Can you feel Autumn yet? In my neighborhood, the kids just went back to school, the pool season is wrapping up, and I can't wait for the leaves to start changing color. I love, love, love Fall!
Naturally, when the weather starts to change, so does our menu at home. But, I really want to keep our comfort food as healthy as possible. So, this week, I made Turkey Meatloaf and it was so delicious - and very healthy. Plus, I was able to incorporate Oatmeal into this recipe which made me super happy!
Here's the recipe for Yummy Turkey Meatloaf:
About 20 ounces of lean ground turkey breast
1 Small Onion - Finely chopped
1 Medium Carrot - Peeled and grated
1 Stalk of Celery - Grated
1/2 Cup Oatmeal
2 Egg whites
1/2 Cup of Ketchup
1.5 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, onion, carrot, celery, oatmeal and egg whites. Make sure all of your ingredients are thoroughly mixed together and then transfer the mixture to a bread loaf pan
Bake in oven at 350°F for approximately 1 hour or until thermometer reads 170 °F
The next time I make meatloaf, I will definitely use this recipe. It exceeded my expectations. Also, if you double the recipe you can use the leftovers for simple sloppy joes. Turkey meatloaf + Sloppy Joes = Two easy, healthy and very family friendly meals. What more could a mom ask for?
