A delicious zippy twist on an old favorite.
1/2 pound lean ground round or ground chuck
1/2 pound lean ground turkey
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup skim milk (or what you have on hand)
1 cup chunky salsa (make it mild or spicy… your choice!)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium size bowl and mix well.
2. Form into a loaf shape.
3. Place in a loaf pan, on a rack to drain the fat if you have one. You can also place it in a casserole dish made for baking. If you don’t have a rack to allow fat to drain, you can take a large piece of aluminum foil and crumple it up and place that under the loaf.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.
5. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
Serve topped with more salsa, garlic mashed potatoes and a green veggie.
Diet exchanges: 3 meats, 2 breads, 1 veg and 1 fat per serving.
