And Now For Something Completely New – At least for me!


As you know, I keep struggling away with producing meatloaf.  This time I made one using half turkey mince (ground turkey) and half pork mince.  I have never cooked turkey before – amazing I know!  And certainly have never used turkey mince.  But there it was in the supermarket and it was even on special!

I mixed up the mince with some breadcrumbs, egg, salt, pepper, a squirt of tomato sauce (ketchup), some grated cheese and a sprinkle of tarragon.  I tried to mix it while not over working it.  I left it in the loaf tin to chill in the fridge.

Then turned it out onto the baking dish and topped it with a little more grated cheese and knobs of butter.

Baked at a moderate temperature for 45 minutes.  It was a good experiment – lighter than the meatloaves I have made with ground beef and the hint of tarragon was good with it.

  1. Sounds good. I cook with ground turkey quite a bit. I add cumin, chili powder and garlic powder and fry up little burgers. I serve them with avocado and salsa.

  2. I only cooked meatloaves in my handphone game - Tiny Chef, haha! Got to give it a try one day, worth the effort.

  3. Love the twists you tried on this meatloaf. I would have never thought of trying the ground pork with ground turkey. Sounds like it was a success!
