Erin's Best Meatloaf Ever

1 large onion finely chopped
1/4 cup Light Italian dressing ( we like Newman's Own)
2 pounds lean ground beef
3/4 cup ketchup, divided into 1/4 cup and 1/2 cup (we use organic so that there is no HFCS in it)
1 package Stove Top stuffing mix for chicken
1 cup water
2 egg whites

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In skillet over medium heat, saute onions in Italian dressing, stirring frequently, until golden brown.
  3. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  4. In large bowl, combine meat, 1/4 cup ketchup, stuffing, water, egg whites, and onions and stir to mix well.
  5. Place mixture in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish, pushing into loaf pan to level.
  6. Spread remaining 1/2 cup ketchup on top of loaf.
  7. Bake 55 minutes to an hour or until cooked through to an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
