Lean Turkey Meatloaf & Sweet Potato ~Crock Pot~

Lean Turkey Meatloaf with side Sweet Potato, reading my Classic French Cookbook....... some inspiration & time for some new recipes, maybe Coq Au Vin or Beef Bourguignon (my rendition of course). Anyway, this is a great recipe I put together early this morning then I was off to work while my dinner was slowly cooking! My Slow Cooker always comes in handy for a busy day of training clients.

I know the last thing I want to do when I get home is start my dinner from scratch or not have a plan. Try this recipe and of course you can add anything you like to it, like mushrooms, fresh spinach or tomato sauce inside & on top.

20.8 oz of Lean Ground Turkey
1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1 Fresh Grated Carrot
Low-Sodium Soy Sauce (to taste)
1/3 Cup Egg Whites or 2 Large Whole Eggs
Garlic Powder to taste
Fresh Chopped Parsley
1 Large Sweet Potato (on side)

Photo is before cooking. The meatloaf does brown in the slow cooker and the potatoes do also!

Mix all ingredients, spray slow cooker with Olive Oil mist or Pam, shape meatloaf, wash and cube sweet potato place along sides, then turn on your slow cooker to either low heat or high depending on how long you want it to take. High heat is a few hours. Bon Appétit!

The recipe looks so good! I tried it with the spinach, I didn't like it. I am going to start using my slow cooker soon!

Great idea! I never thought of doing meatloaf in the crockpot.:) Looks fantastic!

Thanks everyone! Des I made the turkey meatloaf from cooking light magazine this summer and I did not like it at all. The recipe was two boxes frozen spinach too much of the vegetables I thought. This one I put together is much better and just enough with the grated carrot. I didn't want the vegetables to be overpowering. The oats instead of breadcrumbs too! Try it out! Truly a "Power Meal". Great left over too!

Turkey mince, is under used over here. It is full of flavour, and much healthier than a cheap beef mince for example. I like the idea of using Oats inside the mix.

I often use oats as a coating in lieu of breadcrumbs. Things such as mackerel fillets, are devine with an oat crumb coating.

Sweet potato is a highly nutritious and an alternative for food for their valuable contents of carbohydrate, protein and carotene, which are necessary for normal development and even for the sexual development too, believe it or not. Sweet potato is really helpful for welfare and our body.
