Emeril’s Meatloaf

Emeril has a recipe for turkey meatloaf in Sept Everyday Food. I haven’t had a lot of success with other people’s meatloaf recipes. I tend to like it the way I make it, but I have to say, Emeril won me over with this one!

1 tsp veg oil
4 oz turkey bacon, chopped
1/2 yellow onion
1 small green pepper,chopped
salt and pepper
1 garlic clove, minced,
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 lb ground turkey
1 1/4 cups chili sauce (sweet) or ketchup

As usual, I cheated a little since I didn’t have evaporated milk, so I just used milk. I also don’t like chili sauce so I used sweet and sour sauce.
You cook the onion and pepper then add garlic. Mix with all other ingredients, using only 2 tbsp of the chili sauce in the mix, placing the rest on top. Bake at 350 for an hour and 10 minutes.

I really liked the oats in it and the sweet and sour sauce was fantastic. The meatloaf was dense and moist and very flavorful. This is definitely a winner. It is falling apart in the photo, but it tastes terrific. It’s even better the next day.

    I am looking forward to next week’s challenge! I couldn’t do this one because I’m frantically trying to make and post my Daring Bakers challenge . . . Baked Alaska! Ack!

    I made Martha’s Baked Alaska and it turned out pretty well. The trick is having the blow torch to brown it with.

    Wow! That’s nuts!

  5. I like making meatloaf but it’s hard because my daughter is such a hard-core vegetarian these days and won’t eat it. I wonder if there is a vegetarian meatloaf recipe out there (maybe with ground zucchini, which I sometimes add with great success to pasta sauce?)
