"Its What's For Dinner"

Last April, for health reasons, I gave up all foods containing starch. This sent me on a quest for recipe ideas that would work for me, but could also be enjoyed by my family. There are many wonderful bloggers out there that got me started, but along the way I realized how easy it was to go into the kitchen see what I had available for meats and veggies and just go with it. My husband, mom and a few close friends have encouraged me to share these recipes. They are written down and starting to pile up, still unshared. With all the New Year's resolutions for dieting and exercise, it seems like an approriate time to start sharing.
While Jonathan was home he asked for Turkey Burgers. I had purchased some ground turkey, but we ran out of time before he had to be back at school for track practice. So last night I got around to making Turkey Burgers and this is what I came up with. We'll call them Mini Meatloaves because burgers gives the idea that you need a bun. Remember, we are striving for better nutrition here. No bun.....Please!
Mini Turkey Meatloaves
2 1/2 # ground turkey
1 egg
1/3 cup each of chopped onion, green pepper and red pepper
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
1 tsp marjoram
1 tsp salt
generous sprinkle of pepper
Mix well and shape loosely into 8 patties on a cookie sheet coated in olive oil. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. While these are baking, combine:
1/2 cup real mayo
1 to 2 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp basalmic vinegar
generous sprinkle of salt and pepper
Coat the top of each pattie with the sauce and bake until the sauce browns up a bit. Maybe 10 more minutes.
Great sides would be steamed broccoli, green leafy salad and fresh pineapple. Enjoy!
