mondaymunchiesOh, hush.  You LOVE meat loaf.  At least, you’re going to love Spicy Turkey Meat Loaf.  It’s like no meat loaf you’ve ever had before!

Spicy Turkey Meat Loaf


2 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey

1 medium onion, chopped

3 eggs

1/2 cup skim milk

2 tsp. lemon juice

1 tsp. dried basil

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/2 tsp. pepper

2 cups soft whole wheat bread crumbs (about six slices)

1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach: thawed and squeezed dry

3/4 cup Texas Habanero Salsa

1/4 cup Texas Berry Medley Pepper Jelly

1/4 cup Texas Passion Pepper Jelly

What to do:

Dump everything except the Texas Passion Pepper Jelly in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.  Don’t be afraid to use your hands.  Shape the mixture into a large loaf or several smaller loaves; I put mine in a large bread pan.  Bake, uncovered, for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.  When the meat thermometer reads 165 degrees, remove from oven and brush with Texas Passion Pepper Jelly.  Let it “set” for about twenty minutes, slice, and serve.  If there is any leftover, it’s even better the next day.  Makes a great sandwich, too.
