I love this recipe because it is quite tasty, with a spicy kick. I have been making this meatloaf or a modified version of it for years now. Sometimes I substitute 1/2 cup of oatmeal (soaked in water)in place of the bread. I often change the types of vegetables I use in it, but the result is always the same--YUMMY!!!
- 1 1⁄4 lbs ground turkey breast
- 4 slices whole wheat bread, soaked in
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 2 egg whites
- 1⁄2 large onion, chopped
- 2 stalks scallions, medium chopped
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1⁄2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
- 1 small carrot, finely chopped
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon seasoning salt (e.g. Lawry's brand)
- 1 tablespoon gravy master seasoning and browning sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried basil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 3⁄4 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons honey or 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or 1 1⁄2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 dash Tabasco sauce (optional)
- In a large bowl, thoroughly combine the ground turkey, soaked bread and egg whites.
- Add all remaining ingredients to the turkey mixture (except those listed for the sauce) and combine with your hands or a mixing spoon.
- Bake uncovered in a greased loafpan at approximately 400 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
- Combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl.
- Spread sauce on top of meatloaf and bake for an additional 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
I liked the flavor of this but the bread didn't break down enough. I tried to shred it up and I ended up with chunks of bread in my meatloaf. I think next time I will try the oatmeal. It will absorb better. But the flavors were nice. I had way too much sauce. Plus I only had to cook mine 1 hour.
Wonderful! I used oatmeal in place of the bread and tryed with ground chicken cause thats all I had. This meatloaf is bursting with flavor. The sauce adds a nice touch. Highly recommend. I also added 1 tsp of worchestire sauce. Cant wait to try with the turkey. Thanks for posting!
This was delicious. We could not even tell that it was turkey and not ground beef. I had to leave out the jalapeno and browning sauce because I did not have them but it was still very tasty and moist.
