1 (15.5-oz.) can stewed tomatoes with green peppers and onions, drained
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine first 8 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add ground turkey and sausage; combine mixture just until blended, using hands. Place mixture on a lightly greased rack in an aluminum foil-lined broiler pan; shape mixture into a 10- x 5-inch loaf. Top with stewed tomatoes, and sprinkle with brown sugar.
Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 35 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 165°. Remove from oven; let stand 20 minutes.
So this is one of those recipes that I'm not sold on the turkey. I followed the recipe to the T and it left a lot of watery run-off. Not crunchy and flavorful like it's ground beef counterparts. Flavor was ok, but nothing to write home about. Additionally this is a huge portion with this recipe, I could have used half the turkey to feed my family of 4. Not for us..
This meatloaf is the best meatloaf I have ever had. It's moist (rare for turkey meatloaf), full of flavor, and has great texture. Perfect for everyday meals, it takes a while to prepare, but well worth the wait and it makes great leftovers. It even stays moist through microwaving.
The only think I did different from the recipe was keep the onions and green peppers a little chunkier because I like the crunch. Don't be afraid of the stewed tomatoes on top, they end up tasting more sweet than anything.
The only thing I had a hard time finding was turkey meatloaf in bulk, besides that this recipe is great. Make it you will love it.
I made this last night for my husband. He loved it! Said it was better than my ground beef meatloaf. The sausage adds great flavor. The only changes I made was the addition of 1 tsp. chopped garlic and I cut the bell pepper very fine and sauteed it lightly before adding it to the meat mixture (helps keep it from coming back to haunt you). I will be making this often!
