Ground turkey is not my favorite protein, not by a long shot. But I know many people adore the stuff. For its low fat, high protein content, it’s hard to beat. The difference between it and ground beef is startling. A mix of dark and white ground turkey saves 154 calories and 20 grams of fat over an identical sized serving of beef. My problem is that most of the time I don’t think ground turkey holds a candle to the flavor of its alternative. The exception that proves the rule is this incredible meatloaf. It’s full of flavor in the loaf itself with its layer of shitake mushrooms and roasted red peppers. And then there’s the incredible Spicy Tomato Jam that tops it. So good! And it looks as good as it tastes. Altogether this is well worth cooking. I’d even go so far as to say I might serve it to guests. Although I’d really rather have extra leftover because I love a great meatloaf sandwich and this meatloaf makes a great one.
