1 lbs extra lean ground turkey (such as Jennie-O)
1 box of stuffing, chicken or turkey flavor
2 egg whites
1 cup of water
8 oz can of mushrooms, or fresh mushrooms
1 clove of garlic, diced
1/2 cup of diced onions
16 oz tomato sauce (use the canned, not jarred)
Dash of salt and pepper
preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine ground turkey, stuffing, water and egg whites. Mix until thoroughly combined. Add in the diced garlic and the mushrooms. Mix. (Here is where you can get creative. Add in any kind of veggie. Carrots go well. I’ve even shredded an apple before and added to this concoction). Fold out turkey mixture into either a loaf pan or casserole dish. Bake for 30 – 40 minutes.
Add the can of tomato sauce to a sauce pan and heat. Add in the onions and stir. Add in a dash or salt and pepper. Allow meatloaf to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Top with the tomato sauce and serve.
