SAVORY TURKEY MEAT LOAF
.
I found this recipe by accident on the RecipeZaar website. I almost totally revamped it to be more tasty and more healthful. This loaf is just as yummy as one made with beef---maybe enven yummier. ENJOY!
Serves 6

1 pound ground turkey breast
2 slices whole grain bread -- cut in chunks
1/2 medium onion -- cut in chunks
2 cloves garlic -- cut in chunks
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1 egg
3 - 4 tablespoons 2% low fat milk (I cheated and used heavy cream....heehee)
1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tablespoon olive oil

Place turkey into a medium mixing bowl. Place bread in a food processor and process to break the bread down into fine crumbs. Add crrumbs to the turkey. Place the onion and gartlic chunks into the food processor and process until finely minced. Add mixture to the turkey. Add the remaining ingredients to the meat mixture. Using your hands or a large spoon, combine all ingredients until well incorporated. Mixture should not be too wet or loose.

If time permits, cover the bowl and refrigerate about 1-2 hours to allow flavors to blend.

Remove turkey from the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350. Spray a sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Transfer mixture to the prepared pan, shape into a loaf, and press down to compact. Bake until browned and cooked through, 50-60 minutes. Remove from the oven, tent with foil and lLet stand 20 minutes before slicing.
