The Best Turkey Meatloaf and Roasted Vegetables
Are you ready for the best turkey meatloaf and roasted vegetables recipe ever? This meal makes for a healthy dinner or is great for healthy meal planning. Bring on the deliciousness (and there’s a big giveaway!)
As the weather gets colder and colder here in Wisconsin, I find myself craving foods that are colorful and comforting, but also healthy. This turkey meatloaf and roasted vegetables is just that – the colors from the beautiful roasted veggies just make one think of sunnier days, and the turkey meatloaf is so good and a very nostalgic food. The vegetables in this recipe are from my weekly Door to Door Organics order because their services are incredible (delivered organic groceries save me SO much time and the products are so good!)
Growing up I don’t think we ever ate ground turkey – was that even a thing in the 90s? Now I love using it as a healthy dinner ingredient. I’m totally in love with making meatloaf recipes (as you can tell from my previous posts on mini cheese stuffed meatloaf cups or this mushroom and Jarlsberg meatloaf) but have never shared my tried and true plain ‘ole meatloaf recipe that I make. It’s totally not boring, I promise!
In fact, you guys already know how I feel about the term ‘the best’…I shared when I posted the best salted caramel chocolate chip cookies… I only use the term when it is something I’ve made countless times and it is truly delicious, deserving of the title THE BEST. And this turkey meatloaf and roasted vegetables, man-oh-man, it is SO good and truly the best turkey meatloaf recipe!
A funny side note here – I’m in the midst of finishing up my cookbook, right? Well I was emailing with my editor and she mentioned that she noticed I say recipes are my “go-to” a lot, that made me laugh, I told her it’s TRUE, certain recipes are my go-to ones. This meatloaf and roasted veggies would definitely fall in that category.
Also you guys also know I’m all about meal planning and eating healthier, right? So I’m sharing a photo of this weeks’ meal planning-in the photo you see 1 recipe of this meatloaf and roasted vegetables divided and then 1 recipe of this slow cooker salsa chicken and quinoa. Both recipes use ingredients purchased from Door to Door Organics, so I’m doing a huge giveaway! One lucky winner will win a $150 gift certificate to Door to Door Organics AND all the cool stuff in the picture below (two chocolate bars, a coffee mug, water bottle, lip balm and other Door to Door Organics goodies). To enter simply comment telling me what is your favorite nostalgic dish and enter the widget – one winner will be chosen February 28th.
