I have a gourmet turkey meatloaf recipie, one that my husband loves but it requires that you actually plan to make it in advance since you need fresh mushrooms (don’t worry they are very well hidden and your kids will never figure it out) to get the flavor and texture correct.
That would require planning this meal more than a few hours in advance, which doesn’t always happen in my house so here is the meatloaf that requires only stale, dried or frozen ingredients with the exception of minced onion. I normally have onions around as they are in virtually everything that I cook.
1 Cup GF breadcrumbs (from stale GF bread, preferably NOT corn, rice or nut based).
1 LB Legacy ground turkey (sold frozen and raw although any raw ground turkey will do)
1LB Legacy turkey breakfast sausage (you can also use a safe raw pork sausage squeezed out of the casing)
2TB Herbes de Provence (note, you can also use dried sage if you don’t have Herbes de Provence)
1/2 tsp (or so) of salt
1/8 tsp of pepper
1 5 x 9 loaf pan
1 large bowl
1 paring knife
1 chopping board
1 one cup measure
1 set of measuring spoons
InstructionsDefrost sausage and turkey
