Today’s Menu: Bacon Wrapped Turkey Meatloaf w/ Corn on the Cob and Mashed Potatoes

 

Bacon wrapped Turkey Meatloaf 002

 

 

 
A really perfect day out today! It’s about 77 degrees and sunny. Beautiful day but it was a very, very, long night. My parents had made some friends for dinner at a Ponderosa Steak House. they didn’t order from the menu instead chose the Buffet, BIG MISTAKE!! After coming home about an 1 hour or so they both became very sick, Mom worse than my Dad. Upset stomach, nausea and everything that goes with food poisoning. My Mom was so bad I called her family doctor on call service. He said the best cure is to let it run its course, which it eventually did. I won’t go in to detail but I was still doing laundry at 1:00 am. But both are fine now with no after effects. I’m not big on Buffets and that’s the main reason! For dinner tonight I prepared a Bacon Wrapped Turkey Meatloaf w/ Corn on the Cob and Mashed Potatoes.

 
I had prepared Turkey Meatloaf before but not wrapped with Bacon, Low Sodium Turkey Bacon. I had the idea off a cooking show. They said by adding the Bacon it gave your Meatloaf an even better taste. They had used Pork Bacon but I’m using Oscar Mayer Low Sodium Turkey Bacon instead. To make the Meatloaf I’ll need the following; 2 Tablespoons Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter, 3 Cloves Garlic, Minced, 1 1/4 lbs Jennie O Extra Lean Ground Turkey, 3-4 Slices of uncooked Oscar Mayer Low Sodium Turkey Bacon, 1/2 Cup Progesso Italian Style Breadcrumbs, 1/4 Cup Egg Substitute (Egg Beaters), 1 1/4 Cups Hunt’s Catsup, 4 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce, 3 Tablespoons Heinz 57 Sauce, 2 Teaspoons Smoked Cumin, 2 Teaspoons Onion Powder, 2 Teaspoons Ground Thyme, 2 Teaspoons Parsley, 3/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt, and 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Then melt the butter in a skillet and add the Garlic in melted butter for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place the mixture in a large bowl to cool for 5 minutes. Combine turkey, bread crumbs, egg, 1/4 cup of the catsup, 1 table spoon Worcestershire sauce, spices, and garlic mixture. Press meatloaf into an 8×4-inch loaf pan. Wrap 4 slices of Turkey Bacon over the top and down on to the sides of the meatloaf. Take the remaining catsup and add 3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce and 3 Tablespoons Heinz 57 Sauce, and stir to well mixed. Add as a topping for the meatloaf. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50-55 minutes or until Internal temperature should reach 165 degrees. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving. The Turkey Meatloaf was delicious before but with the added Bacon it gave it that much more flavor! I’ll add Turkey Bacon to it from now on!

 
To go with the Meatloaf I prepared some more of the boiled Mini Corn Ears. I used Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. They come frozen and all you do is boil them in water for about 12 minutes. Their 50 calories and 9 calories per mini ear. These are actually better than a lot of the fresh Corn on the cob I’ve had, nice job Green Giant! I also prepared Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. You have to have Mashed Potatoes when you have Meatloaf, I think it’s an unwritten rule! One good comfort food dinner! For dessert later, just sticking with some fruit. A Banana and maybe a few slices of a Honey Crisp Apple.

  1. Wow, I’m sorry your parents and you had to go through that! It’s a wonderful thing that you were able to help out while they were sick. I’ve had food poisoning before, and I can sympathize exactly with what you all went through.
    The meatloaf sounds good — I had never thought of using bacon, either. Worth a try!
