Full of flavour and healthy goodness this meat loaf is the bomb! A couple years ago I bought these little bread pans from home sense and I love using them for little banana breads or meatloafs. They are great for portioning things and they’re just super cute.
So anyway, you can make this meatloaf into one pan but you may need to cook it just a little bit longer.
As a kid I used to hear the word meatloaf and immediately think “gross”. It is kind of a gross word anyway, “loaf” lol. But as an adult because I pretty much live in the kitchen of course I’m going to try and make a delicious version of this “loaf.”
Of course I use ground turkey because on a rare occasion do I ever use beef. It’s healthier and it’s just my preference now. I find turkey great to work with as it is more moist than beef so you don’t need a lot of extra add ons.
I wanted to try a fill this recipe with a lot of great vegetables for more volume, moisture, and flavour. It definitely worked very well. The mushrooms in it just give it that extra moisture and health benefits as well.
I cannot rave about the macros more. Packed FULL of protein with little carbs and fat. One serving is only a little more than 200 calories so you can’t go wrong there. Hell you could even eat two at a time which is what I’ll probably do…
I use a ton of spices and am generous with the salt as well to bring out all the flavour. Aside from grating a few vegetables it is a really easy dish as well and great to prepare ahead of time as it does take a little while to cook.
So here it is! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
