Italian Meat Loaf
My family loves this Italian version of meat loaf that I make with ground turkey!
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 apple, peeled, cored, and finely shredded
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup fine dry seasoned bread crumbs
1 pound ground turkey breast
2/3 cup reduced-fat spaghetti sauce
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, stir together the egg whites, garlic, salt, basil, rosemary, and red pepper. Then stir in the apples, onions, and bread crumbs. Add the turkey and mix until well combined.
Spray a loaf pan with no stick spray. Pat the turkey mixture into the pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
Spread the spaghetti sauce over the turkey. Bake about 25 minutes more or until the turkey is no longer pink. Let stand 5 minutes. Transfer the loaf to a serving plate. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the top. Slice and serve.
To make sure you're buying the leanest ground turkey available, check the label. Look for products made with only turkey breast meat. Many ground turkey products contain the dark meat and the fatty skin.
