As far as the potatoes go, nothing fancy there, but we loved them as well, so I'll post them after the meatloaf!
"Homestyle Turkey Meatloaf"
Adapted from Eating For Life Cookbook
1 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey (I only used 1lb because thats how its packaged here)
1 onion, chopped (I diced mine pretty small)
4 egg whites
1 cup salsa
3/4 cup Old Fashioned Oats, uncooked
1 pkg vegetable soup mix (dry)- this added some yummy flavor!
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup ketchup
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and coat a loaf pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, compine the turkey, onion, egg whites, salsa, oats, soup mix, and black pepper. MIX WELL.
Press mixture into prepared loaf pan.
Spread the ketchup overtop.
Bake until meatloaf is no longer pink in the middle, about 60 minutes. (It may take longer. I bumped my oven up to 375 and it barely finished in an hour!) WORTH THE WAIT. I promise!
Easy as it Gets Mashed Sweet Potatoes
- 3 medium sized sweet potatoes
- Chili Powder
-DASH of ground red pepper
For you measurement freaks (I am one of them)- get over it. Just eyeball it and taste it. Anywhere from about 1/2tsp to 1tsp would be good!
Dice up your sweet potato (I leave skin on, but you could peel them first) and steam (Or boil, or microwave!) until soft and "mash-able."
Now, I put all of the spices in the bottom of a medium-sized bowl so that when i put the potatoes in to mash, they would start to absorb the seasonings. You could mash, and then add, or add while you mash. If you haven't noticed- this is no sophisticated recipe here.
Just look for an end result like this:
So yummy! Enjoy :) We also had some green beans with our loaf and potatoes. Like I said, a real comfort meal.
