Turkey Meat Loaf

I’ve been neglecting this blog for a while, so I’m starting a new series titled “Things Based on Meat Loaf.” First entry… Meat Loaf!

On a side note, I don’t eat beef. Leftover habit from my obligatory Art History major vegetarianism from undergrad school. I don’t have any problem with it, I just don’t eat it. You can certainly substitute ground beef for any of these recipes. I add a little extra spicing which maybe you’d want to cut down on?? I don’t know, it’s been well over 20 years since I tasted beef.

2 lbs. ground turkey
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 tsp. garlic
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
2 eggs
1/3 cup ketchup

Worcestershire sauce & ketchup

Mix all ingredients, shape into a ball, dump in a baking pan, bake at 350 for about an hour. Voilá, meat loaf. I like to make baked potatoes with it because they take an hour in the oven too. It’s like God is telling you these things belong together isn’t it? My baked potatoes are pretty amazing, rub them in oil and sprinkle kosher salt on both sides. Ten years in restaurants I had to learn something useful. Oh, don’t forget to spread the topping on the meat loaf for the last 5-10 minutes.
