When the days start to turn a bit cooler and the nights get a bit longer, it’s time to crank the heat in the kitchen and start cooking some yummy, aromatic meals. This delicious Turkey Meatloaf recipe not only warms up your whole house, but it’s a warming comfort to your nose and palate as well. No matter what the season, a traditional turkey meatloaf is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, simply because it’s just one of those well-loved comfort foods that make any meal a winner. You can serve it up with a batch of creamy whipped potatoes, baked beans, roasted vegetables, or all of the above. This meatloaf recipe also makes the ideal potluck item because it serves up to eight people at a time. Bake two of these babies and you’ll be ready for a party. It only takes ten minutes to prepare and an hour to cook, so you can just mix the ingredients, pop your raw loaf in the oven, and go about your business til it’s done. Another possibility is to bake two or three batches, allow them to cool, and then freeze the ones you won’t need right away; that way, you’ll have a few no-fuss meals prepared for later in the week, on those days when you are particularly busy.
Turkey is a wonderful source of protein and contains a number of nutrients that will fortify this dish into a perfectly healthy one for your family. It’s very high in selenium, high in phosphorus, iron, and riboflavin, and it even contains vitamin C. Combine these with some of the nutritive properties of the other ingredients, and you’ve got a healthy main meal recipe in the making. Take the green bell pepper, for example. One green pepper, as this recipe calls for, is very high in vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, manganese, and dietary fiber. It’s also high in magnesium, iron, thiamin, and niacin. When gathering your ingredients together, it’s a good idea to choose fresh organic sources whenever possible. Organic produce is certified to ensure it does not contain any pesticides or herbicides and has not been grown in contaminated soil. When working with any kind of meat products, especially poultry, you will want to keep special safety measures in mind, such as washing hands well before and after handling. Wash your utensils in hot soapy water after use and wipe down all surfaces the meat has come into contact with. Be sure to bake this meatloaf recipe at the recommended temperature for the optimum amount of time, so you will know it’s fully cooked before enjoying it at your dinner table.
