Food for thought and the tummy!
Today was Harold's last day before he goes on tour, and I cooked a great dinner for a few of us! Apple strussel, roasted potatoes, green beans and the ever so popular turkey meatloaf!
Lots of friends and family have asked for my recipe, so I've decided to write it on here for you to all enjoy!!
Bryan's Turkey Meatloaf
2lbs ground turkey meat
2 tbs. bread crumbs
2 tbs. Montreal Seasoning
1.5 tbs. Italian Seasoning
1 cup cottage cheese (Sounds gross, but keeps the meatloaves nice and moist!)
3 tbs. grated parmesan cheese
1 medium onion chopped
1 bag baby spinach
2 cloves minced garlic
1 bottle chili sauce (Not thai chili sauce, try Heinz Chili sauce located next to the ketchup)
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350*
Saute onion in a pan over medium-high heat. Do not brown. Add salt and pepper while cooking (salt helps draw out onions moisture).
Add spinach and wilt. Add garlic. Set aside.
Combine meat, eggs, bread crumbs, seasonings, cheeses in a bowl. Add onion mixture. Form individual meatloaves on a prepared slotted roasting pan, or in a 9x13.
Bake 25 minutes. Spoon chili sauce on each loaf and cook for 15-20 mins longer.
Trust me, this is a GREAT recipe. It's simple, fast, and super tasty!!
