  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 tbsp parsley

Directions

Lean Turkey Meatloaf: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Mix all ingredients in large mixing bowl. Use your hands to completely combine everything. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Place all of the meat mixture on the cookie sheet, and shape it into a long rectangle. Pat it down to make sure that it will hold its shape while baking. Cover the meatloaf with aluminum foil, and bake, covered for approximately 35-45 minutes.

Mashed Potatoes: Mash boiled potatoes in a large pot, add in the milk, salt, dill, pepper, paprika and garlic powder. Mash and mix the mashed potatoes until desired consistency. Enjoy!
