Turkey Meatloaf with a Kick

Filed in Gather Food Essential by on February 24, 2008 0 Comments

I made the most wonderful meatloaf the other night and my daughter and I though it also made the best meatloaf sandwiches. My MIL often puts mustard and cheese in the middle of hers and we like them that way too so I decided to try and make one healthier and with a kick. I didn't measure but here is pretty much what I did with approximate amounts. If your kids like meat loaf this would be a great way to sneak in some veggies.

1 pound lean ground turkey
1/4- 1/2 cup oatmeal (mix till it feels right)
1/4 cup catsup
1 egg
1 large chipotle in adobo (minced) with a couple teaspoons of the sauce (more or less, depending on your tollerance for heat)
2 slices 2% Swiss cheese
1 to 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons minced onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
1arge carrot shredded
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all except the Swiss and the Dijon and pat 1/2 into a loaf pan. Top with the two pieces of cheese to cover the meat and spread on the Dijon. Top with the other half of the meat mixture and bake at 375 for one hour or until browned and completly done. Let cool a few minutes before slicing. Great cold on meat loaf sandwiches.
