Mini Turkey Meat loaf's
These are one of my husband's favorite meals that I make! Bonus they are healthy!!
So after my first child I was looking for way's to get back to my pre-baby weight! I was put on bed rest with him & gained a lot of weight. He was actually the child I had the hardest time losing my weight with.
So on my quest to shed the pounds I knew I needed to eat better!! Well I'm kind of a Lifetime junkie! There used to be a show on there called Cook Yourself Thin! I don't believe it's on anymore but I could be wrong!
Anyhow they had a cookbook & I had ordered it. It has some super yummy meals! These meat loaf's were so good & had so much flavor I didn't feel like I was eating healthy! I'm kinda of a pizza & wings girl!
For the meatloaf:
1 slice of whole wheat bread
1/2 cup skim milk
1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
1 onion diced
5oz bag of baby spinach leaves
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
For the Glaze:
3 Tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon hot sauce
*Preheat oven to 375 degrees
*Grind bread in food processor or blender until fine. Transfer to a large bowl & pour milk over the crumbs
*Heat 1 Tbsp Olive oil in a large skillet over medium add onion & cook until soft & golden. Then add spinach stir till it's wilted. Transfer to bowl with the crumbs. Add turkey, parm, egg, salt, pepper & nutmeg. Mix well
*Pack 1 cup of the mixture into a dry measuring cup then shake out on to a cookie sheet repeat until you have used all the mixture. Gently pat the little loafs down.
*Bake until cooked through about 40 mins
* Make glaze while they are cooking & brush over them during the last 10-15 minutes!
They are so yummy I think you will really enjoy them! We eat with a side salad or baked asparagus!
Enjoy & let me know if you try them :)
