I don’t know about you, but this week I made a turn from “We’ve got this.” to “I’m SO ready to be DONE with this.”
So to help with the Stay at Home Blues, I whipped up a healthy spin on a Comfort Classic with Turkey Meatloaf made with Sweet Potato and fresh Thyme! It’s gluten free and SO delicious, even described as “addicting” by one of my teens, which you know can be a tough audience. So without further ado, I extend a big ol’ warm and fuzzy quarintine hug in the shape of this…
- Drizzle of Olive Oil
- 1 Chopped onion
- 1 teaspoons of salt (I prefer kosher or sea salt)
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper
- 1 Pressed Garlic Clove
- 1 Table Spoon Fresh Thyme
- 1 cup peeled and grated sweet potato
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire
- 2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
- 3 Pounds Ground Turkey
- Ground Pepper
Steps | Serves 4 | Prep Time 30 minutes / Cook Time 60 minutes-ish or 160 degrees
- Drizzle the olive oil into a large skillet and let heat (but not too hot)
- Add chopped onion and garlic, salt and pepper sauté until the onions are translucent but not brown.
- Add fresh thyme and sweet potato mixing constantly to release the herb’s flavor and keep the sweet potato from sticking to each other. Sauté for a couple of additinal minutes
- Remove the pan from heat, add the Worcestershire and Tomato Paste
- Once cool, add the ground turkey to the sauté mixture — this helps to not cook the meat — and mix until completely combined.
- On a baking sheet lined with parchment and using hands (or if raw meat creeps you out, a couple of spoons, to created a loaf shape with the meat.
- drizzle ketchup over the top and top with fresh ground pepper
- Pop into the oven at 400 degrees until the internal temp is at least 160 (approximatly 1 hour)
- When cooked to 16o degrees, remove from the oven and let stand (covered) for 10 minutes.
