🦃 Turkey meatloaf. 1/25/20

I tried all of my usual tricks to make this turkey loaf better but it is still a far cry from my beef meatloaf. I added abound 12 oz. of sautéed mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce, and even fish sauce to try to up the umami but it still came out rather insipidly sweet. I think ground turkey is not too bad as a ground beef substitute in stuffed peppers, chili, or spaghetti sauce but there is just not enough other flavors in meatloaf for it to stand in.

We we’re having our meatloaf with new potatoes and cole slaw but the turkey loaf took so long to cook that we ended up eating the cole slaw first. I keep the calories low on the coleslaw dressing by using equal amounts of light mayo and a Greek yogurt along with a little Dijon mustard, and cider vinegar. It is seasoned with salt, a little sweetener, and celery seeds.

The steamed new potatoes came out great. They look a little lonely without their coleslaw pal.
