Italian Meatloaf

Italian Meatloaf

When you’re ready for a hearty meal, nothing hits the spot like meatloaf. Specifically, Italian Meatloaf has been a go-to dish of mine since my college years and after I started P90X, I’ve found it fits in pretty well. Obviously, don’t eat this before a workout, but after at least an hour has passed, have at it :). I actually prefer to whip this up on my P90X off-day, but it all depends on your schedule. Here’s how I make mine:

Protein:
* 1.75 lbs of turkey breast, ground
* 2.5 tbs. chicken broth (make sure it’s fat free and doesn’t have a lot of salt)

Ingredients:
* 1/4 cup diced onions (green onions work well too)
* 2 tbs. minced garlic
* 1/3 cup breadcrumbs (sourdough’s my preference)
* 1/3 cup marinara sauce (again, low in fat and salt)
* 2 tbs. chopped basil (keep a couple unchopped)
* 2.5 tbs. chopped parsley

Preparation:
To get started, preheat your oven to at least 325 degrees. Toss the onions into the chicken broth until they start to color then mix in the garlic for a few more minutes. Once done, put them to the side and let them sit at room temperature. In a separate mixing bowl, toss in the onion with the turkey, marinara, parsley, chopped basil and breadcrumbs. Next, mix everything and shape them into the form of a loaf (or whatever comes to mind!). Place it on a regular pan and bake it for a good 40 minutes. Test the middle to make sure it’s cooked; if so, let it cool at room temperature for at least 15 minutes, dress it with a basil and voila…quick, delicious and leftovers for days, enjoy!
