Thanks to my good friend and HEALTHY BITES partner Kelly Bruneman for this recipe and nutrition facts!
This recipe was a 10 out of 10 with the Husband. I added a few extra ingredients to spice it up a bit (because James loves spicy everything). But overall, it was easy, healthy, and YUM. Next time I will be more adventurous and try cooking it with ostrich meat (another lean red meat with a great source of iron).
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup oats
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped (I actually use a tri blend of red, yellow, green)
1/4 tsp salt
chili powder (optional spice)
1 pound lean ground beef (or turkey...you're choice)
8 ounces crushed pineapple, drained
Combine egg, oats, onion, bell pepper and salt. Add beef and pineapple. Mix well. Place in a 8x8 baking dish and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Top with BBQ sauce (we used smoky/spicy sauce) and bake for another 3-5 minutes.
