Hey Lovin Losin Fam!
We just got hit with a huge winter storm here in Utah and so I'm getting myself winterized! Hahah In order to do that I made this amazing Turkey Meatloaf and made it in single servings so I could freeze and take for lunch. I am more than happy nuking this in the microwave at work than going out in this white stuff! I did this the other day and paired it with a salad with just salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. For those of you following WW SmartPoints - Balsamic vinegar is 1 SP for 1 TBSP. I also thought this would have been good cut up and placed on the salad or if you have more points, calories or carbs than I do, you could place the meatloaf on some bread and make a pretty good sandwich! It's a healthy spin on a traditional comfort food and it truly hits the spot when noon hits or even dinner time. It won't disappoint!
I made these in single serving sizes to make it more convenient to take for lunch. I tried to find a mini loaf pan but was unable, however, I did find at Bed Bath & Beyond an large cupcake pan - it had 6 per pan. I bought 2 and that is what I used. I filled each tin with roughly 5 oz of the meat mixture before topping with the Worcestershire mixture.
Give it a try and let me know if it hits the spot!
2 C Rolled Oats
2/3 C Fat Free Milk
2 C Diced Onion
5.25 lbs Extra Lean Ground Turkey
1 C Ketchup
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Pepper
4 Tsp Italian Seasoning
To be placed on Meatloaf:
1/2 C Ketchup
1/8 C Worcestershire Sauce
- Mix oats and milk. Let sit for 10 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- While oats and milk are soaking, combine the remaining ingredients with the exception of the topping.
- Once everything is combined, add in oats mixture. Stir well.
- Divide out the mixture among the mini cupcake or loaf pans. If you are using the large cupcake pan and you are making 16 servings, you should divide out 5 oz each.
- Once divided, combine ketchup and Worcestershire sauce. Top each loaf with about 1/2 TBSP of mixture.
- Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes depending on altitude. In Utah, I did 50 minutes.
Feel free to wrap each one in foil and use for lunch! Or serve immediately to family and watch them devour!
