Turkey Meatloaf

One of the most common myths about healthy food choices is that they don’t taste good. Try this meatloaf and you’ll know better. It’s full of big meaty flavour and is a deeply satisfying way to get some healthy flavour on the table.

Directions for: Turkey Meatloaf

Ingredients

2 Tbsp vegetable oil

2 onions, peeled and sliced

4 garlic cloves, minced

8 oz button mushrooms, cleaned and chopped

2 lb. of ground turkey

½ cup milk

1 cup breadcrumbs

2 eggs

1 can (156 ml) tomato paste

A few dashes Worcestershire sauce

1 Tbsp dried thyme or oregano

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Preheat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat, and then add the oil and onions. Sauté them until they are golden brown. Add the garlic and mushrooms and continue sautéing until all the liquid has evaporated and the mushrooms have lightly browned.

3. In a large bowl mix together the turkey, milk, breadcrumbs, egg, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, thyme and mushroom mixture. Season well with salt and pepper. Press the mixture into a loaf pan, or 8” by 8” baking dish and bake until lightly browned on top and firm, about 1 hour. An instant read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meatloaf should read 165 degrees.
