Athenian Meatloaf with Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce Recipe Photo - Diabetic Gourmet Magazine Recipes


  • 2 pounds 96% lean Ground Beef
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs*
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1-1/2 teaspoons dried Greek seasoning, divided
  • 1 cup low-fat or regular Greek-style yogurt
  • 1/2 cup diced cucumber

    * To make soft breadcrumbs: Tear several slices of fresh bread (French or whole wheat work well) into 1-inch pieces and pulse in a blender or food processor to make coarse crumbs. One slice of bread yields about 1/2 cup soft breadcrumbs.


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Combine Ground Beef, bread crumbs, onion, milk, egg, 1 tablespoon Greek seasoning in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.
  2. Shape beef mixture into 10 x 4-inch loaf on rack in broiler pan. Bake in 350F oven 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours, until instant-read thermometer inserted into center registers 160F.
  3. Meanwhile, combine yogurt, cucumber and remaining 1-1/2 teaspoons Greek seasoning in medium bowl. Set aside.
  4. Let stand 10 minutes; cut into slices. Serve with cucumber-yogurt sauce.
