It's simple, it's fast, and dear god it's delicious, it's Giada De Laurentiis' turkey meatloaf with sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese.
Sigh. Giada's so gorgeous. And I'll admit, I love the way she emphasizes Italian words.
So, here's the basics:
I'm starting to incorporate turkey more often into my diet when I can find it cheap. It balances great with outside flavors, and it can take two things that might not seem to go together (say, ginger and cinnamon) and help them work together. But more on that around Thanksgiving.
For now, here's the ingredients you'll need:
1 bread loaf pan, standard size (that is, 9 by 5 inches, but I've worked with smaller and it's fine, just adjust the cooking time accordingly)
I'm really starting to dislike using this stuff. If you can, cut a piece of parchment paper to the right size and stick it to the bottom of the loaf pan. Then it won't stick, the loaf will pull away from the sides, and it'll come right out.
2 tablespoons whole milk
It doesn't have to be whole. I use skim or even non-fat.
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
If you're feeling really brave? Chop up some basil, too, or leave out a bit of the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes and mix in some pesto.
