Turkey Meatloaf

Image

My picture skills might not do this recipe much justice–but I have to say that this meatloaf was really good!! I liked it as good as a “regular” meatloaf:-)

Ingredients:

1 pound ground turkey (93% lean or greater)

1 small to medium chopped onion

1 egg

1/4 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup no sugar added applesauce or a small/medium apple blended with a little water

1 can tomato paste (no salt added)

1 tablespoon agave nectar

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp mustard

1/4 teaspoon chili powder

salt and pepper to taste

Spray a loaf pan with Pam cooking spray. Saute the onion with Pam spray until translucent. In a large bowl, mix the ground turkey, sautéed onion, oatmeal, egg, applesauce, 1/4 cup only of the tomato paste, salt and pepper. Form mixture into a loaf and put into the loaf pan.

In smaller bowl, mix the remaining tomato paste, agave nectar, worcestershire sauce, mustard and chili powder. Spread over the top of the loaf. Bake uncovered at 375 for approximately 40 to 45 minutes. Turn the broiler on low for the last 1 to 2 minutes to give it a nice caramelized flavor.

My husband and I really enjoyed this!!! I will definitely be making it again.

Crockpot Mexi Chicken Lettuce Wraps

So bummed, I forgot to take the after picture when it was done cooking:-( But here is the picture right as everything was put into the crockpot.

Ingredients:

4 to 6 chicken breasts

2 tablespoons taco seasoning (preferably low sodium)

1 jalapeño, seeded and sliced

1 16 ounce jar of salsa

1 onion, chopped

Iceberg Lettuce or Romaine Leaves (for wrapping when done)

Rub the taco seasoning on all the chicken breasts. Place the chicken with seasoning in the crockpot. Scatter onion and sliced jalapeño over the chicken. Pour the salsa on top. Cover the crockpot and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours.

Then, shred the chicken. We simply left the chicken in the crockpot and began shredding it with a fork and knife.

Serve with your lettuce leaves. Enjoy!
