Tonights Dinner

Turkey Meatloaf and Cheesy Potatoes

Turkey Meatloaf:
1 lb. ground turkey breast
1/2 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
3 garlic cloves -chopped
1 medium/large onion-chopped
1/2 green pepper-chopped
One egg
1 cup tomato sauce
Worcestershire sauce
basil (1 tsp.)
salt (1/2-1/4 tsp.)
pepper (1/2-1/4 tsp.)
2 tbs. olive oil
1/4 cup ketchup (save for the top)

Preheat oven to 350(f) degrees
Heat olive oil over medium heat with onions, green peppers and garlic. Cook until tender. Place onions, garlic and green peppers in a large bowl after they are cooked and let sit until they are cool enough to handle. Put the remaining ingredients in the bowl and mix well, careful not to over work the meat. Spray a loaf or pie pan with non-stick spray. Place mixture in the pan and cook for 45-55 minutes. Spread ketchup on top of your meatloaf when done and place in the oven for 5 more minutes.
The whole loaf has 18 points. I divided mine into 5 servings at 4 points each.


Quick Cheesy Potatoes:
4 medium russet potatoes-cubed
2 shallots (or medium onion)-chopped
4oz. can of chopped green chile's
1/4 cup green peppers- diced
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 tbs. Olivio (or your choice of butter)
for taste: garlic powder, salt, pepper, and hot sauce
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cook your potatoes in the microwave for about 8 minutes or until tender (you can boil them as well). While your potatoes are cooking, cook your onions, and green peppers over medium heat until tender. When the potatoes are done place them in a spray pan (about 8x8) and top with melted butter, chile's, green pepper and onion mixture, and a dash or two of hot sauce. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper and then with your cheese. Cook for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are slightly brown.
14 points for the whole dish. I split this into 4 servings at 3.5 points per serving.
This could be even lower in points with some sort of butter spray instead of butter, and reduced fat cheddar.

Total points for dinner: 8.5
