Sunday dinner was Turkey Meatloaf with Roasted Potatoes! Fireman and twins loved it! I don't eat beef or pork so I have to get creative to come up with dinners.
2 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 cups yellow onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, chopped or minced
3/4 tsp freshly ground pepper, according to taste
3/4 tsp kosher salt, according to taste
1 tsp italian seasoning, dry
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup ketchup
1 3/4 lbs of ground turkey
3/4 cups italian bread crumbs
2 eggs (1 whole egg & 1egg white), lightly beaten
**optional: shredded carrots ~1/3 cup
1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In medium saute pan, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onions until lightly translucent, approx 5 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook another minute.
2) Add salt and pepper to taste, italian seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, chicken broth and 2 tbsp of ketchup to onion mixture in pan. Mix well and allow to cool.
2) In large bowl, combine with clean hands ground turkey, bread crumbs, eggs, and onion mixture. Mix well.
3) Line a 13x9 baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray. Shape meat mixture into a loaf in center of baking dish. Spread 2 tbsp of ketchup over the top of the loaf.
4) Bake in center of oven for 1 hour. Place a small baking dish with hot water on bottom rack of oven. This helps keep meatloaf moist during cooking process. Internal temperature should be between 165-170 degrees F. Serve warm or cold.
