HEALTHY LOW CARB Turkey Zucchini Meats Loaf filled with pepper jack and topped with mouth watering sauce EVER! Zucchini, zucchini, ZUCCHINI. It's taking over my entire life. I'm uncertain I mind a lot, but I could let you know that I'm getting sick of shredding the zucchini. I have a few more to consume but after that I don't believe you will see another zucchini recipe from me in quite sometime. My ideal arm literally hurts from zucchini shredding syndrome. Yes, it's officially a syndrome (in the AK book anyhow). I realize I've been doing various baked goods with zucchini so this time I needed to bring you something a little savory like this turkey zucchini meatloaf. I decided that adding some zucchini to a turkey meatloaf would not only be considered a great way to obtain my vegetables in, but also to add wetness (since I use lean turkey). And as if that wasn't more than enough, I just needed to throw in a little pepper jack in the middle because I'm all about just a little kick. It's funny, I in fact don't consider pepper jack to become spicy; my Mother used to provide jalapenos at nearly every meal therefore i think my tastebuds have modified to the main point where I can pour oodles of Sriracha on my meals without any impact. Not sure in the event that's a good thing or not? So, for all of you mamas around or food preppers that is a fantastic healthy recipe and makes terrific leftovers. I was chowing down onto it for a couple days with a nice sweet potato privately. The awesome sauce is well… AWESOME. It's nice but spicy and really adds a huge amount of flavor to the meatloaf. (It's originally from my lentil loaf recipe) And please don't put that Heinz corn syrup stuff on your own meatloaf. Yes I simply said that; don't hate me! I'm a HUGE lover of ketchup (as in I put that sht on everything and We don't purchase Heinz), however you can easily make delicious EASY homemade awesome meatloaf sauce yourself. Trust in the power of the recipe. Okay now I'm craving brownies and also have more zucchini waiting around. Wish me luck.

I actually made this yesterday evening for my husband, who was extremely skeptical of the recipe and stated can't we only need regular meatloaf?“. I took it from the oven and before I could even snap an image he was digging in! He ate 3 huge slices and desires me to make it again in a few days!
