I'm always looking for good ways to help me keep up with my portion control. Intuitive eating is what I'm after, but realistically, I still need some outside help too. It's why you will notice a lot of what I eat is small sizes. So, these little portion sized meat loaves fit this category. Not only were they just the right size, but so good! I subbed ground turkey for ground beef, bringing down calories significantly, but not affecting flavor. Win, Win.
Here's how I made mine. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut bell peppers as shown below.
For the filling:
1 pound ground turkey. I used 93/7, you will need a little extra fat for flavor in meatloaves. 2 teaspoons honey 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 egg ¼ cup parmesan ¼ cup almond flour 1 ½ teaspoon salt 1 black pepper 2 teaspoons minced garlic 1 teaspoon tomato paste
Fill bell pepper cups with ground turkey mix.
Top with a mix of ketchup and honey. I used about ½ cup ketchup to 2 teaspoons honey
Bake for 20-25 minutes, then top with a little bit of low fat mozzerella cheese and broil for a pretty golden brown color. Done! Quick and healthy!
We served the meatloaf with shoestring curly fries (loving my spiralizer!!) , a spicy ketchup,and salad.
