No More 'Mallows!' Blogger Recipe Contest: Sweet Potato BBQ Turkey Meatloaf
Sweet Potato BBQ Turkey Meatloaf
I have fun taking classic comfort food dishes and making them more figure-friendly. In this recipe I use a lean ground turkey paired with sweet potato puree for a flavorful and tender meatloaf!
Prep: 25 minutes
Cook: 1 hour 10 minutes
1 small sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1 lb. ground turkey
1 egg yolk
1 very small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 T. barbeque sauce
2 T. ketchup
1 slice whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 c. plain bread crumbs
½ T. pepper
½ T. salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 1 quart baking dish. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add sweet potato. Cook until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and blend until smooth.
In a large bowl combine ground turkey, yolk, onion, garlic, barbeque sauce, ketchup, mustard, both bread crumbs, pepper and salt. Mix very well until evenly distributed.
Place into baking dish and using your hands mold into a loaf. Bake in preheated oven for about 1 hour and 10 minutes, until golden and cooked through.
