Oh Baby! Turkey Farina Meatloaf (skip the breadcrumbs)

turkey meatloaf
Farina (Cream of Wheat) is a great substitute for breadcrumbs as a binding agent with ground meat or even vegetable burgers! It is high in iron and easy to digest, heck, its baby cereal! The Farina keeps the meat moist and doesn’t dry it out like breadcrumbs often do. The texture was also a nice surprise. I was expecting it might be grainy but the Farina absorbs just the right amount of mouisture. Give it a try!

  1. Using farina in a meatloaf is a great idea and much more nutritional than bread crumbs. Also, I like the cajun seasoning in here. Both of those factors make this a very unique recipe. I have not used ground turkey very much, but that needs to change. Delicious post! Have a great day.
