Turkey Meat Loaf Comfort!


For the first weekend of 2011, I figured something comforting for dinner on January 1st was necessary. Forget the fact that it would sop up any craziness from the night before, but settling into a New Year with comforting, yet healthy, food makes all the difference!

Turkey Meatloaf
 (makes 1 large loaf, great for leftovers)

3/4 cup quick-cooking oats 1/2 cup skim milk 1 medium onion, peeled 2 pounds ground turkey breast 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper 2 eggs, beaten 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 1/4 cup ketchup 3-4 garlic cloves, minced1/2 fresh herbs: parsley, oregano, rosemary, basil, etc. Mix and match in your favorites!1/2 teaspoon salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauceDirections
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl, stir together the oats and milk. Thinly slice 1/4 of the onion and set aside. Finely chop the remaining onion. In a large bowl combine the turkey, oat mixture, chopped onion, bell pepper, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, herbs, salt and a few grinds of pepper. Mix just until well combined. Transfer the mixture to a 9 by 13-inch baking dish and shape into a loaf about 5 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches high or in a large-medium loaf pan. Pour the tomato sauce over the meatloaf and sprinkle with the sliced onions. Bake for about 1 hour or until an instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees.F. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 to15 minutes before slicing. 

Stay tuned, tomorrow I will share the mashed potato and red cabbage recipes!
