Jan 22: Turkey, Bacon Chipotle Meatloaf with Baked Sweet Potato and Chipotle Coleslaw


It’s the weekend so we had more time to cook lunch, settling on Giant Baked Beans, Bacon and Fried Eggs on toasted Italian Bread.

  • Italian Bread adds 32c per serve
  • The Giant Baked Beans are $1.99 or $1.00 per serve
  • Pastured Eggs are 38c each, or 76c per serve
  • Bacon was $4.99 and we used five of 10 slices, or $1.25 per serve.

The toast provides the textural base, the Baked Beans make the dish satisfyingly filling. The Bacon brings Salt and the Eggs form a creamy dressing. A very satisfying meal for $3.33 per serve.


Time for our other favorite Meatloaf: Turkey, Bacon Chipotle, which we served with a Twice Baked Loaded Potato and Chipotle dressed Coleslaw.

  • Ground turkey cost $6.39 or $1.60 per serve
  • Bacon was $5.99 and we used ⅓, or 50c per serve
  • A can of chipotle is $1.50 and we used half, or 38c per serve
  • Add 65c for onion, breadcrumbs and seasonings
  • Add 30c for Mayonnaise and Chipotle Hot Sauce for the Dressing
  • Add 40c for Coleslaw Mix
  • The pack of two Twice Baked Potato was $2.99 or $1.50 per serve.

The Meatloaf came out with a very fine texture thanks to additional processing in the food processor. We changed our side at the last minute to a Twice Baked, Loaded Baked Potato from Aldi, which was again well cooked and the filling rich with a hint of bacon and cheddar. A pretty good meal for $5.73 per serve.
