Meatloaf report

Funwithfood asked me to report on a recipe I posted recently for Turkey-Apple-Sage Meatloaf (link below). I liked it a lot, though next time I might cut back a bit on the ginger. Even though I LOVE ginger, it was the main flavor in the dish; the sage was almost (but not totally) lost. I do love ginger, so maybe next time I'll just use more sage. :) Perhaps I used more than it called for. When it says 1-1/2" piece of ginger, that could mean any diameter, and I think my chunk was pretty large. Nonetheless, it came out incredibly moist, with a light and fresh taste. A very nice alternative to "regular" meatloaf. The apples never got "translucent" as the recipe said, but they were soft and yummy, esp. since they were basted with maple syrup at the end.

This recipe makes a large meatloaf, so there are plenty of leftovers for sandwiches tomorrow. I'll be interested to see how it tastes cold, and after letting the flavors meld a bit more.

Definitely worth a try! By the way, I served it with a cauliflower-potato-garlic puree that was wonderful!
