Meatloaf for Twelve

meatloaf

Baking meatloaf is a messy undertaking.  I have found the paper (non-foil) disposable pans  to be perfect for baking it.  I then transfer it to a serving platter .   It takes an hour an a half to bake and the paper pan holds up even though the instructions say to use the pan for an hour only.

 

Recipe

 

4 lbs of ground turkey or beef

1 large onion, diced

1 bunch of green onions, diced

1 t of sea salt

2 t of minced dry garlic

4 eggs

 1 1/2 cup ketchup (separated)

 

 Set oven to 425.  Mix all ingredients with half a cup of ketchup.  Place into a sprayed 11 x 14 baking dish, forming into a loaf. 

 

Bake for 45 minutes covered with foil.  Remove cover and pour out excess juices and foam.  Spoon the rest of the ketchup  on the meatloaf.  Bake uncovered for an additional 45 minutes. 

Cut into 12 rectangles.  Place  their plate before them, with potatoes and a colorful veggie, and watch them smile at this wholesome meal you have prepared.  🙂

Crockpot Mango Meatballs

meatbls

2 lbs of ground turkey

1 bundles of green onions, diced

1 t minced dried garlic

1/2 t sea salt

1 bottle of mango coconut pepper sauce*

~~

Add onions and spices to turkey.  Form into 30 balls.  Brown in a bit of oil.  Set crock pot to high to get the surface hot. Turn temp to low.  Place half the balls into crockpot and pour half the sauce on top.  Repeat.  

Cook for two hours,  Stir after one hour and move the lid sideways for the last hour.

Garnish with cilantro. Serve with your favorite rice dish.  I make a white rice with peppers and onions to add more veggies to the meal…which I will post soon.

 

  • The mango sauce I use is the mango coconut pepper sauce in a bottle made by the Tropical Pepper Co,  but any sauce can be substituted.  I particularly like this one because it is slightly piquant and slightly sweet.
