Sweet Potato-Turkey Meatloaf Recipe
Mashed sweet potato mixed into a tasty ground turkey meatloaf adds special sweetness to the blend of onion, garlic, honey barbeque sauce, ketchup, and mustard seasonings.
The secret ingredient in this flavorful turkey meatloaf is quinoa. Quinoa is nuttier than breadcrumbs and improves the texture of the meatloaf.
Hmmm. What did I do wrong? The meatloaf came out more like a pate - slices would not hold together. This made the children verrrrry suspicious! Perhaps the size of the sweet potato makes a difference? Admittedly I used a pretty big sweet potato, but I didn't expect the consistency of *gulp* raw ground meat. All of this being said, the taste of the meatloaf was really quite good - even for those who don't love the taste of ground turkey. Maybe the original contributor of this recipe (or someone who's had success) could suggest a measured amount of sweet potato?
OK! The texture is odd, but if you have cooked with ground turkey you know it is not like ground beef. I left out all the wet ingredient except maybe 3 tbs. of tomato sauce. I put a generous amount of ketchup on top along with shredded pepper jack cheese. I used 1 cup oats instead of bread and added half a green bell pepper chopped. I DID NOT whip the sweet potato, instead I cooled them down after boiling and just mushed everything together with my hands.It turned out great and my 2 year son and my husband both liked it. A great healthy alternative to beef meatloaf.
