Whether or not you are a football fan… you are most likely a fan of at least one aspect of “The Big Game”….
One of the home-cooked, comfort food meals that I often think of when I think of ‘ketchup’ is…
It may not be the fanciest, prettiest meal that you’ve ever eaten… but it’s satisfying and comforting. (sigh)
I had ground turkey on hand and instead of going out to buy ground beef to make meatloaf, I felt inspired to re-create this go-to comfort food in a way that was both hearty and healthy…. AND, of course, TASTY!!
Along with the ground turkey, I used oatmeal, chopped red bell pepper, and lentils to “beef” up this meatloaf!!
You will be enjoying a SUPER ‘good-for-you’ meal that is also comforting and full of flavor at the same time!!!
If you’re not excited, well… YOU SHOULD BE!!
At first I dismissed the idea of “J is for Jam” altogether because I thought there would be no “dinner” recipes made with jam…
Only desserts came to mind.
Then I realized that jams would make a FANTASTIC glaze for meats… especially chicken or pork. But more on that in another post.
A “jam” that I definitely did not expect but ended up LOVING is the subject of today’s post: TOMATO Jam!
Throw out any pre-conceived notions that just entered your head… you NEED to try this!
Tomatoes are a fruit after all… why not make jam out of them?
This is amazing on a burger!!! Take a look…
I had been wanting to try stuffed peppers for quite some time and I finally had the chance to do it! This was the first time I made them and it won’t be the last. And… the stuffing included Feta… PERFECT!
I made some adjustments to a Greek Salad recipe I found and served it alongside the stuffed peppers… YUMMY!
Making this meal is a bit of a process, but if you do as much as you can ahead of time it’s MUCH easier and not so stressful! Still, leave yourself some time to get it all on the table… it’s not a quick fix but it’s a fantastic end result!
STICK WITH ME ON THIS ONE… Let’s get started!
