Pin It "MA! I need MEATLOAF! MA!... What is she doing? I never know what shes doing in there?"
I love me some Will Ferrel. Who knows what movie that's from?
Hope you all are having a great end to your weekend. My little man has been a tad fussy today... But that's all right. I still got plenty of crafting done during his *short* naps today. I'm pretty excited about all the things I have coming up to show you!
But today, its meatloaf. Sassy Meatloaf to be exact.
I had this meatloaf at my Aunts house one time, and I loved it. And its only 3 points a serving (serving size: 1/2 cup)! Perfect. I don't have a meatloaf pan, so I make this in my muffin tin. I actually like that better because it helps me stick to the portion size. I use my 1/4 cup to spoon it into the muffin cups so I know exactly how much I'm having.
What you'll need:
1 lb. ground turkey breast
1 1/4 cup salsa
3/4 cup quick cooking oatmeal ( I use Quaker 1-Minute Oats)
1 carrot shredded
2 plum tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup coarsely chopped mushrooms
I leave the tomatoes and carrots out, but I wanted to show you the original recipe. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Put the ground turkey breast into a large mixing bowl. Add the oats, chopped mushrooms, and salsa (and the rest of the ingredients if you're going to use them). Stir until mixed well.
Spray the muffin tin with non stick cooking spray. Use a 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup to spoon the mixture into the muffin cups.
Now pop those suckers into the oven and bake for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife inserted into the middle of the cups, comes out clean.
I serve these with mashed potatoes and green beans, and the whole meal is 6 points per serving ( on the points plus program)! And its very satisfying and filling.
There you have it! A quick, easy, and delicious meal for the family. Enjoy!
Have a great rest of your Savory Sunday!
