Best Turkey Meatloaf Ever!

San Antonio Sam | Jun 14, 201608:06 PM     3

Superlatives aside - it's a really good meatloaf. The secret is mixing beef base in with the ground turkey - I use "Better than Bullion" brand. It's great in turkey burgers, too. You could substitute the Head Country Rub and Sauce for your favorites . .if your favorite was something other than Head Country, that is, which I personally couldn't see.. but anyway . . .here it is:

Best Turkey Meatloaf Ever Recipe:
1 lbs 99% lean ground turkey
1 lbs 80% lean ground turkey
6 eggs
1 medium onion
1 carrot
1 stalk celery
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbs Better than Bullion beef base
1 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs Head Country Championship rub
Unseasoned breadcrumbs (enough to reach consistency - see below).
Kosher salt to taste
Black pepper to taste

For the Glaze:
3/4 cup ketchup
3 tbs dark brown sugar
1 tbs Head Country BBQ Sauce

Put the onion, carrot and celery in a food processor and
puree. Remove from the food processor into a non-stick pan and
cook in a non-stick skilet over medium high heat to remove the water - about 5 minutes or so. Stir constantly. Set aside to cool

Add the meat and eggs into a bowl. Add the soy sauce, the beef base, the rub, the salt and pepper and the pureed veggies and the crushed garlic. Combine well.

Then add bread crumbs while working the meat until it just
reaches a consistency where you can mold it.

Mold it into a free-form loaf on a greased baking sheet and bake @ 350 for 1 hr or to temp

Glaze during the last 10-15 minutes of baking.

I've been getting better and better with my turkey stuff (health conscious family) but this is the best one yet .. and the only one for me, so far, that makes sandwich-worthy leftovers.

Hope you try it!
