It’s always smart to think ahead when you are cooking at home, and that means to make the most of whatever you’re preparing. We were able to stretch our meal into two different dinners (think Robin Miller from the Food Network). Last night, we prepared tomatoes stuffed with ground turkey and fresh vegetables (carrots, celery, garlic, shallots, green onion, and to season it we threw in Lipton Onion Powder, Worcestershire sauce, & pepper). In addition, we made a quick pasta dish with the tomato “insides” that I scooped out. Just make sure the stuffing is all cooked through before serving!
Since we didn’t use the entire ground turkey mixture, it was saved in the fridge for tonight’s meal - meatloaf. We added bread crumbs as a binder which also maintains its moisture. We baked it in the oven and created a ketchup/worcestershire sauce to spread on top of the meatloaf. It gives it a different taste and texture compared to last night’s stuffed tomatoes.
To be honest, after two days of this stuff, I’m so ready to eat something different! Any suggestions?
