Thanksgiving Turkey Meatloaf
Okay, I’m kinda early on the whole Thanksgiving thing, BUT, this is my day people and November starts the whole thing! Being born on this great holiday, I could eat turkey almost every day of the week. Husband on the other hand is not so enthusiastic :( I do have to say though, I had to beat him out of the kitchen that night just so I would have at least a little left over for sandwiches the next day as he thought this simple, no-brainer recipe was just up his alley………..
I personally, liked it better cold the next day ( but you could warm it up if ya gotta) as the flavors seem to come together more to make an awesome tasting sandwich as it tastes like turkey and stuffing all rolled into one. The only thing missing that first night was some gravy since the meatloaf didn’t give me the necessary drippings needed and I did not want to use an alternative of thickened chicken broth, oh no not this old gram, give me the real thing! Oh hell, maybe after Turkey Day, I’ll make another one since Kenny did say I could make this any old time………….
- 1 lb ground turkey
- ⅔ cup dried bread chunks and crumbs, chunks about ¼ inch in diameter
- ¼ cup diced onion
- ¼ cup diced celery
- 1 teas Bell's seasoning
- 1 large egg
- Mix all ingredients well and place in a greased baking dish.
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 to 1-1/2 hours depending on how you shape the loaf.
I did also serve this up with some homemade riced potatoes, baked acorn squash, cranberry sauce and of course, last but not least, crescent rolls for Husband. Just can’t get enough TURKEY and Kenny can’t get enough bread! Enjoy, enjoy and come back soon!
