Meatloaf Meatballs Meal

Serves: 6

Ingredients:
Everything you need to make a double batch of my Potato Wedges recipe
Everything you need to make my Meatloaf Meatballs recipe
Your favorite bagged salad kit

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Follow the directions to make my Potato Wedges recipe and put them in the oven. Except for the cooking temperature, follow the directions to make my Meatloaf Meatballs recipe. Approximately 20 to 30 minutes before the potatoes are done, put the meatballs in the oven, too. They can bake at the same temperature as the potatoes instead of 350 degrees. When the potatoes are golden brown and the meatballs are cooked through, serve with a side salad.

What I Eat

Turkey Gravy

Serves: 1

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup organic free range chicken broth
cooked shredded rotisserie turkey breast, to taste
1 serving mashed potatoes*

Directions:
Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Stir in flour. Add broth. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally so the gravy isn’t lumpy. When thick, turn heat down to low. Add the amount of cooked turkey you like. Stir to coat. When heated through, serve over mashed potatoes. *For a mashed potato recipe, go to my ‘Roast, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and Cooked Carrots’ recipe (the ingredients make enough to serve 4, so make 1/4 of the recipe for 1 serving) and omit the garlic powder. If you don’t add a lot of turkey to the gravy, have with 1 serving (according to the nutrition label) of milk. If you do add a lot of turkey to the gravy, have with a glass of water.
