  • 1/2 cup finely grated carrot
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup oats (old fashioned or quick-cooking)
  • 1/4 cup skim or 1% milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 pound lean ground meat (15% fat or less; try beef, pork, lamb, turkey or chicken)

  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients except ground meat.
