sunday meatloaf.

just popping in to share an improved recipe that actually came out quite well! needed to make something to eat for lunch this week- i had some ground turkey that i had to use and considering I’ve made tacos like 10 times in the past month, figured i should mix it up a bit.

with it being so chilly the past few days, meatloaf sounded really good- but i didnt have any breadcrumbs. i did, however, have a ton of mini pretzels, so gave two cups of pretzels a whirl in my food processor.

before mixing up the rest of the ingredients, i preheated the oven to 375 degrees and lined a cookie sheet with tin foil. then it was time to get my hands dirty!

2 lbs ground turkey
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of parm cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cayanne pepper
1 tsp black pepper
ground pretzel crumbs

dumped all of the ingredients  in a bowl and mixed together (hands work best!) after all the ingredients were combined, formed into a loaf and then i covered the top in ketchup.

next, i baked for an hour. once it was done, i let it sit for fifteen minutes and then sliced it up!

off to get ready to watch some football- hope everyone is enjoying the last of their weekend!
