When meatloaf is made with lean meats such as turkey it can be formed into a roll and cooked directly on a baking pan with a side of vegetables for an easy one dish meal. Because turkey is so lean it’s best to use dark meat.
1 - small yellow onion, finely chopped
2 - cloves, garlic minced
1 - carrot, finely diced
6 - cremini mushrooms, finely diced
½ - teaspoon mixed Italian seasoning
1 ¼ - lbs dark ground turkey meat
¼ - cup breadcrumbs
1 - egg, lightly beaten
¾ - cup ketchup or BBQ sauce
½ - teaspoon Kosher salt
Saute the onions over moderate heat for a few minutes then stir in the garlic and cook for a few minutes.
Stir in the carrots, mushrooms and Italian seasoning and cook covered with a little water or stock until the carrots have softened, about 8 - 10 minutes.
Heat the oven to Combination Convection Steam 350 degrees
Combine the turkey, breadcrumbs, egg and ½ cup of the ketchup or BBQ sauce and season with the salt and pepper.
Stir in the cooked vegetables and place the mixture on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment.
Shape the mixture into a long thin log and brush with the remainder of the ketchup or BBQ sauce.
Toss the vegetables with a little oil and arrange on the baking sheet next to the turkey.
Allow approximately 35 - 40 minutes to cook the turkey and 10 minutes for resting before slicing.
