I like meatloaf, but sometimes I like to lighten it up with turkey. It is way healthier and for me with my gallbladder issues easier for my diegestion. You can make a meatloaf with pretty much any type of meat, you can use any kind of binder you like, such as rice, crackers, oatmeal or bread crumbs. Also with flavour you can add pretty much anything. BBQ sauce, marinara sauce and or ketchup. It all depends on what you are going for.
The other night I threw this meat loaf together.
- 1 package of ground turkey
- 1 egg
- 3/4c oatmeal
- Salt and Pepper
- 1/2c strawberry jalapeño BBQ sauce, plus 1/4c to put on top while cooking
Preheat oven to 375. Mix all indgredients together and put into a pan lined with cooking spray. Cover the top itch the BBQ sauce. Cook for 30-45 min until it is cooked. Let set for 5-10 min then cut and serve.
We had ours cauliflower mash (2 potatoes and half a head of cauliflower cooked, then mashed together with butter, salt and pepper) and steamed broccoli.
Have fun with meatloaf. It is an old fashioned food, but you can vamp it anyway you like.
