I made this zesty little paleo turkey meatloaf last night for dinner. I’ve never been a big meatloaf person, just because they’re all pretty much a hunk of meat on a plate – kinda boring…
I’m guessing most of us grew up with mom’s meatloaf. I can still remember mine grabbing the oven mitts and proudly bringing hers to the table all hot and bubbly and smelling so good. Home-cooked comfort food for sure.
Well I decided to make a true paleo meatloaf, and kick mom’s version up a notch or two.
I chose ground turkey for mine, but you can also use ground beef.
Then I added more veggies and spices because that’s what paleo peeps do, right?
This one has spinach, sautéed onions, garlic, some bell peppers, and extra seasonings…and it’s smothered in my Tangy Paleo BBQ Sauce. (You can use whatever BBQ sauce you prefer, or just cover it with ketchup.)
This, my paleo friends, is a meatloaf!
Lots of flavor and good stuff inside…it’s not just a hunk of meat now! I have officially become a lover of meatloaf!
Hey, why not invite mom over and let her try it! Maybe she’ll like it better than her own. Yeah OK, maybe that’s a stretch….
This is such a great famly meal, so easy and nutritious. Just add a yummy side dish and you’re all set.
The best part is you’ll probably have leftovers…and that equals a quick paleo lunch the next day. That makes us happy, right?
Try this one…I know you’ll love it, and so will your family. :)
Happy paleo cooking!
