It's all about choices.
I kinda put a couple of ideas together and it came out really well!!!! Measurements are NOT exact...they don't have to all works just fine!!!!

1lb ground turkey
1/2lb. ground hamburger
2 eggs
3/4cup Panko flakes
4 cups of any greens (kale, chard, spinach) sauteed with garlic, cooled and chopped.
1 cup leftover black beans
1 cup leftover brown rice
1/2 cub sauteed chopped onions
8 shakes of Tabasco Chilpotle sauce (or any hot sauce)

Mush it all together, put in a loaf pan and let it sit for a while (10 mins to 1/2 hour or more). Cook in preheated oven at 350deg. for about 1 hour with a cover...then 15 mins without a cover.

HIGH protein, low fat.
Chopped carrots in it are good too...but finely chopped or scraped.

ALL of the ingredients are approx. if you don't have 1 cup use what you have. It doesn't matter!!! This is a good way to use up leftovers. Even husbands eat broccoli if it is hidden in a meatloaf.

Makes great sandwiches, meatballs....whatever.

Bon Appetit!

Sounds good! I like the idea of using grated carrot as a filler, I will do that next time I make meatloaf.
I use breadcrumbs (will try panko some day) that I soak in red wine for my meatloaf. It's Marcella Hazan's idea but it makes it tasty and moist....

I think even chopped cooked broccoli would work!!

I find Panko is so much lighter!!! I use it in crab or fish cakes too...and even if I splurge and 'bread' something!

Hmmmmsoaking in redwine.... YUM.

I love including grated veggies in meat loaf, its the only way I can get some family to eat any kind of vegetable. I've used carrots, broccoli, various kinds of beans, spinach, almost anything that's on hand and needs to be used.

Hetty, what a great idea soaking the crumbs in wine! I've gotta try that one!
