In my quest for eating healthier I baked us some delious Mini Turkey Loaves  for supper the other night.  These are FAB ulous!  Moist and filled with lovely flavours.

 They don't photograph very well, but don't let the bad pictures put you off.  These little loaves are delicious and go down a real treat!  They are quick and easy to make as well and cook in a fraction of the time as a whole large meatloaf.

Plus they are a great way to get some vegetables into the family without their knowing it.  Courgettes (zucchini), onions and red bell peppers.  I use all three for extra flavor and moistness.

There is also a bit of a punch from smoked paprika!  And of course there is BBQ sauce used both in the meat mixture and as a finishing glaze.

And a bit of bacon laid on top for some extra smokiness and well . . .  meatloaf always tastes better with bacon don't you think?   I served them with mashed sweet potatoes and broccoli for a really colourful and delicious meal which went down a real treat.  Nobody will even know they are eating healthy stuff.
