So ground turkey went on clearance and I am not above buying discounted meat. Especially with a nice big standing freezer in the garage that uses less energy the more stuff inside it.
This is a simple meatloaf that can have many different vegetables added to it. There are two binding agents which help offset the lower fat of the ground turkey. Another option would be to mix in some fattier ground pork but where is the fun in that.
Turkey Meat Loaf
- 2 lbs 93% lean ground turkey
- 1 medium onion diced medium small
- 3 anaheim peppers chopped fine
- 3 thin slices whole wheat bread crusts removed and cut into small cubes
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp chopped fresh sage
In a large bowl pour buttermilk over bread cubes and wait 30 minutes for liquid to be absorbed. Strain off any remaining buttermilk then add everything else and mix well. Form meat into a loaf and place in a greased baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season outside with salt and pepper. Bake at 365 degrees until cooked through, about 40 minutes. Let meatloaf stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
