Meatloaf is one of my favorite meals to make on evenings when my husband is working and I’m home with the kids. This makes the perfect amount for me and the boys, ages 4 and 8, and I can spend the afternoon with them while the meatloaf cooks. To make this dish gluten-free, make or use gluten-free bread crumbs.

8 ounces lean ground beef 4 ounces ground turkey ½ cup whole-grain bread crumbs ½ cup minced onion 1 teaspoon minced garlic ¼ cup minced fresh parsley 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme ¼ cup ketchup 1 egg ⅛ teaspoon sea salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

1. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, ground turkey, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, parsley, thyme, ketchup, egg, salt, and a few grinds of the black pepper. Use your hands to mix all the ingredients together thoroughly.

2. Grease the inside of the slow cooker with the olive oil. Put the meatloaf mixture in the crock and form it into a loaf-like shape.

3. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

COOKING TIP Choose a ketchup without high-fructose corn syrup. High-fructose corn syrup has been linked to a wide array of
health problems, including metabolic syndrome.
