Recipe Directions for Lentil "Meat" Loaf

  1. "The original recipe has 3/4 cups shredded cheese, but I removed for fat content and sodium reduction. Instead of tomato sauce, I always use ketchup and put ketchup on top as well. I also added an extra egg for more binding and more protein. I make two of these at a time and freeze to eat throughout the month."
