Whip It Up Wednesday!
I love me some good meatloaf, there is something insanely comforting about meat in the shape of a loaf of bread. I can’t explain it but it is a real deal thing. Serve it up with Mashed Potatoes and you’ve got yourself a home run hit for pure comfort food. But I am rearranging my life and I’m eating clean and carbs have been benched till I reach my goal. So I had to come up with a clean version of my favorite meatloaf to scratch the itch. And as far as mashed potatoes go, I swapped them out for delicious steamed veggies. Not the same but my waist line will like it better!
Zesty Italian Turkey Meatloaf
1 lb Lean Ground Turkey
