Turkey Loaf

This is a good easy meal, and EXTREMELY cheap (like maybe $3). Turkey Loaf.

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 box of stuffing (I like the "cornbread" variety)
  • 3 slices of bread (I like to use a rye or wheat)
  • 1/3 cup of chicken stock
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Peppa

Combine the turkey, stuffing, bread (tear it up into quarter sized chunks), and chicken stock. Use your hands and really get in there, it takes some effort to get all the bread absorbed, add more stock if needed. On a well sprayed baking sheet form the turkey mixture into a "loaf" like shape, about 3 inches high and wide. Drizzle the olive oil over it, and sprinkle salt and pepper on top. This makes it all nice and crusty. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, I always like to use my meat thermometer to make sure it's at least 160 degrees internal temperature. I like bloody meat - but NOT bloody turkey. Use your bread knife to cut, top with a white gravy. (I make mine out of the same chicken stock.)

Today in an attempt to bake a cheesecake - I invented something new. I read a recipe in a magazine that I had been wanting to try, I swore it said 4 ounces of cream cheese, but it really said 4 packages of cream cheese. 4 packages of cream cheese equals 32 ounces. So I used only an eighth of what I really needed. It turned out very flat - so I call it cheesePANcake.
