If you read my post on Strawberry Chipotle Chicken, you know I am in crisis mode. My favorite skinny jeans don’t fit…too much rich cooking and baking these past few months.
So I am back to clean, light and healthy eating…not forever of course, just until I can get back into my jeans.
I love using Jennie-O extra lean ground turkey…I use it in lightened Bolognese, turkey burgers. turkey chili and turkey meatloaf. I can lighten almost any traditional meat dish with turkey.
I was craving curry and found a great recipe for Curry Spiced Meatloaf. I had some wonderful rainbow chard that needed to be used…a fine chop, quick saute and into the loaf it went. I think this really helped keep the turkey moist.
The perfect topping was a tzatziki made with Fage zero to lighten it up even more. The cucumber mint added a cool counter to the hot curry I used.
Inspired by Taste of Home Curry Spiced Meatloaf.
Recipe Notes/Modifications: I used brown rice for the rolled oats, 1/2 bunch rainbow chard (sautéed) instead of carrots, no salt chicken broth for the milk and lean turkey breast for the beef. I baked these savoy little loafs in a muffin tin for portion control. Served with a salad, a dollop of tzatziki, it was just perfect.
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs or rolled oats
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 to 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
- In a large bowl, combine egg, milk, bread crumbs or oats, garlic, curry powder, cumin, salt, pepper, carrots and onion. Add ground beef; mix well. Pat meat mixture into an 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan or muffins tins. Bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until no pink remains.
Servings: 4 – 2 turkey “muffins” each.
