Well I Spent A Lifetime Looking For You

I was super late to learn of the beauty and simplicity of the common American meatloaf.  What an amazing wonderful dish to whip up in minutes.  Such a time saver. And as diverse as chili or pasta sauce recipe.  There is almost no way to screw it up.

And the ability to stretttttttttttch out a pound of meat is fantastic!  This is a Mexican Ground Turkey version with pinto beans and loads of veggies.
Served with quick pan seared asparagus with garlic and lemon.

Mexican Turkey Meatloaf:

  • 1 lb of ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup of oatmeal
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 can of drained and rinsed pinto beans
  • 2-3 chopped jalapeno
  • 1 large zucchini diced small chunks
  • 1/4 cup of frozen corn
  • garlic, minced
  • Seasoning: squeeze of dijon mustard and dashes of Worcestershire Sauce, cumin seeds, dried Mexican oregano, dash of cayenne, s&p
  • 6oz Can of tomato paste OR your homemade roasted tomato salsa
Mix it all together except for the tomato paste, not too much.  Form it on a sheet pan and bake on 350 for 50 minutes.  Ten minutes before it's done, top with the seasoned tomato paste or right after it comes out, top with your homemade salsa.
