Medical Advisor to the Calorie Control Council
Meatloaf has always been a favorite comfort food of mine but it’s not very healthy. My mom brought over this lighter version and I loved it so I asked her for the recipe. You can eat it with or without tomato sauce. I’ll make it on the weekend for my family and even my two-year-old enjoys it.
3 pounds of lean ground turkey
1 chopped onion
2 stalks chopped carrot
2 stalks chopped celery
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 tbspn Dijon mustard
¾ cup plain panko breadcrumbs
Saute chopped vegetables in extra virgin olive oil until soft. Mix veggies with beaten eggs and remaining ingredients. Mold into a loaf and bake at 350’ for one hour.
