Turkeyloaf

Posted on
I love cooking with ground turkey. It is better for you that ground beef, it cooks the same, it soaks up more flavor, and it is less greasy. I usually hate meatloaf, but I had seen parts of this recipe in a magazine and thought it sounded really good. Luckily, it was.
It is an interesting form of meatloaf because it is full of delicious vegetables and the hint of salsa is great. Here it is (recipe under slideshow):

TurkeyLoaf

  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 1 eggn or egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/8 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/8 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs ( I used Food for Life brown rice bread. If you refrigerate yours — which you should— the texture of it allows you to throw it right in a blender or food processor without drying to get the small crumbs)
  • lemon pepper to taste
  • mozzarella cheese for the top if you want

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. If you like you peppers small, you can use a food processor, just be sure to drain excess juices so the meatloaf will actually cook. Mix everything together in a large bowl (except cheese if you choose to use it). Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Add cheese on top and leave in over until melted (2 minutes or so). Serve with salad.
