Heart Smart Meat Loaf

Vegetable oil cooking spray
1 medium onion, finely diced
1 medium green pepper, finely diced
1 large celery stalk, finely diced
1 tsp. thyme
1 lb. ground turkey breast
1lb. lean ground beef
½  c.  rolled oats
2/3 c. ketchup, divided
2 egg whites
1 ½  tsp. freshly ground pepper

In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, sauté the onion, green pepper, celery and thyme over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes; add water if the pan becomes dry. 
In a large bowl, combine the onion mixture, turkey and beef.  Add the rolled oats, 1/3 c. of  ketchup, egg whites and pepper; mix well.

Spray a 9x13 inch shallow baking dish with the cooking spray.  Spoon the mixture into the baking dish and shape it into a flat loaf about 2 inches high.  Spread remaining ketchup on top.  Bake at 350  for 45 min. to 1 hour, or until loaf is cooked through.  Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
