Turkey Meatloaf


Traditional meatloaf is made with marbled ground chuck, which is loaded with artery-clogging saturated fat, and bound together with junky white bread crumbs. Create a leaner, meaner version of your favorite recipe by substituting low-fat ground turkey for the beef, and slash the carbs by cutting out the bread crumbs. To stretch the recipe and add a blast of nutrition, mix plenty of chopped and sautéed onions, carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms, or other vegetables into the turkey. With these simple tweaks, you'll create a low-carb, protein-rich "turkey meatloaf" that's light on calories and big on taste!
