Meatloaf Mediterranean.jpg

Cooking once and eating twice saves lots of time in the kitchen and will keep you away from tempting take-out.  Meatloaf is a homey meal that reheats beautifully just place slices of meatloaf on a baking tray and reheat for 10 minutes at 350°F.

Ingredients Serves 4

Cooking spray
1 large red or white onion, diced
½ small eggplant, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 pound lean ground turkey or ground chicken
1 egg
½ teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 375°F.  Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Place over medium heat. Add the onion, eggplant, garlic, and tomato paste. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the eggplant softens.  Transfer to a bowl to cool 2 minutes. Add the ground meat, egg, thyme, oregano, and black pepper.  Mix well to distribute the spices evenly through the meat. Transfer to a one-pound loaf pan and bake 45 to 50 minutes, until the meatloaf begins to firm and is cooked through in the center. Serve immediately.
