Bacon Topped Petite Turkey Meatloaf
Another delicious low calorie recipe.
I promised you all on Facebook that the recipes I shared would be healthy, low fat, low calorie and would taste good, I wouldn't share something that was bland or resembled a piece of cardboard. LOL
This one is also from Skinny Taste. I substituted the bacon with Turkey Bacon, I also used Homemade Breadcrumbs made from 45 calorie bread, so the it does cut down the calories a little more than the original recipe.
3/4 cup grated zucchini, all moisture squeezed dry with paper towel
2 tbsp onion, minced
2 tbsp diced red pepper
1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (use plain for dairy free)
1/4 cup Kansas City BBQ Sauce
1 large egg
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp kosher salt
1.3 lb raw 93% lean ground turkey
5 slices center cut bacon, cut in half
2 1/2 tbsp BBQ Sauce
Preheat the oven to 350°. Lightly spray a petite loaf pan with oil (if you don't have a petite loaf pan you could use a muffin tin).
In a large bowl, mix the zucchini, onion, red pepper, breadcrumbs, BBQ sauce, egg, paprika and salt. Add the turkey and combine until mixed through.
Create 5 equal loafs and place them into the loaf pan. Place the 2 bacon halves over each loaf
and top each with 1/2 tbsp additional BBQ sauce.
Bake about 25 minutes or until cooked through.
