Turkey & Veggie Meatloaf with Sweet Potato Fries



IMG_2834 

Tonight for dinner I made some yummy turkey meatloaf loaded with zucchini and carrots with sweet potato fries and a salad with colorful tomatoes. The meatloaf was super tasty and better than the taste was the fact that it was loaded with veggies.

To make the meatloaf I used about a pound of ground 93/7 turkey and mixed into it 1/2 onion and 4-5 cloves of garlic that I chopped finely in my food processor. Then I added 1 medium sized, finely grated zucchini and 2 medium finely grated carrots and mixed it all together with some Italian seasoned breadcrumbs, a couple tablespoons of tomato sauce (I used veggie loaded Prego), and salt and pepper to taste. Next I formed it into a loaf shape on a lined sheet pan and baked it at 400°F until the internal temperature was 180°F. The last 10 minutes of baking I poured some of the remaining Prego over the top to let it get all nice and saucy.

Paired with sweet potato fries and some salad with balsamic vinaigrette and you have one yummy and veggie loaded meal (some chopped spinach mixed in before baking would be even more awesome). The best part was my daughter ate almost her entire plate. So I will mark this meal as a success!
