Turkey Meatloaf Sandwich - 249 Calorie Bento

Hubbie loves Turkey Meatloaf and Turkey Meatballs. And meatloaf is so easy to make and store! I find turkey is basically lacking in taste - so seasonings come in mighty handy!

Bento Content:
  • Turkey Meatloaf Sandwich (160)
  • Organic Light String Cheese (60)
  • Grape Tomatoes (12)
  • Celery (5)
  • Carrot Flowers (12)

Total Bento : 249 calories


TURKEY MEATLOAF (yields 6 servings)

1 lb. Lean Turkey

4 Tbsp. No-Salt Ketchup

1/3 cup Plain fine Bread Crumbs

4 Tbsp Red Pepper Spread with Eggplant and Garlic (Trader Joe's)

1/2 Tbsp Black Pepper

1 Egg - beaten

1/2 cup minced Onion

1 tsp. Garlic Powder

Oil spray

Mix 1 tbsp each of Ketchup and Red Pepper Spread - set aside.

Combine and mix rest of ingredients well with a fork - as not to squish it too much.

Lightly spray an oven-safe pan with oil. Distribute meat mixture on pan.Cover with aluminum paper and bake in 350 deg Fahrenheit for approx. 20 minutes.

Uncover, and you will notice juices coming from the meatloaf. Carefully, drain the juices onto the ketchup and pepper spread mixture you set aside.Combine well and spread on top of meatloaf.

Put back in oven, uncovered, until cooked through and sort of crusty on top - approx. 15-20 minutes.
