food:: meatloaf monday

Meatloaf.  Not only a comfort food, but a great musical artist from the 80’s.

Listen to Bat Out of Hell and get your teen-dance club on and end the night with Paradise By the Dashboard Light.  Because that’s how they ended Sprite Night at Peony Park every week in Omaha when I was a kid.

If you need to catch up: this why I am stuck in a time warp.

Meatloaf is My Homeboy::
2 lbs. ground turkey

1 egg

1/4 cup minute rice (optional)

1 (or 2) clove garlic, minced

1 small onion, finely diced

1 tsp parsley

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup bread crumbs (or even better – a big crunched handful of Lay’s plain potato chips and skip adding the salt above)

Mush everything around in a big bowl together, pat it into a loaf pan* and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 1 hour in a loaf pan

**OR stuff green peppers with the mixture, top with 2 or 3 Tbs. of spaghetti sauce, and place in a 9” x 13” foil-lined pan and decrease baking time to about 45 minutes**

PS ~ the super easy way to do the seasonings is to use a package of Lipton soup mix (try the onion or the vegetable soup)

I serve it with some fresh veggies or a salad to lighten things up.

Thanks for stopping by ~ keep the 80’s vibe going tomorrow with a dose of Bad Medicine and rock out to some Bon Jovi!

See you back here on Wednesday 🙂
