It just doesn’t get much more comforting than this delectable, nicely seasoned Beef ’n’ Turkey Meat Loaf from Fern Nead of Florence, Kentucky. With two kinds of meat and shredded potato, it’s an old-fashioned entree with a healthy touch.
Pair it with sassy Spicy Carrot Coins, a specialty from Nancy Zimmerman’s kitchen in Cape May Court House, New Jersey. “This colorful side dish is a great, low-fat way to boost beta-carotene and vitamin A in your diet,” Nancy notes.
- Mashed potatoes
- Mixed greens salad
- For an extra treat, Fern Nead sometimes tops her meat loaf with narrow strips of turkey bacon.
- Line the meat loaf’s baking pan with foil to make busy weeknight cleanup a snap!
- Garnish the carrot coins with cinnamon sticks or lemon-peel twists for a fancier presentation.
