I am making turkey loaf - this is a new one (ground turkey was on sale at Fry's). I like that its a full meal in one dish. And an interesting one at that.
|before being cooked|
Ground turkey mixture (which contains rice), cheese, broccoli, cheese, turkey mixture. Interesting.
The only thing is, in the turkey mixture, it calls for 1 Tablespoon of beef bouillon. 1 Tablespoon!
Do you know how much sodium is in 1Tbsp of beef bouillon!? 2700 mg!!!
Is ground turkey just so bland that they had to add a bucket of salt to give it some flavor?
The daily recommended amount of sodium is less than 2400 mg. Okay, okay, sure, you slice the loaf into 8 pieces, but I still think that is way too much sodium.
So I just put 1 teaspoon of beef bouillon in. I'm good at altering.
I'm not good at altering for the better taste, I have no idea how it will turn out.
I'll let you know in an hour and a half.
At that same time I'll also let you know if my husband has enrolled me in a cooking class.
