 Turkey Meatloaf with Cranberry Sauce

Comments: 0
 

Recipe

Lean, mild ground turkey makes a delicious loaf if it is well-seasoned. This version, topped with a colorful cranberry sauce for flavor and color is a timely loaf to serve during the holidays. Bake sweet potatoes alongside for an easy weeknight dinner.

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1½ pounds ground turkey
  • ¼ cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • ½ cup peeled and grated carrot
  • ¼ cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 cup coarse dried bread crumbs
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon dried sage
  • ½ teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup homemade or canned cranberry sauce, slightly drained, at room temperature
  • Fresh sage leaves for garnish

Directions

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the cranberry sauce and sage leaves and mix well. Turn the mixture into a lightly sprayed or oiled 9-by-5-inch loaf pan and gently pat down. Bake until the loaf is firm and the top is lightly browned, about 1 hour. Spread the cranberry sauce on top of the loaf and let stand in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Remove the loaf from the pan and transfer to a platter. Garnish with sage leaves
