Homestyle Meat Loaf
1 1?2 lbs. lean ground turkey
1 chopped onion
4 egg whites
1 c salsa
3?4 oats, uncooked
1 pkg. dry vegetable soup mix
1?4 tsp ground black pepper

8 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain
5. Remove meatloaf from oven and let sit 5 minutes before slicing.
6. Drain potatoes and return to pan. Mash while adding skim milk a little at a time. Add butter buds and mash vigorously until light and fluffy.
