Turkey Meatloaf Marsala

Ingredients

20 oz pkg lean ground turkey
1 egg
1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1 Tbsp garlic powder
big handful fresh parsley, chopped
salt & pepper
For the Sauce:
10 oz pkg baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 heaping Tbsp flour
2 cups marsala cooking wine

Preparation

1
Oven at 375 degrees.
2
In a bowl add the ground turkey, egg, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, parsley and a bit of salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
3
Place into a baking dish and form into a loaf. Drizzle a bit of olive oil over top and bake for 30-35 minutes. Ground turkey should be cooked to an internal temp of 165 degrees. It can be removed at 160 and will rise the 5 degrees while resting.
4
While the meatloaf is cooking you can make the sauce. In a sauté pan over medium heat, add the olive oil, butter and mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms are golden brown.
5
Add the flour to the mushrooms and toss just to coat. Add in the marsala cooking wine and simmer for 20 minutes on medium low/low until thickened and deeper in color. If you have some extra chopped parsley go ahead and add some into the sauce.
6
Pour the sauce over the sliced meatloaf and enjoy!!

 



About

Meatloaf... American classic but sometimes a bit blah. I admit, when it comes to meatloaf I tend to just go basic Italian or BBQ but I wanted to venture out and decided to go the marsala route! I love chicken marsala so figured that the simple sauce would be wonderfully delicious over top meatloaf too.

The marsala sauce I make is REALLY basic and tastes great. The key to the sauce is to let it simmer for a while to allow it to thicken and let the flavor concentrate. The meatloaf is kept very basic here too, allowing the flavor or the sauce to shine. I served Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Bundles & Cauliflower Puree along with this meatloaf. The meal looked like it should have been in a restaurant but its a simple meal to put together!
