With a health care background of 15 years, working in senior care environments including long-term care, private homes and agencies, I am currently a member of Arista’s staff and preparing meals to serve 7 days a week for one of our clients. My experience includes 2 years in the dietary department of a long-term care facility, and because I love to eat, I love to cook.
Here’s a simple idea which can spice up a meal for someone who may have a diminished appetite due to failing taste buds.
Recipe: 1 – 1 1/2 lbs. of ground beef, pork, turkey
¼ to ½ cup of finely ground bread crumbs
1 T. parsley flakes and/or other herbs (marjoram, thyme, etc.)
½ t. salt/pepper
1 t. Worchestshire sauce (optional)
¼ cup mild to spicy salsa
Blend all the ingredients and form into medium size loaf or 2 mini loaves and bake 355 degrees 30-35 minutes. Can be served with extra salsa.
