This comes from Cooking Pleasures magazine. You don't need mini loaf pans because this is hand-formed and baked on a baking sheet. They are made with ground turkey instead of ground beef and have a lighter finished color because of it, so the tomatoes add a bright pretty touch of color to them. Avoid overworking the meat when mixing it together or they will become more dense and heavier.
- 1⁄2 cup sun-dried tomato (not oil-packed)
- 1⁄4 cup boiling water
- 1 lb extra- lean ground turkey
- 1⁄2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1⁄2 cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese
