{the dish} Turkey Loaf

A month or so ago Amy and I were talking with a friend who wanted the recipe for turkey "meat" loaf. Amy and I both gave our advise and he said his turned out great. But that sparked and interest. Can you believe it took me this long to try my own. Well here it is. A so so review from the kids but my husband and I liked it a bunch.

Turkey Loaf by ann west

Fresh ground turkey
red pepper
red onion
parmesean cheese
2 eggs
1 tbls olive oil
1/3 cup bread crumbs
2-3 tbls tomato paste
poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp ground sage
salt and pepper

Start with fresh ground turkey. The turkey I bought was all white. Personally I think you need some dark meat in the mix for flavor and to lend some more moisture. Chop some onion (a couple of slices), some garlic (6 cloves - don't be shy here it gives a ton of flavor), and some red pepper and parsley.

Mix as you would a meat loaf. Everything goes in. Don't over work it. Form into a loaf and cook in a 375 degree oven for 45 min or until done.

It seems here lately, all I find myself eating is turkey or chicken! So, when I stumbled upon this recipe I was super excited! I can't wait to give this a try!
