I made this last night because I bought 3 pounds of ground turkey on sale, and didn’t know what to do with it. I’m trying to start up on Atkins again so you may notice there’s no breadcrumbs in this. All in all, it came out pretty good, but I’m going to add some green peppers and maybe experiment with some more spices next time. Yoou may also notice I’m in the midst of an Indian kick, so it’s got some curry and Garam Masalla in it.
Let me know if you tried this out, and if you tried anything different with it!
2 lbs Ground Turkey
1/2 tbs Garam Masala
1/2 tbs Curry
1/2 tbs chili powder
1/2 tbs paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup parsley
1/2 onion, chopped fine
2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1 tbs butter
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup A1 or Worcestershire sauce
splash of milk
favorite hot sauce (to taste)
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
Time: 5min prep/ 1hr cook
Saute the chopped onions and garlic in the butter, about five minutes or until the onions are translucent – about 5 minutes. Throw in green pepper and anything else you might have. I added some salt and pepper to this as well. (I love fresh ground black pepper.)
Meanwhile: Unwrap ground turkey and put in a bowl. (Or leave it in the plastic container it came in, if it’s big enough to hold the turkey and mixins.)
Mix in spices, egg, milk, A1 or Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and ketchup. Mix it all together real good until it’s one big mound of turkey goodness.
After produce is done sauteing, put aside to cool. Then, mix it in the meat as well. If it’s too “meaty” add some more ketchup or A1/Worcestershire sauce. Slop this all inside a lightly greased 10×13 baking pan and preheat your oven to 350°.
While the oven heats up, form a loaf about 1 1/2 – 2 inches high and however long you want. Keep room between the loaf and the edge and throw random bits of onion, peppers, and garlic in the gap. :)
Bake for about an hour, or until the inside is 160°.
Try this with
Instant (or real) mashed potatos. I cheated and ate some with this meatloaf, even though the potato is like the Atkins diet’s Anti-Christ. It was my first night, so it’s understandable to crave the carbs! I’ve gone all day today without any – and believe me, I’d kill my own mother for a Zinger right now.
