Easy Taco Loaf

Since my last meatloaf turned out so well, I decided to try something new again. I did this recipe a couple months ago and Peter has requested it every week or two since then. And as always it’s super easy, just get:

1/2 packet taco seasoning

1 egg

1 pound ground turkey

1/2 cup baby oatmeal (if you aren’t trying to get rid of a bunch of baby oatmeal, substitute bread crumbs and you’ll be just fine.)

1/3 cup of salsa

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Then shape into a loaf and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. When 10 minutes remains, pour the salsa on.




Easy Sweet Ranch Meatloaf

In the 6 1/2 years Peter and I have been together, this is just the 2nd time I’ve made meatloaf. Having no idea where the recipe I used 6 years ago is… I tried something new. And if turned out much better than expected! All you need is:

1 packet ranch dressing mix

1 egg

1 pound ground beef

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup ketchup

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Then shape into a loaf and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. While it’s cooking, mix ketchup and brown sugar. When the loaf is half cooked (after 20-25 minutes) pour the ketchup glaze on top.

I’m so excited by how well this turned out, and my husband was even more excited. I can say without a doubt, it will not be 6 years before I make meatloaf again!
