Turkey & Sage Meatloaf:

This is another awesome recipe from Megan Roberts!!! Thanks so much for sharing with us all Megan :)

Makes 4 generous or 6 smaller servings

2 x packs of Turkey mince, approx 325gms each. (from Countdown)
1 medium size red onion, finely diced
1 egg
2 heaped Tablespoons of almond meal & 1 heaped teaspoon of cumin
Lots of fresh finely chopped sage, a couple tablespoons worth.
Streaky Bacon to line your dish with.

I flattened out/rolled the strips of streaky bacon between 2 sheets of baking paper to make them thinner & wider, first of all to make it go further and second because I didn't want the bacon to totally overpower the turkey mince.
Line your dish with the bacon, then put the mince mix in, pushing it down so there's no holes anywhere.
Bake for an hour at 180degress.
When it was done, I flipped it out of the dish and put it back in the oven for 10mins so the bacon was on the outside and got some colour. (I wiped off any congealed stuff from the juices).

While the meatloaf is in the oven, you can prep & cook your cauliflower, and make your zucchini noodles & beans.
Chop up and cook the cauliflower iin some chicken stock, once cauli is cooked whiz it up in the blender with a knob of butter or a splash of cream & salt/pepper.  Toss the zucchini noodles in a non stick pan with a knob of butter, add finely chopped green spring onion near the end. Nuke the beans in the microwave.

This would also work well with chicken or pork mince.

Total came to $19.84 (using free range eggs & bacon).
(Turkey mince is $19.49kg - I used this price in my costings but I got the 2 packs of mince reduced to clear so it was about $5 cheaper for me).
