- 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 cup finely chopped onions
- 1 cup finely chopped celery
- 1 cup finely chopped green
or red bell pepper (or both)
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 2 pounds Ground Skinless Turkey Breast
- 1/2 cup chopped parsley
- 1 Egg
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 cup bottled chili sauce, DIVIDED
- 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs (optional)
- 1 cup fresh salsa (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°. Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet and add celery, onion, bell pepper and garlic. COOK, stirring occasionally, over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, bread crumbs, parsley, egg, thyme, salt, pepper, cooked vegetables and 1/4 cup chili sauce, and mix well.
Shape mixture into a loaf and place in a loaf pan or a 13 x 9 inch (or larger) baking pan. Brush top of loaf with remaining 1/4 cup chili sauce. Bake 50-60 minutes or until firm. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with salsa or catsup.
Note: Would you like to make your own bread crumbs to ensure freshness. Cut 3 large slices of whole wheat bread into 1-inch cubes and arrange in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 350° oven for 6 to 10 minutes or until cubes are thoroughly dry and tops turn a medium brown. Toss into your food processor and grind into a coarse powder. May be stored in refrigerator in a tightly sealed container for several days. Makes 1 cup.
