This is a general recipe I throw together: (adapted from IP cookbook)
1.25 lbs lean ground turkey or ground beef
2 cups finely chopped bell peppers (I use red & yellow in food processor)
1 fennel bulb finely chopped
1 cup chopped green onions
1/4c WF Ketchup
3 egg whites
3/4 bag of IP Southwest Cheese Curls - crushed
1 TBS horseradish (optional)
1 tsp mustard powder (I use a squirt of mustard)
t TBS onion powder
Preheat oven to 400
in a saucepan, heat the peppers & fennel till slightly soft, then add green onions. Cook for another minute. Let cool, then add to ground meat. Add rest of ingredients. Mix well.
Line a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with tin foil. Spray lightly with Pam. Shape the meatloaf on the sheet. Sometimes I will divide it into 4 servings (I'll measure the portions to make sure they're mostly the same).
Cook till done. (approx 30 min) Note: the "loaf" doesn't stick together as well as traditional meatloaf and it's really moist. Don't overcook. I don't make mine very thicků mostly on the long side, so it cooks thru in 30 minutes. Really good and refrigerates well.
I'll double the recipe so I have for the week. If I only make 1, my family eats all of it. I count each portion as 6-7 oz protein and about 1 cup cooked veggies.
