  1. Hi.

    I'm not sure, so I have to ask :)

    The 4 Points aren't for the whole meatloaf? 4 Points per serving, right?

  3. What size loaf pan do I use and also can I use ground turkey instead of ground beef?

    1. I don't use a loaf pan. I just form into a free standing loaf and place in a 9 x 13 baking dish....and you can certainly use ground turkey instead of the lean ground beef if you want!

  4. How many servings does this make?

    1. how many calories per serving?

    2. It's 4 PP per serving and the recipe makes 8 servings so 32 PP for the entire loaf!
