Terrific Turkey Meatloaf

Posted in Recipes by etswatch on 02/26/2010

Ingredients

  • 16 oz ground turkey, 93% lean
  • 1 cup red peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 medium-sized onion
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • 2 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp pepper, red or cayenne
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 tbsp low carb, reduced sugar tomato ketchup (optional)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Directions

    You will need a large bowl to mix your ingredients in and a small loaf pan to cook it in. I use the disposable aluminum pans for easy portion control and a quick clean up afterwards.
    Strat by placing the ground turkey, onions and peppers in the bowl.
    I add my spices which include paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, a dash of salt and ground black pepper.
    Add the worcestershire sauce and one egg and work the spices through the meat mixture with your hands or a large spoon or fork. Add your grated parmesan cheese. This adds flavor and removes the excess moisture from your meat. The amount of parmesan you add depends on how moist or dry your meat mixture looks and feels. You should be able to form a patty or loaf without the mixture coming apart. If the the mixture is still too wet add more grated parmesan.
    Then add the meat to the loaf pan and pat down into a loaf. Place your loaf pan on a baking sheet and place in a 350 degree oven for approximately 35-45 minutes.
    You will able to tell the meatloaf is done by the color and you will see the clear juices bubbling around the edges of the meatloaf.
    During the last 5 minutes of cooking you can glaze the top of your meatloaf with the ketchup if desired.
