Tex-Mex Meatloaf or Meatballs

1/2 cup liquid egg substitute - southwestern flavor
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 cup minced onions
1 cup crushed saltine or other crackers
1 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican style cheese blend
1/2 cup prepared tomato salsa
1 lb ground turkey, or a mixture of ground turkey & ground beef

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Combine all the ingredients except salsa in a mixing bowl.

For meatloaf:
Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray. Pat the mixture into the prepared loaf pan. Pour the salsa on top and spread evenly over the loaf. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the middle reads 180F. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

For meatballs:
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Form the meat mixture into 1" balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, turn the meatballs over, bake for another 10 minutes. Serve with salsa on the side.
