Pepper Jack Stuffed Turkey Meat Loaf1

HEALTHY LOW CARB Turkey Zucchini Meat Loaf stuffed with pepper jack and topped with delicious sauce EVER!
Zucchini, zucchini, ZUCCHINI. It’s taking over my life. I’m uncertain I mind a lot, but I can tell you that I’m obtaining sick of shredding the zucchini. I have some 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 symptoms. Yes, it’s officially a syndrome (in the AK book in any case).
I realize I am doing various baked items with zucchini so this time I needed to enable you to get something just a little savory like this turkey zucchini meatloaf. I made a decision that adding some zucchini to a turkey meatloaf would not only be a great way to get my vegetables in, but additionally to add wetness (since I take advantage of 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 about just a little kick. It’s funny, I actually don’t consider pepper jack to become spicy; my Mother used to serve jalapenos at just about any meal therefore i think my tastebuds have adapted to the stage where I can pour oodles of Sriracha on my meals without any effect.
Not sure if that’s a good thing or not?
So, for everyone mamas available or food preppers this is an excellent healthy formula and makes terrific leftovers. I had been chowing down on it for a couple days with a nice sweet potato on the side.
The awesome sauce is well… AWESOME. It’s sugary but spicy and really adds a huge amount of flavor to the meatloaf. (It’s originally from my lentil loaf formula)
And do not put that Heinz corn syrup stuff on your own meatloaf. Yes I just stated that; don’t hate me!
I’m a HUGE enthusiast of ketchup (as in I place that sht on everything and I don’t purchase Heinz), nevertheless, you can easily produce delicious EASY homemade awesome meatloaf sauce yourself. Rely upon the power of this recipe.
Okay now I’m craving brownies and have more zucchini waiting. Wish me fortune.

I actually made this last night for my husband, who was very skeptical of this formula and stated can’t we just have regular meatloaf?”. I took it from the range and before I could even snap an image he was digging in! He ate 3 huge slices and wants me to create it again in a few days!
