Apple butter BBQ turkey meat loaf

Stuff I Cook for my Husband
Stuff I Cook for my Husband – Pictured with mashed fauxtatoesI like making meat loaf because it’s yummy, the leftovers taste good, it’s easy to reheat, and you really have to try hard to mess it up. I love the apple butter BBQ sauce from my chicken drumsticks recipe, so I decided to use it in meat loaf for an interesting flavor twist. I thought it would pair well with ground turkey moreso than beef. I also added some tasty spices and sauteed veggies.I hate using alternative flours as a binder.

Civilized Caveman Cooking Beast BBQ Sauce with bonus Roast

Beef Brisket Low & Slow; Paleo BBQ Sauce

Free The Animal
Free The Animal – I once smoked a brisket years ago but otherwise had never cooked one. From what I gather, it’s a rather tricky meat to cook as it doesn’t have a lot in intramuscular fat, and it’s a muscle meat that gets a lot of work, being as it is, the pectoral muscle of the cow. We… Read more
