Today’s Menu: Mini Turkey Meat Loaves w/ Green Beans and New Potatoes

 

Mini Turkey Meat Loaf 005

 

 
Well they were right, the heat and humidity returned! Started the day off with Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, a Scrambled Egg, and a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Love that Turkey Bacon to start the day! Went and spent time with my Dad at the rehab center, a couple of hours or so, got the car washed, and back home for the day. I made an early dinner tonight Mom had to be somewhere at 7:00 this evening. It was comfort food heaven tonight for dinner. I prepared Mini Turkey Meat Loaves w/ Green Beans and New Potatoes.

Instead of making Mini Turkey Meat Loaves all in tin pans I made one Mini Turkey Meat Loaf Pan and 3 Patties. I got the idea from the current issue of EatingWell Magazine. The Patties looked and sounded so good I had to try them. For the Turkey I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. To make the Sauce topping I’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, top with sauce, and bake at 375 degrees for 30 – 35 minutes, inner temperature of 165 degrees. To make the Patties just take the meat mixture and form it into Patties and top with sauce. They both came out delicious Turkey Meatloaf and Turkey Meatloaf Patties! And as all recipes you can add your own Choice of ingredients. I left the full recipe at the end of the post. We ate the Patties for dinner and saved the Mini Loaf to make sandwiches with for lunch or snacks.

For my side dishes it all by Del Monte. I heated up a can of Del Monte Low Sodium Cut Green Beans and a can of Del Monte Whole New Potatoes. Del Monte Products are always fresh and easy to prepare. Then for dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
