I know it's wrong - but sometimes fried foods taste sooo good. I did space out these two fried dishes - only deep fry once a week max!
Giada's Italian fried pork chops are juicy and delicious. Paired with pasta and sauteed squash, zucchini, spinach and tomatoes - a light(ish) Italian dinner.
Fried tomatoes made with Smokin' Joe's cornmeal batter are crispy and tasty. With a simple turkey meatloaf and salad, this is a quick weeknight meal.
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/4 lbs ground turkey
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
3/4 cup Ketchup
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a skillet. Cook onion and garlic in melted butter for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place mixture in a large bowl to cool for 5 minutes. Combine turkey, bread crumbs, egg, 1/4 cup of the catsup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper with onion mixture. Mold meatloaf in a mound-shaped loaf and place in a lightly Pammed baking dish. Spread remaining catsup on top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50-55 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Vance had a meatloaf sandwich with the leftovers and he raved about it. A meatloaf sandwich sounds kind of bizarre to me, but he loved it!
