Turkey Cordon Bleu Meatloaf
Don’t know why, but we have been on a ground turkey thing lately! This one was actually Husband’s idea with wife, moi, adding her own little touches to it, as always, ha ha……… I do have to say it came out pretty damn tasty and they made a great sandwich the next day whether you have them cold piled high with lettuce and tomato or heated up. Now the heated up part is excellent if you slap it over a piece of toast and then pour some of the gravy over the top, YUM YUM! This is a very simple recipe and one I hope you will enjoy.
- 20 oz. ground turkey
- ½ cup dry bread crumbs, plus more for outer coat
- 2 eggs, one for the meatloaf and one for the coating
- ½ teas poultry seasoning
- ½ sea salt
- White pepper to taste
- Swiss cheese slices
- Ham slices
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup Swiss cheese shredded
- Mix together the ground turkey, bread crumbs, 1 egg, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper.
- Pat out onto a sheet of plastic wrap into an approximate 8" X 12" rectangle.
- Top with slices of ham and desired amount of Swiss cheese, leaving about an inch along the edges.
- Roll up from the smaller end, sealing together the edges to contain the cheese.
- Brush the outside with beaten egg and carefully roll into dry bread crumbs.
- Place in a lightly greased loaf pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 50 minutes or until done.
- For the gravy, melt butter in a saucepan over low heat, whisk in flour; slow add milk and stir until thickened.
- Add cheese and heat just until cheese is melted.
