Today’s Menu: Turkey Meatloaf w/ Glazed Mini Carrots, Green Beans, and Harvest Grain Bread

Another hot and humid day around here today. Inside cool and comfortable along with a hearty comfort food dinner! I prepared Turkey Meatloaf along with Glazed Carrots, Green Beans, and Harvest Grain Bread. I used 3 mini foil pans for the Meatloaf, freezing one them for later. For the Turkey I used Honeysuckle White Ground Turkey Extra Lean (99/1). Very easy recipe. To make your Sauce topping you’ll need Ketchup, Worcestershire Sauce, and Heinz 57 Sauce. For the Meatloaf you just combine your spices, (Roasted Ground Cumin, Onion Powder, Parsley, Ground Thyme, Sea Salt, Pepper) melted Butter, and Minced Garlic with the Ground Turkey, Ketchup, and Bread Crumbs. Put equal amounts in your pans or pan and bake at 350 degrees for 50 – 55 minutes. It comes out one delicious Turkey Meatloaf! I left the recipe at the end of the post along with the Glazed Carrots recipe.

For sides we had Green Beans, Glazed Carrots, and baked Harvest Grain Bread. I used Del Monte Green Beans in a can, just warmed and serve. I used mini carrots for my Glazed Carrots. Just boil the Carrots and in a large bowl combine 2 tablespoons Honey, 1 tablespoon Olive or Canola Oil, 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon fresh chopped Parsley, 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt, and 1/8 teaspoon Pepper. When the Carrots are tender drain the water and add the Carrots to Honey mixture and lightly toss till all Carrots are coated, and serve. i baked the Harvest Grain Bread Roll at 400 degrees for 12 minutes, Love that Bread! For dessert/snack later just some Presidents Pub Spreadable Cheese on Ritz Whole Wheat Crackers.
