I need a yummy meatloaf recipe that
actually uses ground chicken or turkey. I am trying to eat less red meat. Thanks!
Here's my recipe, although I will admit to using ground bison too. It's an equally low fat/low cholesterol meat...
Spicy Chipotle Turkey Meatloaf
Serves 4 with leftovers
2 lb minced turkey or buffalo meat
1/3 c ketchup
1 t kosher salt
1 1/2 t freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup oatmeal
1 T canned chipotle peppers en adobo, chopped (or more)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2T grated romano cheese (or any sharp cheese)
Amounts to your taste
1. Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
Lightly oil a 9X5X3" loaf pan.
2. In a bowl, combine the gound meat, ketchup, egg, salt, pepper, bread crumbs, chipotle peppers and their sauce, garlic, and cheese. Mix well.
3. Press the mixture into the loaf pan, brush or ladle glaze over top, and cover with foil. Set the loaf on a rimmed baking sheet.
4. Bake the meatloaf for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for 10 minutes or until browned.
I gotten rave reviews of this Turkey Mushroom Meatloaf:
I make it with Ground Turkey Breast (much heathlier than regular ground turkey) and it always turns out moist.
Ina Garten, Barefooft Contessa, also has a good Turkey Meatloaf recipe:
Check Fine Cooking. The last issue had a "create your own" meatloaf with lots of good ideas. I haven't made any of the poultry ones, but have made the cheddar stout one twice, with excellent results. You probably could sub in ground chicken or turkey for at least part of the meats in many of the meat loaves they suggest.
