.

Don’t expect pieces of popcorn popping up in the slices of meatloaf. The popcorn is ground in the food processor and used instead of breadcrumbs, which (unless they’re whole wheat breadcrumbs) contribute zero fiber.

See if anyone can guess what the “secret ingredient” is. (Food fun: You can tip them off by garnishing the meatloaf with a sprinkle of popcorn.)

Preparation time is 10 minutes; baking time is 1 hour.
