So I had a bunch of ground turkey that was about to go bad, and I was not in the mood for sloppy joes, so I randomized a meatloaf recipe:
Start with bigass mixing bowl.
1 pkg ground turkey
1 lb ground beef (again… it was there)
1 cup italian breadcrumbs
several dashes worcestershire sauce. seriously. go crazy. (i think it came out to 1 or 2 tablespoons)
half a large red onion, chopped fine
3/4 c liquid (I had about half a cup of chicken marinade left over, so I used that and added water to make 3/4c. I bet you could use broth too)
several dashes assorted spices to your taste (parsley, garlic powder, dry rub, etc etc)
mix it all up. your hands will get disgusting.
grease up a 9×13 casserole dish (PAM cooking spray to the rescue!)
Dump meatpile into dish, form into basic loaf/log shape. This is a WET loaf mix, so it won’t look perfect. Don’t worry about it.
Glaze the top. Most meatloaf recipes I’ve seen use a ketchup/brown sugar type glaze, but I was lazy and out of ketchup, so I just used some Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce (I think I had the honey barbecue flavor). Bake at 350% for 1 hour or until cooked all the way through.
This is a very fluffy loaf; it’s not anywhere near as dense as the meat bricks I often see. Each has their good qualities, I love dense meatloaf too, but this recipe was a really great way for me to get rid of some stuff I had lying around the fridge that needed to go.
Goes great served with more BBQ sauce, or any Gonzo mash.
I think next time I do a randomloaf, I’ll leave off the glaze entirely and make up a mushroom gravy. Mmmmmm mushroom gravy.
