Once upon a time I had a blog with .blogspot.com at the end of it.
It was alright… I mean, I started my blog there, and it was all I had known. But then I started wondering about other sites. Daydreaming about being the master of my own domain. And it was exciting.
So I chose to take a risk and make the switch. Hours were spent googling and sorting through a myriad of “how-to’s”, and my keys tapped feverishly for what felt like an eternity. And then finally, with sleepy eyes and exhausted finger tips, I was done.
Unfortunately, around the time I made the switch, I also stopped blogging on my old desktop and started on my fancy new laptop. The trouble is… I deleted like… a lot of photos. So when I completed my switch from Blogger to WordPress, let’s just say, some things were lost along the way. Namely, the photos from my first, oh, 10 posts. Sweet, right?
So instead of leaving my poor first few posts to be sad and photo-less, I’ve decided I’m going to slowly redo all the recipes that were robbed of their visual glory.
This is my first one. (If you do click back to read the original post, you should know it’s kind of a horrific story. You’ve been warned.)
It is honestly one of my favorite recipes, and a go-to when I have ground turkey and am not sure what to do with it. It’s the most tender and moist meatloaf I’ve ever had, and Brandon requests it at least once every two weeks. I’ve also tweaked it and made it better (if I do say so myself) since then, so without further ado….
Parmesan Turkey Meatloaf
Cook/Prep time: 1hr
1 1/2 lbs ground turkey (93% lean)
1/2 small yellow onion
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3/4 cup grated low-fat Parmesan
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. paprika
Preheat oven to 400° . Add turkey to a large mixing bowl and and grate onion right over top of it, capturing all the juices. Mix the rest of the ingredients together and shape into about an 8″ loaf. Place loaf in the middle of a pan or baking sheet, rather than molding it into a loaf pan (this actually works better, don’t know why, but it does!)
Bake for about 35-40 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165°. Place on cutting board and let sit for about 15 minutes before slicing.
In other exciting news, lookie what I made!
Sweet cowl, right? I started knitting again as a nice little stress-release, and I am like a machine. I whipped this little number up in about a day and a half, and I have a whole list of other things I want to make. It’s also a great excuse for when your husband walks in while you’re “watching” The Bachelor and he rolls his eyes. What, it’s just background noise….I didn’t even realize it was on….
At least Mac’s on my side.
