|1 pack||Bell's Meatloaf Mix; * see note|
|1 pounds||Fresh ground turkey|
|1 cup||Celery; chopped fine|
|1 small||Onion; chopped, optional|
|3||Cloves garlic; chopped, optional|
|1||Egg OR; optional|
|6||Strips turkey bacon (or more)|
|Olive oil OR nonstick cooking spray|
*NOTE: If you can not find Bell's meatloaf mix, substitute up to ¾ cup bread crumbs, 1 tablespoon dried parsley, ¼ teaspoon each basil and thyme. Mix all together and reserve. 1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Follow directions on the meatloaf mix package to reconstitute OR use alternate mix found in the note above.
2. Mix in turkey, celery Add onion, garlic, egg if desired. If using the alternate meatloaf mix, add that to the turkey mixture and mix well. 3.
Form meat mixture into a loaf slightly shorter than the length of the turkey bacon. 4. Place bacon strips lengthwise over the loaf all the way around it so that it is encased in the strips. Use toothpicks, if necessary to secure ends. 5. Spray a cooking rack with the nonstick cooking spray or use the olive oil to coat. Place rack onto a cookie sheet that has sides.
Place turkey loaf on the rack. Bake one hour at 450 degrees until the outer bacon is very crisp. Typed by Lynn Thomas. Recipe by Tom Orton. Tom's notes: This is kinda plebian, but makes a very good low fat meatloaf..I have found in that in the bottom of the pan is about 1 tbsp. of fat. I like to serve this with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed spinach with tarragon. Lynn's notes: I made this 2-10-97. I used all of the optional ingredients and this was the best turkey loaf I've ever tasted. When cooked, the loaf resembles a football and would be good served at a Super Bowl Party.
