Protein Cake

Among the foods that you grow up thinking you hate Meatloaf seems to rise to the top. Brussel Sprouts are delish and liver aint so bad either. Cartoons give it all a bad wrap! The name also is a disgustingly literal, I feel we need to rename it to "Protein Cake". Meh, that's no better. How about "Burger Bread"? Its not really bread though....Burger Slices! That's it! Anyway, I made a nice batch of Greek Turkey Slices for dinner the other night and it was pretty amazing. The only thing I would add next time is sun dried tomatoes...

Greek Bulgar Turkey Burger Slices (Okay, its Meatloaf).
1 Pound Turkey meat
3 tablespoons chopped dill
1/2 cup reduced fat feta
2 cloves chopped garlic
1/4 cup bulgar
1 cup chopped red onion
1 egg
1 small can Spicy V8
Olive Oil
Dash of sugar
Salt Pepper

Step One: Preheat Oven to 350. Over medium heat saute chopped red onions and garlic until soft. Salt, Pepper and add sugar. Then add in bulger and toss over medium heat for an additional 5 minutes. Stir.

Step Two: Add mixture to ground turkey, then add in feta, V8, Dill and egg. Salt & Pepper.

Step Three: Bake covered for 45 minutes, then remove foil for the remaining 15 minutes. If its super watery and oily drain it a little but then after an hour let the loaf sit for 10m before eating so it soaks up the juices and doesn't dry out. I waited until the top was browned to eat.
