If you are anything like me you bought a few bags of Tortilla Chips and a jar of Salsa to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but also like me you didn’t use the entire jar of salsa. So there it sits in the refrigerator until the next time you want to dip in a tortilla chip … which is no time soon.
I kept pushing that jar of salsa from one side of a shelf in the refrigerator to the other until I realized that I could probably use it to make a meatloaf or even turkey burgers instead of throwing it away.
Using the following ingredients I decided to make enough meatloaf to last two days because I had a meeting the next day after work and wouldn’t get home until late.
- 3 pound package of Jennie-O Ground Turkey
- 1 – 1/2 cups salsa
- 1 – 1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 – 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 Package of Taco Seasoning
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- In a large bowl, mix the ground turkey, salsa, bread crumbs, cheese, eggs, and seasoning package. Transfer to a 5×9 inch loaf pan.
- Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, or to a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees F (72 degrees C).
I also made a pot of Kale which is one of my favorite veggies to serve with any meal. To the boiling water I added one bunch of kale, Apple Cider Vinegar, chopped onions and a few sprinkles of white sugar.
Every time I make meatloaf, I think about Ralphie, the kid from “A Christmas Story” remember when he complains about this all too often served meal – meatloaf meatloaf beetloaf!
What is your favorite way to cook meatloaf?

Hello friends, I hope all is well is your world this wonderful Thanksgiving week. As most of you know, hubby is battling small intestinal cancer and has been undergoing chemo since June.
Today he is receiving treatment number 10 of 12, and it really wipes him out for the rest of the week, therefore, this year our Thanksgiving meal will be prepared for just he, our two sons and myself no other family members or friends.
Staying positive during this time and keeping the day stress free is the goal and thanks to my friends over at Jennie-O, it will be with this No Thaw ~ Oven Ready ~ From Freezer to Oven Whole Turkey with a Gravy Packet.
I am not unfamiliar with this Jennie-O Turkey as I prepared one last Thanksgiving, which you may remember I stated it was one of the best turkey dinners that I had made in recent memory.
In addition to having the turkey I will also be preparing kale and sweet potatoes which I received from The Help Ourselves Project which is a non-profit organization currently involved in community-based initiatives ranging from food distribution to West African based out of Philadelphia, PA. Of course there will also be stuffing, hot rolls, shrimp and Marie Callender’s Deep Dish Apple Pie for dessert!
The instructions for cooking a Jennie-O Whole Turkey is easy, breezy:
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees and remove turkey from outer bag, leaving it in the roasting bag
- Cut 6 – 1/2 inch slits into the cooking bag, and pull up and away from turkey
- Place in oven to roast until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees in the breast and 180 degrees in the thigh, there is also a Pop-Up Timer, but it take approximately 4 hours to cook
- Let the turkey rest for 15 minutes then cut open roasting bag, be careful allowing the steam to escape
- Prepare the gravy
No matter what brand or how you prepare your turkey, there will always be leftovers so if you need any ideas for your turkey leftovers, make sure to check out the www.jennieo.com website.
Happy Thanksgiving my friends!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
As a family we don’t eat pork nor a lot of red meat so most of the time my meals are made with either chicken or turkey. Before becoming a member of the JENNIE-O Switch Circle, I had always purchased Jennie-O bacon and breakfast sausage which my son loves and I use the ground turkey in my lasagna and tacos.
This partnership is perfect because now when I receive coupons and merchandise from Jennie-O, it gives me an opportunity to try new recipes and then share them with you.
Today’s Friday Foodie Feature is
Spinach & Feta Cheese Frittatas with Turkey Bacon
- 1 package #JennieO Turkey Bacon
- 7 eggs
- 1 cup fresh spinach chopped
- 1/2 cup onions chopped
- 1/3 cup Feta Cheese
- 1/3 cup milk
- pepper to taste
- cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cold skillet with cooking spray then prepare JennieO Turkey bacon according to package instructions and set aside.
Rinse and remove stems from spinach leaves, chop them and 1/2 of the onion into bite size pieces
Saute both in same skillet used to cook bacon until spinach is wilted
Whip eggs, feta cheese, milk and pepper before adding spinach, onions and bacon. Cut bacon into bite size pieces, I use kitchen shears to make the job easier.
Because we drink Ricemilk I recently starting cooking with it, and find that foods tastes just as good if not better than when made with whole milk.
Spray muffin pan with cooking spray to prevent sticking then pour or spoon mixture into each cup approximately 2/3 full.
Bake 20 minutes, then watch out because they smell wonderful and my son couldn’t wait to try them!
Grab a cup of coffee or tea then sit back, relax to enjoy a leisurely breakfast or an afternoon snack.
What I like about this recipe is that I can make the Frittatas the night before, then hubby and the boys can warm them up the next morning in the toaster oven.
