FoodQT : Turkey Loaf

A great Sunday dinner is best way to start the beginning of the week. It's back to normal routine, waking up early, kids going to school, and so on. I wanted to make a comfort dish, but not so heavy on the stomach. I went for turkey loaf.  It's light, healthier, and more flavorful.  This meal  cost $4.50 for a family of 5, with some leftover for tomorrow.

Supplies :
1 lb of ground turkey, I used Jennie-O.
1/2 yellow onion, diced
4 baby carrots, diced
2 TBSP Butter
1 TBSP garlic
1 tsp Italian seasonings
Salt and Pepper
1/4-1/2 c of water
Pepperidge Farms herb stuffing only use half of large package

For topping:
 1/2 cup of ketchup
2 TBSP of yellow mustard
1 tsp of vinegar
1/4c of Turbinado sugar
Parsley flakes

1.  In a saute pan, add butter and saute veggies until tender.

2. In a shallow bowl,  add ground turkey, season aggressively. Add stuffing, veggies, and eggs.

3. Give a big mix, then add half of water, give a bother big mix, and add the rest.  Keep mixing until everything is incorporated.

4. Shape into loaf, add a divet with spoon. Cover with foil cook for 30 mins at 375F. Add ketchup mix into divet, bake for 5 mins.

* I added loaf on a roasting rack, so if wouldn't have a soggy bottom, I added chicken bullion and fill it a little less than half the rack. This is so the loaf doesn't dry out beca use turkey is a lean meat.
