Default Turkey Meatloaf - 6 Servings

Celery - finely diced (1 cup)
Onion - finely diced (1 cup)
Cremini mushroom - finely chopped (4 cups) - you can use white mushrooms if you prefer
Egg - 1 large - beaten slightly
Ground Extra-Lean Turkey - 24 oz
Porcini - 1/3 oz - if you can't find porcini you can use any dried mushroom you can find. Grind it up into powder by using a coffee grinder
Whole Wheat Bread slice - 1 - bake in oven until dry then crush into breadcrumbs
Tomato Paste - 2 tbsp
Worchestershire Sauce - 1 tbsp
Thyme - Fresh (2 tsp) or dried (1 tsp)
Flavo magic and pepper to taste

Directions:
Soften celery and onion in a pan. You can spray the pan with PAM if you like, but there is enough moisture in the celery and onion to allow them to sweat naturally. After 2-3 mins add the mushrooms and cook until almost all the mositure from the mushrooms has evaporated. Put the mushroom mixture into a mixing bowl and allow to cool for 10 mins.
Once cool, add in the egg, then the remaining ingredients, saving the turkey to add last.
Bake at 375 degrees for 40 mins or until done.
To help with portion control, I baked my meatloaf in a 6-cup muffic tray. The mix divides up perfectly!

Each serving:
1 Protien
1 Vegetable
1/6 Starch

I am not sure if I am missing anything else. If I did, please let me know! Also, let me know what you think...
