I tried something a little different with the turkey loaf recipe. Instead of salsa I used spaghetti sauce. It was a nice change of pace.
The basic recipe is
Mix together, put in loaf pan and bake at 350 for about an hour.
Next time I may try pizza sauce and sausage seasoning. Maybe a hint of lowfat parmesan and crushed red peppers.
Want it. Plan it. Do it.
Sounds good! Jerry made some mini turkey loaves the other night...will have to make some of these up for next week! Thanks!! =)
DebMO :0) Blessed to be a Blessing...
Ummm.. this sounds delicious. I made something similar and added some raisons-very good! I like the idea of rolled oats. (I usually add bread crumbs) Thanks for sharing!
Continued experimenting tonight with a jar of pizza sauce, Italian seasoning, crushed red peppers and a bit of parmesan cheese. The kids loved it. I like the spaghetti sauce version best so far. I'll have to put some thought into what I try next . . .
was going to make a pot of turkey chili tonight but think I'll go this route instead! Thanks for the idea!
JUNI!!! Where art thou?????
You are welcome, junibird! For my next variation I would like to do barbecue. But first I need to find a BBQ sauce without too much added sugar.
I was shopping for ground meat the other day and noticed that the 93/7 turkey has the same nutrition info as 93/7 beef! I always thought the turkey would be better since it cost more. Our family likes the taste of beef so much more, so I will only buy the ground turkey BreasT if it's reasonably on sale. I think that's at least 98/2?
OptiGirl - my grocery store has an all natural 96/4 ground beef!! It was a lucky find on my part, they don't have it all the time when they do I usually get a few and freeze them!
I have compared ground turkey to beef many times and have found beef always wins when you get down to value per calorie. I compared some turkey burgers in the freezer section the other day and was shocked. The store brand had fantastic nutritionals (high protein, low fat, only a few seasonings, no added fillers) and the Jennie-O brand was disgusting. It pays to always read your labels!!
