Meatloaf...double beat loaf, you won't hate this meatloaf!





Turkey Meatloaf...compliments of Ellie Krieger

So, it's been snowing most of the weekend here and I found myself wanting something slow cooked and delicious to warm up the whole house, again! It turned out that I had some ground turkey on hand so I decided to go for turkey meatloaf instead of the standard meatloaf, which I very much enjoy as well. So, here goes, and for all of you folks out there with a new year's resolution to keep, try an Ellie Krieger recipe; it just makes you feel healthier.


To begin this deep delicious dish, start with a bit of oatmeal and milk to bind everything together. Next, chop up up some onion. Leave one fourth of the onion sliced and set it aside for later. (A little topping, perhaps?) Now, you've got your flavor going, but it doesn't stop there. Check it out.








Yeah, that's right, some chopped red pepper comes next. This gives the meatloaf a kick of flavor. I liked it finely chopped, but chop as you like.












Next, I beat two eggs. A meatloaf isn't complete without those eggs.











Finally, I put all the ingredients together. Not only did the meatloaf have the milk, oatmeal, onion, red pepper, eggs, and turkey, it also called for the following to really amp up the flavor factor: worcestershire sauce, ketchup, salt and some fresha peppar. I love the simple ingredients! I had it all in the pantry, but Ellie wasn't done yet, there was more flavor to come.









That's right a little tomato sauce to top off the loaf and what a loaf it was! I needed a few people over to help me get through this big guy. Guess we'll be eating leftover meatloaf for awhile...oh well.











Now back to the meatloaf... it was then time to get those sliced onions (remember, I set them aside earlier) and spread them on top of the fine loaf. Beautiful and ready to go in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour.



Note: In a half an hour's time the aromas will be unbearably delicious. Hold yourself back, though, no one likes a soggy meatloaf.




Finally, after an hour or so, the smells are worth the wait and you have a delectable slice of meatloaf ready to meet your taste buds! Yum.
Try it yourself, you won't be disappointed, but remember to invite a few friends over for this meal because it's a big one!

Ellie Krieger's Turkey Meatloaf

Ingredients

  • 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
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce

Directions

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, 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. 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.
