Meatloaf and mashed potatoes with gravy is just good comfort food, add green beans and I’m in heaven.
But what if you want to cut some of the fat and carbs from this meal?
What about making meatloaf using ground turkey? Turkey would cut some of the fat from the meatloaf and once you add all the ‘stuff’ it will taste the same.
Let’s look at a recipe for a Turkey Meatloaf that will fit the bill.
- 2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 3 gloves minced garlic
- 1 1/4 lbs ground turkey
- 1 egg or 1/4 cup egg substitute
- 3/4 cup ketchup
- 2 teaspoons Worchestershire sauce
- 3/4 teaspoon salt (I use no salt)
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- Melt the butter in a skillet.
- Cook the onion and garlic in the melted butter for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Place mixture in a large bowl and let it cool for about 5 minutes.
- Combine the turkey, egg, 1/4 cup of the catsup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper with the onion mixture using a wooden spoon.
- Press meatloaf into an 8×4-inch loaf pan.
- Spread remaining ketchup on top. (I have used Rotel for an extra kick)
- Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 50-55 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
- Remove from the oven and let it stand for 5 minutes before serving.
