Over the years, I have varied what goes into them, layered them, hid other food in them. Meatloaf was fun to make because of the variety. I am not a big fan of meatloaf though. I will eat it and consider it to be fine but I don't walk away praising it.
Last Friday was one of these change of pace days. I made turkey loaves in round shapes. I have aluminum foil pans that are perfect for this. I love the individual servings. My recipe was based on the following recipe but altered quite a bit.
Round Turkey Loaves
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pound ground turkey
1 carrot, shredded
1 onion, shredded
1 zucchini, shredded
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1/2 cup instant mashed potatoes (dry state)
1/4 cup egg substitute
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper Method:
Cook onion and garlic in oil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place mixture in a large bowl to cool for 5 minutes. Add shredded vegetables.
Combine turkey, bread crumbs, egg, 1/4 cup of the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and pepper with onion mixture.
Press meatloaf into 4 round, 2 inch forms. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes.
Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
