Menu Monday: Turkey Meatloaf

I have made this meatloaf countless times. It is so yummy and my husband actually asks me to make it! It's also a great way to sneak veggies onto your kid's plate. There are 1,000 calories in the entire meatloaf.

1 TBSP olive oil
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup diced carrot
1 clove garlic, minced
5 slices of the low calorie bread - there is one that has 35 calories a slice. Put in food processor to make bread crumbs. Or just tear apart with your hands, like I do!
2 eggs or 1/2 cup of egg white substitute
1 TBSP soy sauce
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 bottle of chili sauce - divided, I think Kroger's brand is the best
1 pound ground turkey - use at least 93/7


1. Turn oven to 375 F
2. Heat oil in medium skillet. Add onion, celery, carrots and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes or until veggies start to soften. Add a little water if the mixture starts to get dry.
3. Transfer veggies to large bowl. Add eggs, bread crumbs, ground turkey, soy sauce, cumin, paprika, black pepper and 3/4 bottle of chili sauce. Stir well until blended.
4. Pat mixture into a bread loaf pan. Top with remaining chili sauce.
5. Bake meatloaf for 45 minutes. Cut into middle to make sure the turkey has cooked all the way.

Try this mashed cauliflower recipe for a low-calorie side. I haven't tried this specific recipe, but it looks yummy!
