As well as being a tasty, tender meat loaf, this mixture does double-duty as turkey burgers as an alternative autumn supper.
Turkey Apple Meat Loaf
15 ml (1 tbsp) vegetable oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 medium apples (such as Empire, McIntosh, Cortland), peeled and diced
250 ml (1 cup) fresh breadcrumbs
50 ml (1/4 cup) chopped fresh parsley
1 kg (2 lb) ground turkey
1 egg, beaten
15 ml (1 tbsp) whole-grain mustard
10 ml (2 tsp) Worcestershire sauce
7 ml (1 1/2 tsp) salt
In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium. Add onion; cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic and apples; cook for about 3 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from heat. Stir in breadcrumbs and parsley.
In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, egg, mustard, Worcestershire and salt; stir in apple mixture until well combined.
Press turkey mixture lightly into a 22-by-12-cm (8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch) loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for about 1 hour or until digital rapid-read thermometer registers 74 C (165 F).
