Been making plenty of comfort food lately and this is one from way back when Sara Moulton had her show, Cooking Live, on the Food Network. Turkey meatloaf. A bit on the sweet side, it's really moist and has a lot of flavor. Served it with Mashed Potatoes and Green Bean Almondine. I like saying that for some reason. Maybe because it rhymes? Green Bean Almondine.
Turkey Meatloaf with Cranberry Glaze
Source: Cooking Live with Sara Moulton, Food Network
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup mashed jellied cranberry sauce (canned)
2 pounds ground turkey
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup bread crumbs
3 eggs -- lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup diced red onions
1/2 cup chicken broth -- (just enough to moisten)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
For the glaze, spread the brown sugar over the bottom of a greased loaf pan and spread the cranberry sauce over the sugar. In a large bowl mix all the remaining ingredients until well incorporated.
Form the meat mixture into the loaf pan, laying out over the cranberry glaze. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour.
Green Beans Almondine
1 lb. string beans
2 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons slivered almonds
1 small shallot, finely chopped
Steam the green beans. Drain; let cool in a large bowl of ice water. Drain; pat dry, and set aside.
Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the almonds and saute in the butter until lightly browned; being careful not to burn them. Add the shallots and saute until they are translucent, about a minute.
Add the beans to the pan with the almonds and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper before serving.
