I love hanging out with my sisters, we truly are best friends. Both of them live about 2 hours north of me so I try to go up at least once a month to hang out and have some girl time. The last time I was there, my sister made meatloaf for dinner. I’ve never been a fan of meatloaf, at least thats the story I told myself but I didn’t have anything to back that up? You know as a kid how you see something and if it looks gross you think “EW!”, well that has always been my opinion of meatloaf so when my sister was making it for dinner, I raised an eyebrow.
But to my surprise, I actually loved it. Call me crazy but maybe we should actually try the foods we swore off before the age of 10
I asked my sis for a copy of her recipe and have made it twice since so I figured it was worth posting on here for you guys, with macros included.
What you need:
5 oz of diced onion
6 oz of diced peppers ( You can really play with the amount you use, more or less, this is just what mine ended up weighing after I diced, the same goes for your onion)
60 grams of uncooked oatmeal ( I used 1 quick oats)
1.5 lbs of ground turkey (I used 93/7 fat content)
1 cup of evaporate milk
3 TBL of ketchup
2 TBL of barbeque sauce
1 TBL olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper for taste
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Add 1 TBL olive oil to your pan along with your peppers and onions and sautee until completely cooked (onion is transparent).
-In another bowl, mix your oatmeal and evaporate milk. Once your peppers and onions are cooked, add those to the oatmeal and milk mixture.
-Then, add in your ground turkey, 1 TBL of ketchup, salt, pepper and mix really well. ( I used my hands, it seemed like the best way to make sure all the ingredients were mixed together).
-Transfer mixture to a greased loaf pan.
-Mix remaining 2 TBL of ketchup and 2 TBL of barbeque sauce and spread over the top.
-Bake 1 hour 10 min until reaches 165 degrees.
Let cool for 20 minutes before slicing.
Macros per serving:
( I made a rookie mistake and forgot to measure the total weight of my ingredients so that I could know the macros per oz. The macros on the serving above is if I cut my meatload into 7 even slices, those macros are for 1 slice). I also noticed taking a picure of meatloaf and making it look appetizing is work for the professionals haha…below is a picture of mine. I promise, it tastes WAY better than my picture skills will show
