Scrumptious Thanksgiving Meatloaf

One of the best things about Thanksgiving is the aroma of turkey roasting in the oven. This turkey meatloaf has the same wonderful aroma as the turkey and it is a lot easier and quicker to make. I especially enjoy the added sweetness of apple. My family loved it, and I really hope you do too.

Ingredients

1
chopped apple
1/4 c
minced onion
3/4 c
dry bread crumbs
2
chopped celery stalks
2 Tbsp
oil
2
eggs
1/4 c
milk
1/2 c
romano cheese, grated
1 1/2 tsp
poultry seasoning
1/8 tsp
red pepper
dash(es)
salt and black pepper
1/4 c
colby cheese
1 lb
ground turkey

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Melt the butter in a frying pan. Saute the minced onion, and chopped apple ( I used a Cortland Apple. which is a red apple, and on the tart side)and chopped celery in the butter until the onion is transparent. I put the onion, celery and apple in my mini food processor. Just so they are uniform chopped pieces.
2
In a large bowl, mix the apple mixture with the eggs, breadcrumbs, milk and turkey. Add the poultry seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste depending on your individual preference. I then added a pinch of red pepper.
3
Blend the ingredients well, and then add to a loaf pan. Cover the top of the loaf with the grated colby cheese. Cheddar would work just as well.
4
Bake for 45 minutes. Your kitchen will smell wonderful!
Serve and enjoy!
