Yield: 9 Servings
|½ cup||Bulgur; soaked in|
|1 cup||Boiling water|
|1 \N||Onion; finely chopped|
|2 teaspoons||Olive oil or vegetable cooking spray|
|¼ teaspoon||Celery seed|
|½ teaspoon||Bonquet garni or other dried herb blend|
|1 \N||Leafy rib celery|
|2 tablespoons||Walnut pieces|
|¾ cup||Bell pepper strips; tri-color; frozen|
|8 ounces||Ground beef sirloin; 8% fat|
|1¼ pounds||Ground turkey breast|
|¼ cup||Egg substitute|
|¼ cup||Jerk sauce|
|½ cup||Bread crumbs; or as needed|
|2 tablespoons||Jerk sauce; for topping|
Soak the cracked wheat bulgur in the boiling water. While that is soaking, soften the onion in olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium low heat, covered for about 5 minutes. Season the onions with celery seed, your choice of herbs, and plenty of pepper.
Chop a carrot and a leafy stalk of celery; place in the bowl of a food processor. Add a handful or two of bell pepper strips (frozen or fresh) and walnut pieces. Process until coarsely chopped. Strain the bulgur.
In a large bowl or rimmed baking sheet, combine and knead ground beef and turkey with the chopped vegetables, bulgur, liquid egg and jerk sauce. Add enough bread crumbs to shape a loaf; the loaf should be fairly moist but hang together.
Put the loaf in a loaf pan (9x5) and reshape the loaf to form channel on the long sides. Bake in a 350F for 90 minutes or longer or until a thermometer reads 165F. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before slicing. Serves 9, 299 cals each and 24% cff (5g fat) >Tested by Pat and Bob Hanneman 11/20/98 Neighbors wanted to know what I was making that smelled so good. Now, that's a compliment.
