FRENCH ONION TURKEY MEATLOAF OR French Onion Soup Turkey Meatloaf – ’cause all the flavors are in there.  Yes, they are. This takes a little longer because you do have to caramelize the onions, but it’s so, so worth it.  Just for the smell in your house alone!  You need two medium onions (about 1…

Might not be pretty…but it IS pretty good!

OLD-FASHIONED GLAZED MEATLOAF (First…let me apologize for the hunk ‘o meatloaf-on-a-plate.  Good grief.   I had served dinner to Hon and he ooed and awed over it so I then felt like I should have taken a photo so I could post the recipe.  That was all that was left.   Don’t worry.  It’s really,…

Just another turkey chili…or is it?

TURKEY QUINOA CHILI It’s not the same old, same old!  The addition of nutty, nutrient-rich quinoa, not only stretches the meat, in a budget-conscience time but spikes the protein grams, as well.   Add that to the zucchini, sweet orange bell pepper, and two kinds of beans ……it equals loads of flavor! Filling and hearty,…

Just another meatloaf recipe…ho hum. NOT.

CHILE TURKEY MEATLOAF (For some reason this photo makes it look dry.  It is SOOOOOO not.) Super-duper moist and flavorful – it’s my husbands favorite meatloaf EVER.  This was a half-hearted-throw-everything-in type meatloaf at the last minute for dinner but Hon raved about it so much I had to scramble to save a piece for…

Sí, señor! Sopa tacos!

LINDA’S FAMOUS TACO SOUP This is easily my most popular recipe!  (REVISED: Well, it used to be!!  The Quinoa Burgers and the Broccoli-Quinoa Casserole have FAR surpassed this one.  But it is still fab!) It’s quick, can be altered to fit whatever you have in your pantry at the moment…can be made vegetarian, garnished with anything,…

Need to hide some veggies?

ZUCCHINI MEATLOAF I grew a kiddo that wouldn’t eat anything green…and even this meatloaf might have been pushin’ it.  He was a super-duper veggie detective! I bet most kids would eat this up, though.  And the zucchini keeps the meatloaf very moist. (I’ve also made this with the ground mixed light/dark turkey….SUPER!) ~~~~   Vegetable…
