Turkey Stuffing Turkey Meatloaf and Mashed Parsnips
Posted Feb 27 2011 6:01pm
Sarah asked me last week why I didn't have more turkey meatloaf recipes on my site and I had no good answer. So guess what I couldn't stop thinking about all week? I knew immediately what seasonings I wanted to use - I wanted my turkey meatloaf to taste like Thanksgiving. I know, it's almost spring, but that doesn't stop me from craving delicious autumn foods! I made a turkey meatloaf that has all the seasonings of stuffing and it was absolutely perfect!
Turkey Stuffing Turkey Meatloaf 20 ounces ground turkey 1/2 large onion, finely chopped 3 stalks of celery, finely chopped 3 carrots, finely chopped 1/2 cup oat flour (rolled oats ground in a food processor) 1/4 cup egg white or 1 whole egg 1 Tbsp olive oil poultry seasoning salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350. Heat the oil and add the chopped veggies, cook until tender. Season with salt, pepper and a generous amount of poultry seasoning. Turn off the heat. In a large bowl add the ground turkey and season with salt, pepper, and a little poultry seasoning. Add the seasoned veggies, oat flour, and egg and mix until combined but don't overwork the meat.
Cover a baking rack with foil and spray with nonstick spray. Add the meat and shape into a loaf. Bake for 30 minutes, or until cooked through.
And, well, since Sarah made mashed cauliflower with her last turkey meatloaf I thought I'd inspire her to switch it up a little with mashed parsnips. I love mashed parsnips! There's not much of a recipe here since, like mashed potatoes or cauliflower you can whip them up however you want.
Mashed Parsnips 1-2 parsnips per serving Stock, broth, or water salt and pepper to taste Milk, optional
Peel the parsnips and cut into big chunks. Boil them in stock, broth, or water until very tender. Drain and place into the bowl of a food processor. Season with salt and pepper and add a little liquid of your choice to help the blending (you can use milk, more stock, or water). Process until smooth.
These are so delicious, I can't wait for dinner tonight!
