Meat Monday:

Food ideas chili, meatloaf, meatballs or hamburgers,–mix half extra lean ground beef with lean ground turkey–super easy–super yummy!!

These are easy meals and can be done quickly!!

Carrie’s easy peasy Meatloaf:

1 package of extra lean ground beef

1 package of extra lean ground turkey

1 egg

1/2 cup of oats

big glug of chunky salsa

mix of cut up veggies (cut up fine….celery, broccoli,)

Mix it all together(which takes all of 3 minutes) …put it into a baking pan–top it with more salsa(no ketchup!!!!!)

Bake it at 350 for 45-60 minutes……serve it with brown rice, and a garden salad or steamed veggies!!

Delish and Nutrish!





  1. Well Patty, I think a glug would be more than a blob but less than a slathering. 😀

    I tried this with all turkey and it was great. Maybe I’ll try with some lean beef next time. Broccoli was great as the “mixed veg -chopped”.

    I can’t wait for next Meat Monday!! I don’t suppose bacon will be in that recipe?
