Hi fellow MFrs! I have a question for you. I had to run to Costco this AM for a couple of things (don't worry, non edible) we ran out of and while I was there I picked up a 4 pack of ground turkey. I figured I could use it to make the taco salad I've read about here on the boards, or burritos rolling up the filling in romaine and things like that. Well, then I started thinking about some of the "old" recipes my family likes for casseroles and so forth and how I could adapt them to be L&G. I've come up with a couple of ideas but I would like advice on making meatloaf. I plan to divide up the meat into the appropriate serving sizes and vacuum seal them and then I thought "Why not use either ramekins or mini loaf plans and make miniature meatloaf"? My question is what to use as a binder.

This would save me time and hopefully a little money. So, put your thiinking caps on and help me figure out what to do and TIA! PS I didn't sample a thing at Costco! PPS I also posted this on another thread. I hope that's not a "no no"..

Hey there! There are a few recipes in the Recipes forum that are for meatloaf. Here are a few to give you some ideas. To see them all, just search that forum for "meatloaf". Good luck!.

Looks like Parmesan might be a decent substitute (within reason!)...

How about Medifast oatmeal you would have to borrow from another meal but it would only probably take 1/3 pk per serving of the protein. I have always used regular oatmeal for traditional meatloaf. You could also use a little of the Medifast eggs...

Comment #2

You could also make bread from either COC or COB soup (1 pkt of soup, 1/4 cup eggbeaters, 1/4 tsp. baking powder, small amount of seasoning - Italian, dill weed, etc. - whatever sounds good to you; mix and microwave in bowl for 2-3 minutes. Voila - bread! You could then crumble this up and use it for your own personal meatloaf. Mix in a little Walden Farms 0 cal, 0 carb ketchup and maybe another tablespoon or two of eggbeaters (factoring the eggbeaters in as part of your lean, of course!) and you're on the verge of having meatloaf.

Once you have it perfected, be sure to share it with us!..

Or the Medifast snack crackers and some egg beaters..............but I think the Cream of soups would be great because they add some flavor too..

Edit: just reread your post and saw the "I would have to order the Medifast ones" sorry!..

Comment #4

Thanks everybody for the great ideas! I thought about using the oatmeal but because they're flavored I wasn't sure how it would work. Maybe Medifast should make a PLAIN oatmeal for just this purpose!..

Comment #5

Maple brown sugar oatmeal should work well for that as many bar-b-que and steak sauces are flavored with brown sugar...

Comment #6

Never thought of the maple brown sugar. You're right, it should work well. I'll keep you posted. Gonna try it tomorrow or Friday...

Comment #7

Another thing to think about.... is the ground turkey white meat or a mixture of dark and light? The caloric count is different for the two. No recipes to offer as I don't like the dryness and flavorlessness (is that a word? ) of ground turkey and I stick to 96/4 ground beef...

Hi all! Just wanted to tell all who responded to my query about meatloaf, that I made it tonight and it was actually very good and as my husband said: "real food"! Here's what I did for anyone interested:.

1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey (mine was 7% fat).

3 slices onion, minced.

1/4 cup egg beaters.

1 squirt ketchup (less than 1 tablespoon).

1 squirt mustard (Less than 1 TBSP).

1 tsp. horseradish.

2 TBSP parmesean.

1 TBSP meatloaf seasoning (which I will leave out next time as even small amount raised DH's blood sugar).

Mix thoroughly. Shape into 3 mini meatloaves and place in mini loaf pans that have been lightly sprayed with PAM or something similar. Bake at 375 for 45".

I weighed each meatloaf when they came out of the oven and I apparently eyeballed things well as DH and my meatloaf were 7 oz each and I made step son's slightly bigger..

My DH couldn't believe that the whole meatloaf was for him!..
