Turkey Meatloaf

Makes 6 servings, approx, 3.2 oz

1 tsp coconut oil, for sauteing onions, garlic & mushrooms

5 crimini mushrooms, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, chopped

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, in the last few minutes of sauteing onions & mushrooms

1 tbsp brown mustard, OR any mustard of your choice

2 tsp no salt added, Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

1/2 tsp chili flakes

1 lb Or 0.45360 kg , ground turkey. Most packages that you find at the store/butcher give a little more than a pound & that's fine. Use the whole package.

1 large egg

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or use what is available to you

1 tbsp BBQ sauce AND optional plus 1 tbsp BBQ sauce spread on top of turkey loaf

Let the sauteed veggies cool to room temperature before adding to the rest of the mixture.

Mix the ingredients, except for extra 1 tbsp of BBQ sauce, until well combined & put into a loaf pan. I used parchment paper to line the loaf pan for easier cleanup but it's not necessary. Spread tbsp of BBQ sauce on top of meatloaf.

Bake at 350F for 1hr, 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165F.

*You can decrease the calories & fat by using all turkey breast ground. I just used what I had on hand.

*Nutritional stats will vary slightly, with different product brands used.

* Salt not added because the salt in the mustard, BBQ sauce and Parmesan cheese is enough for me.

*You can replace the mushrooms with chopped spinach, shredded carrots, chopped kale, anything that you prefer.


Till next time,
