Healthy Turkey recipe at the Garden

We had hot weather, then yesterday I posted about having soup when the fall came. I think I jinxed summer. The dark clouds have rolled in, the wind has kicked up and it looks like we're in for a thunderstorm. I should have made the soup for dinner.

Alas, I have a nice healthy recipe for you. Meatloaf made healthy!
Turkey Meatloaf (10 4 oz servings)
2 lbs ground turkey
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
ground pepper to taste
1 package Lipton dry onion soup mix
3/4 bottle Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce
5 Keebler Crackers crushed
Mix together and form into a oblong and place in loaf pan.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Add 1/4 bottle to the top of the loaf and back another 15 to 30 minutes on 400.

As with most light meat, serve with a soft white wine. It's not spicy so it wouldn't be good with a sweet wine.
Enjoy!

Guess I'm a little old fashion in that turkey should only be eaten in it's original form, preferrable at Thanksgiving.

Ground turkey is awesome. Our tacos are made with turkey. I make whatever I can with turkey. Sometimes I substitute ground beef with bison though, that's always an option. Mmmm... I bet this meatloaf would be good with bison also. I'll have to try!

Or ground venison but don't forget to mix in a little pork since venison is very lean

You and my son would get along great. Maybe I'll interview him on hunting and recipes. I should post some of my son-in-law's recipes. He was a chef in another life I swear!
