DIRECTIONS

  • In a large skillet, heat the oil and saute the garlic, celery, leeks and red pepper, stirring until slightly softened (about 4 mintues).
  • Meanwhile, boil a kettle of water, and preheat the oven to 375º.
  • Stir the mushrooms into the sauted mixture, cover the pan for a few minutes until the mushrooms start to give up their liquid. Remove the cover and saute longer until all the liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the turkey, egg, salt, pepper, nutmeg, bread crumbs, and parsley. Add the sauteed vegetables and combine the ingredients well. Transfer the turkey mixture to a lightly greased loaf pan (4"x8") and set the pan in a large, shallow baking dish.
  • Place the pans in the preheated oven, pour the boiling water into the OUTER pan to a depth of about 1" and bake the loaf for 1 hr and 15 minutes.
  • When cooked, remove the loaf pan from the outer pan and from the oven. Let rest for 15 minutes and then serve.
