3 For The Price of One

26 Feb

I am bringing you a three for one recipe post today.  It was brought to my attention that I inadvertently never posted my Mexican casserole recipe.  So without further ado here is the recipes for Mexican Casserole, Mexican Coleslaw, and Sweet Potato Meatloaf Bake:

Mexican Casserole


Ground Turkey 1.25 lb
1 Green Bell Pepper Diced
1 Medium Onion Diced
3 Cans of Rotel Tomatoes (drained)
2 Eggs
1.5 Cups of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 package of taco seasoning

Brown turkey with onions and bell peppers until meat is cooked and veggies are tender. Combine meat, veggies, drained rotel, eggs, 1 cup of the cheese and the taco seasoning in a bowl. Mix well. Pour into 9×9 brownie pan and top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

1 tbsp of Honey
1 tbsp of cumin
1 tsp of garlic powder
1/4 cup of olive oil

Sweet Potato Meatloaf Bake

Ground Turkey 1.25 lb
1 Green Bell Pepper Diced
1 Medium Onion Diced
2 Cans of Rotel Tomatoes (drained)
2 Eggs
3 Sweet Potatoes
1/4 cup of milk

Peel and chop sweet potatoes. Set aside. Put water on the stove to bring to a boil. While water is is heating combine raw turkey, onion, bell pepper, rotel, eggs and seasonings you would typically use with meatloaf (I use different stuff all the time so I am no help here). Once blended well, put mixture in 9×9 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. While meatloaf is in the oven, cook the potatoes until tender. Drain and mash with milk, salt, and pepper. Pour mashed sweet potatoes on top of meatloaf and return to oven for an additional 30 minutes.
