Mouth Watering Recipe for Turkey and Chicken Loaf

The Meatloaf

I have never been a fan of meatloaf, so when I was given this recipe, I was skeptical. But I soon found out there was no need to be. Just writing this down makes my mouth water. This is another of those recipes that's a little involved. Even though it takes a few steps, it is well worth it. It is a little easier to make than my, "A SMOKED TURKEY THAT WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO "SMACK YO MAMA," recipe.

These measurements are only suggestions, this recipe makes a small loaf.  So the measurements can be altered to fit the size of your family size.

MEAT MIXTURE

  1. 1 lb. ground turkey
  2. 1 lb. ground chicken
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 1 cup bread crumbs
  5. 1pkg. Onion soup mix
  6. 1 tsp. salt
  7. 1 tsp. pepper
  8. 1 box frozen spinach
  9. 1/2 cup sour cream

TOPPING

  1. 1 tbs. Italian Seasoning
  2. 1 lg. can whole tomatoes
  3. 1 sm. can tomato sauce
  4. 1 sm. can tomato paste
  5. 1 tbs. sugar
  6. 1 tsp. salt
  7. 1 tsp. red crush pepper
  8. 1 tsp. parsley or fresh, sprig
  9. 1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
  10. 1/2 cup onion chopped
  11. 2 tsp. basil or fresh

The topping can be altered to your taste, and I usually do.

Use two medium bowls to mix turkey and chicken separate. Add half ingredients (except sour cream and spinach), to turkey and chicken: mix well. Mix sour cream & well drained spinach in a small bowl. Spread turkey to a square loaf greased dish, add spinach & sour cream, cover with chicken, finally adding the topping.

Bake in 350 degree (Fahrenheit) preheated oven

What a cool and unique twist on a recipe that's as American as Apple Pie. I've never been a fan of meat loaf as well, but this new twist makes me want to try it out again. I'm bookmarking this one fastfreta. Thanks!

Fastfreta it has inspired me to make it. I just saw the movie Julie & Julia and the receipes used from Julia Childs Book was inspiring. I think you should start a cook book !!!!!

Thank you shyonegb, although I like to cook I don't think that I have enough diverse recipes to write a cookbook. But I won't rule anything out. Thanks for the encouragement.

I am so excited to hear from you two. Please let me know how this turns out. It's always one of my favorite dishes, when I can find ground chicken. That's hard to find here. I hope you have success in finding it. Thanks Ladybird33 and Rebecca E., hope to hear from you soon.

Wow! This sounds good. I am not a lucky meatloaf maker, so will bookmark this page and give it a try. But will use ground turkey-have never seen ground chicken, but hopefully that will work out! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

frogyfish, you're right it is hard to find ground chicken, but when I do I buy enough to freeze for future recipes.

Thanks habee, My mouth is watering also, because I'm on a strict diet (for health reasons), and can't eat it at this time. Not to worry I'm doing fine, thanks for asking.
