Sometimes, I just don’t want to think or measure or worry about dinner. On those days, I use things like pre-made soups, spices mixes or even precut veggies from the grocery store. Tonight it was a package of dry onion soup mix and a can of French onion soup that saved the day. Keeping things like this in the pantry make it easier on the nights I don’t want to worry about dinner.
Who am I kidding? I always worry about dinner! ;~P
The best thing about this meal was the toddler’s reaction when he took his first bite, “Mmmm Mmmm, this is good!” Coming from a toddler who is getting pickier and pickier by the day, it was the best compliment I could have received. And of course the husband liked it too, he had 3 separate things on his plate!
- 12 oz Extra Lean Ground Turkey (99% is best)
- ½ cup (40g) Quick Oats
- 1 Package Dry Onion Soup Mix
- 2 egg whites
- 1 Can French Onion Soup (like Progresso)
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 tbsp Whole Wheat Flour (or other thickener)
- A thin slice of onion or 2 for garnish on top of the loaf (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the ground turkey, oatmeal, dry soup mix and egg whites together and form into a loaf.
In a bowl, whisk the French onion soup, Worcestershire Sauce and flour.
Place the loaf in a roasting pan, top with sliced onions and pour soup mixture over the loaf leaving the top exposed.
Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for about an hour. The internal temperature should be 160 degrees when finished.
Once finished use the French onion soup as gravy for noodles or mashed potatoes. I served mine with whole-wheat egg noodles and peas. The whole meal was a hit!
