Amanda’s Meatloaf
Serves 6-8


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp. ground sage
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1/2 pound turkey sausage
  • 1/4 c. ketchup
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard

How to

  1. Combine eggs and milk, stir in bread crumbs, parsley, sage, salt and pepper.
  2. Add ground turkey and sausage. Mix well.
  3. Pat mixture into a 8×4 loaf pan and bake at 350 for 1 1/4 hours.
  4. Spoon off excess fat.
  5. Combine ketchup, brown sugar and mustard. Spread over meat.
  6. Return to oven for 10 minutes.

Pizza Crust
Makes two small pies or one large


  • 1 tbsp. yeast
  • 1 tsp. sugar/honey/agave
  • 1 c. warm water
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 1/2 c. white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 – 1 c. all purpose flour (I usually only need 1/2 c.)

How to

  1. Combine yeast, sugar and water until dissolved. Let rest until proofed.
  2. Add salt, oil and white whole wheat flour. Mix well.
  3. Add enough all purpose flour to make a soft dough.
  4. Knead until smooth.
  5. Place in greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  6. Form on large pizza or two small ones. Or freeze the second half for a later day (which is what I usually do)

Pizza Sauce
Makes a lot. I freeze it in about 1/2 c. portions for future pizza nights.


  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 28 oz. crushed tomatoes (could use diced, but I don’t like mine chunky)
  • 1 tbsp. dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 6 oz. tomato paste

How to

  1. In saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add garlic and heat till lightly browned.
  3. Add crushed tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt and red pepper flakes. Simmer until sauce begins to reduce, about 10 minutes.
  4. Blend in tomato paste and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
  5. Cool slightly before using on pizza
