Thanksgiving 2014

Heya everyone! It's been 5 looong years since I last updated this blog and I was thinking of retiring it for good. But when I checked the pageviews, I (surprisingly) still got a lot of visitors from Google! And I thought that if people still come here to get information then I should not close the blog. So here I am, blogging again about food and recipes. And because it's Thanksgiving, I'm sharing one of my favorite low-fat turkey dish from :) No, it's not a roasted turkey recipe nor a Thanksgiving stuffing / side dish as we don't really celebrate Thanksgiving here in our country. I hope you enjoy it! And if you have any yummy turkey dish to share, feel free to comment below. Happy cooking dearies!

Bobby Deen's New-Fashioned Meat Loaf

2 tbsp ketchup
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp yellow mustard
1 large egg
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup 1-percent milk
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Kosher salt
1 cup (from about 3 slices bread) fresh whole-wheat bread crumbs
2 medium carrots, coarsely grated
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 sweet onion (such as Vidalia), finely chopped
1 1/4 pound lean ground turkey

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and mustard.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, tomato sauce, milk, Worcestershire, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; stir in the bread crumbs. Add the carrots, garlic, and onion and mix to combine.

3. Add the turkey and mix just until incorporated. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking sheet and shape into a 9- by 3 1/2-inch loaf. Brush the loaf with the ketchup mixture. Bake until the internal temperature registers 160 degrees F, 40 to 45 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

This recipe will yield 4 servings. Cost per serving is $1.25 :) Total time is 1 hour and 5 minutes (prep time is 15min). ENJOY and Happy Thanksgiving!
