  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, milk, and egg. Add the remaining meat loaf ingredients. Using your hands or a spoon, combine all the ingredients. Transfer to a shallow baking dish. Pat the mixture into a 7 x 3 x 2-inch loaf.
  3. Arrange the potatoes, carrots, and onion around the meat loaf. Lightly spray the vegetables with cooking spray.
  4. Bake for 1 hour, or until the meat loaf registers 160°F throughout, stirring the vegetables once halfway through. Transfer the baking dish to a cutting board. Let the meat loaf stand for 5 minutes before slicing it.
  5. Meanwhile, put the barbecue sauce in a small microwaveable bowl. Microwave on 100 percent power (high) for 1 minute 30 seconds, or until heated through.
  6. Transfer the meat loaf and vegetables to a serving plate. Spoon the barbecue sauce over the meat loaf.

Tip: Serving size 1 slice meat loaf and 1 heaping cup vegetables.
