Turkey Mini Meatloaves

The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (95 votes)

While turkey can too often lend a depressingly gummy texture to meatloaf, we've improved on the standard by adding couscous, zucchini and lots of spices. The best thing of all? They cook in half the time of a full-size meatloaf and you can have leftovers for a sandwich the next day on toasted whole-grain bread.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Love it! Simple, D-Lish, and my hubby is eating zucchini. It is one of the moistest meatloafs I have ever had! "
