loaf it up

how can you make meatloaf LOOK photo-worthy?

you can’t.

because it always ends up looking like a loaf of “stuff”.

and the word loaf, is just weird and doesn’t sound appetizing.

but i SWEAR this super lean meatloaf tastes SO much better than it looks!!

and uses basic ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge, ready to be used up!

Lean Turkey Meatloaf

whatcha need:
1lb ground turkey
1 whole egg
1/4 cup egg whites
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup pizza sauce (or marinara or ketchup)
1 pepper (chopped)
handful of spinach

Turkey Loaf

step 1: preheat oven to 375 degrees


step 2: make sure the ground turkey is raw, or you’ll overbake it (been there done that) and it’ll be super dry.  so in a big bowl, combine ALL your ingredients.

step 4: spray a bread pan – the deep “loaf” looking ones OR if you want to get all cutesie like i did you can disperse the mixture into mini-loaf pans AND muffin tins!!  the muffin tin ones are PERFECT for people that eat on the go, or for kids because they’re little and fun looking.  yeah, i said meatloaf was fun looking. whateva.
