I am very skeptical about meals tasting delicious especially when it comes to ground turkey or ground chicken. First, they are very lean meats which is great if you’re watching your calories, but no fat equals no flavor! Also, this lack of fat usually turns into very dry meat. However, this is a total exception! These little meat loaves were flavorful and moist and believe it or not very healthy for you! This is due to the sauteed vegetables that I added in with the meat before I baked them in the oven. I love being able to add in extra nutrients to my meals! It makes me feel good about eating dinner! I don’t have to feel any guilt whatsoever!
Individual Turkey & Vegetable Meatloaves!
Anyways, these little babies were very filling and satisfying not to mention delicious leftovers. My 11 month old couldn’t get enough! Baby approved! These were a hit at my house the other day, and probably will be a hit in yours! Give ’em a whirl!
