I can’t believe the week is almost over!! I have a 4 day weekend this weekend, so I am totally excited about that!
For dinner the other night, I made my mini meatloaves again. It’s such a nice change from burgers or tacos!
I used ground sirloin, cracked an egg, I didn’t have any bread crumbs, so I put 2 slices of wheat bread in my magic bullet, and poured that into the meat. I added grated garlic, salt, pepper, and McCormick Hamburger seasoning.
For mine, I measured 5 ounces of uncooked meat per mini meatloaf. I put them on a cookie rack on top of a cookie sheet and baked at 375 for 15-18 minutes. For the potatoes, I just washed red potatoes, cooked them in the microwave with the skin on. Just add about 1/2 cup of skim milk, a little butter and salt and pepper and mash away!
The best part of this dinner, is I had 3 mini meatloaves left, so I had this for lunch today and it was so good!
I haven’t made these microwave potato chips in a while. If you’ve never tried it, you have to, it really works! I got the recipe from
This is what you will need:
1 medium russet potato
whatever other seasonings you want; cumin, chili powder, Lawry’s season salt, Old Bay Seasoning, whatever you like! I used a combo of just salt and pepper.
Slice the potatoes as thin as possible. A food processor would work well, or if you have a fancy mandolin slicer, that would work too!
Place the parchment paper in your microwave. Spread the potato slices without them touching. You can put the seasonings on now. Microwave on high for about 4-5 minutes. Don’t walk away! When you start to see brown spots, turn off the microwave and wait 1 minute. Microwave on high again until golden brown. (about another minute or so).
I even saw an idea about making salt and vinegar chips (which one of my son loves) by dipping each potato slice in cider vinegar before putting it on the parchment paper, sprinkle with salt and follow the same procedure mentioned above.
You can eat all the chips for only 60 calories, trace fat and 1 fiber!! (Depending on how big your potato is)!
Snack on my friends!!
