Zucchini Meatloaf

Do you cringe when you hear the word meatloaf because of its notorious dry texture and tasteless flavor?  This meatloaf will change your view on this homestyle dish. It's moist and flavorful and will become one of your favorite meals.  Enjoy!

1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 medium zucchini
1 egg
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons parsley

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

Peel and grate the zucchini into a large bowl.  Add the egg and stir together.  Now add your meat of choice.  I used turkey this time.  Sprinkle in the parmesan cheese and bread crumbs.  Mix with your hands.  Then add the water, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parsley.  Mix just until combined.  Form into a log shape on a baking sheet or in a loaf pan.  Making a long, thinner meatloaf will promote a juicy center with a crispy crust. 

Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes with aluminum foil on top.  Then take the foil off and continue to cook for 15 minutes.  Serve and enjoy!
