Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slice firm white bread
  • cooking spray
  • 236.59 ml finely chopped onion
  • 78.07 ml bottled roasted red pepper
  • 59.14 ml shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Place bread slices in a food processor, and pulse 10 times or until fine crumbs measure 1 1/4 cups.
  3. Heat a medium nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Place onion in food processor. Add bell peppers, and pulse 10 times or until the bell peppers are chopped.
  4. Combine breadcrumbs, onion mixture, cheese, pesto, salt, turkey, beef, and egg. Divide beef mixture into 9 equal portions, shaping each into a (3 x 1-inch) loaf.
