This meat loaf was shown with last week's Macaroni & Cheese recipe. I chose it because the chutney sauce adds just enough spice to tease the pallet.
• Cutting Board
• Knife
• Mixing Bowl
• 1 Medium Skillet
• Saucepan
• Thermometer
• 9 X 12 Baking Dish

For the Chutney
• ½ tbsp olive oil
• 1 medium onion, sliced
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 can whole tomatoes, chopped
• ½ cup roasted red peppers
• 3/4 cup ketchup
• 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
• Pinch of red pepper flakes
• Salt & black pepper to taste

For the meat loaf
• 1 tbsp olive oil
• 1 medium onion, chopped
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 2 tsp salt
• 1 tsp black pepper
• ½ tsp dried Rosemary
• 2 lbs ground turkey
• 1 lb pan sausage
• 1 cup bread crumbs
• 2 eggs, lightly beaten


For the Chutney: Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic until translucent, then add the tomatoes and peppers and cook for a few minutes more, until the tomatoes are saucy. Add the ketchup, Worcestershire & pepper flakes. Simmer for appx 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt & pepper.

For the meatloaf: Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic until translucent. Transfer to a mixing bowl and gently mix in 1 cup of the chutney plus the remaining ingredients. Don’t overmix. Dump the meat loaf into the baking dish and loosely form into a log. Cover with half of the remaining chutney. Bake the meat loaf for 60 to 90 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 160 degrees F. Serve the meat loaf with the remaining chutney.

HINTS: If you don’t want to use the sausage, you can use 3 lbs of turkey meat or lean ground beef. I like to use the sausage for added moisture. I chose Old Folks, Pork Country Sausage ( because I like their sausage. I rubbed the pepper with a little olive oil and put it on my grill until all sides blistered. This makes it easy to remove the skin. A grilled pepper will have a really sweet taste when you chop it up.
