Mini Turkey Meatloaves

Sunday night, the Chef and I had a low-key day. I worked the front desk at Pure Barre, and then we each worked out before the Chef served this delicious, comforting, but healthy meal. It reminded us of a healthier version of the meatloaves we used to eat as kids growing up. The potato mash was extremely tasty, and we will definitely serve it alongside other dinner dishes. 

Recipe from EMeals: serves 2 
2 Tbs olive oil, divided 
2 Tbs minced garlic, divided 
28oz organic San Marzano whole tomatoes, undrained
12 oz lean ground turkey 
1/2 cup soft, fresh, whole wheat breadcrumbs or panko 
1 egg yolk
2 Tbs shredded Parmesan cheese 
1 Tbs chopped fresh basil
1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp pepper

Heat 1 Tbs oil in a saucepan over medium heat and add 1 Tbs garlic. Cook 1 minute, chop tomatoes in can with kitchen scissors; add to garlic. Increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes or until mixture is reduced by half. Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add garlic and saute 1 minute. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine ground turkey, breadcrumbs, egg yolk, parmesan, bail, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix well. Shape mixture into 2 loaves. Place loaves on a rack in a broiler pan, top each with 1/4 cup tomato sauce. Bake 35-40 mins or until done. 

Side dish: 
1/2 lb red-skinned potatoes, cut into 2 inch pieces 
1/4 cul low-sodium chicken broth 
1 Tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp salt, divided 
1/2 tsp pepper, divided 
12 oz bag steam-in-bag green beans 

Place potatoes in a saucepan with water and cover, bring to a boil. Cook 12-14 mins or until tender; drain. Add broth, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher to desired consistency. 

Cook green beans in a microwave according to package directions. 

Serve and enjoy this delicious meal!
