This is a meatloaf!
Yup, that is Meatloaf from his band.
"You took the words right out of my mouth..."
Which leads me to remember that my sister is going to a concert this weekend to see another Old school band...
Tim and I actually saw them in concert back in the late 70's or early 80's.
*cue lots of screaming, yelling, whistling, Angie up on Tim's shoulders, Tim without a shirt on, Angie being 20 lbs less (SHUT UP!!!!!!!!) sweaty people everywhere, Angie feeling like she'll get crushed but a least she can see the stage..................
Earth to Angie........
SNAP OUT OF IT!
Oh anyway, in honor of my sister who completed six weeks of boot camp today with crazeeee results (go JoJo, it's your birthday, gonna party, like it's your birthday), here's the Cheap Trick video from their gig in Budokan.

Oh guess what just happened at this point!!

Dis look good, yes????
Oil up yer pan or pans...remember, I tripled the recipe.
Spread the turkey mixture in the pan/s...
Mmmmm, spread the ketchup and mustard mixture on top.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, just until the loaf register 160 degrees.
Oh my goodness, doesn't this look fantastic??
It sure smells fantastic!!
And bits of the turkey bacon??
And the colorful carrots?
It's not a huge flavor explosion, like if it was made with beef or sausage.
No, this is a mellow, flavorful super healthy yet moist meatloaf.

Combine the ketchup and mustard in a small bowl and set aside. Mix together the ground turkey, breadcrumbs, milk, cheese, turkey bacon, bread and egg white in a large bowl.
Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, onions, garlic and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are very tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the zucchini until softened, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
Toss the vegetables and ground meat together gently to combine, and then stir in most of the ketchup and mustard. Shape the meatloaf into the pan and spread the remaining ketchup and mustard on top. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf registers 160 degrees F, 30 to 40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces.
Okay guys and gals, that's all I got for now!!!
You really should try this Turkey Meatloaf just once.
One of the loaves I made WITHOUT mushrooms cuz of Tim and that was okay too but I much preferred the loaf with the mushrooms!
Have a good Friday guys and we'll talk at ya soon!
