Talking Turkey

So after the boyfriend's campout this past weekend we ended up with a lot of extra turkey burger patties so I was in need of a recipe that would use up all this ground meat!

Luckily I'd seen a recipe in a magazine for a delicious looking Turkey Loaf so I decided to try and whip up something like this.  Please note, I have had NO experience making any type of a meat loaf - let alone a turkey loaf - but I digress...

The Recipe I ended up using turns out as follows:

I apologize for the next picture... I'm not sure there is a way to make Turkey Loaf look incredible -- but I promise it tasted that way!!

We paired the Turkey Loaf with some whole grain brown rice cooked up in our rice pot while chopped green & red bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, green onions, peas and spinach steamed on top!!  Cooking with a rice cooker is one of the BEST ways to make a meal -- the only downside is that brown rice takes over an hour and a half before it is done.  For this reason I usually make a big pot of this veggie rice the day before and separate it into mini tupperware containers to eat throughout the week.

Have you ever made a type of Meatloaf?  Are you a fan?

I'm laughing at your comment about the turkey loaf photo. Meatloaf, Turkeyloaf, or whateverkind of loaf usually aren't incredibly appealing to look at, but if they are made with the right ingredients, they can be delicious.

Note to readers (and people who have never before made a meat loaf!!) -- What scared me at first was the bit of liquid that had accumulated in my pan while the loaf cooked - apparently this is normal, simply drain out the liquid :)
