Amy's Hot Meat:
1 pound ground turkey
1 medium chopped/diced onion
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup ketchup
1 cup mexican blend shredded cheese
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup honey mustard dressing
Bake @ 350, until thermometer reaches 160 degrees. It took 35 minutes with my mini-loaf pan.
Also a good meatloaf recipe is one Nicole shared with me last year, VERY good and moist! Here it is:
1 1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 slices bread, finely chopped (1 1/2 cups, lightly packed)
1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
1/2 cup ketchup, chili sauce or barbecue sauce
I used ground turkey and used 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce it made it really moist! cooked it for just about 60 minutes, Also didn't do bread did bread crumbs.
1.Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix all ingredients except ketchup. Spread mixture in ungreased 9x5-inch loaf pan, or shape into 9x5-inch loaf in ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Spread ketchup over top.
2.Insert meat thermometer so tip is in center of loaf. Bake uncovered 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until thermometer reads at least 160°F. Drain meat loaf.
3.Let stand 5 minutes; remove from pan.
Now for the advice I need. As Rick's surgery is quickly approaching, I am trying to think back to some post-op liquid/mushy recipes that I enjoyed. Does anyone have any favorites they wouldn't mind sharing? You can post them as a comment or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I remember one of my favorites being a ricotta cheese bake, which consisted of:
1/4 C Ricotta cheese
1/4 C Fat free cottage cheese
1 ounce mozzarella cheese
dash salt/pepper and parm cheese
1/2 C Marinara
Mix all ingredients in your magic bullet or other blender devise. Pour into personal size casserole dish; heat in oven at 400 for 15 minutes or microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds.
Thanks so much!!! xxoo
