Turkey Meatloaf with Spicy Tomato Jam 
Recipe from Country Living
  • 3 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon(s) olive oil
  • 1/2 pound(s) shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon(s) finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 3 tablespoon(s) diced roasted red peppers
  • 2 pound(s) ground turkey (1 pound each white and dark meat)
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) bread crumbs
  • 2 clove(s) (medium) garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 1 teaspoon(s) ground ginger
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 can(s) (14.5-ounce) diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon(s) crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoon(s) balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup(s) light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) allspice

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Sauté mushrooms until just beginning to brown, about 6 minutes. Season with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper and 1/4 teaspoon thyme. Continue to brown mushrooms, stirring, about 6 minutes more. Stir in roasted red peppers. Transfer mixture to a plate and let cool.

2.Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix turkey, bread crumbs, garlic, sage, ginger, half the onion, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 2 teaspoons thyme. Using your hands, pack half the turkey mixture into a 5-by-9-inch loaf pan. Top with an even layer of mushroom mixture. Cover with remaining turkey and pat down. Bake for 40 minutes.

3.Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat remaining oil and cook remaining onion until softened, about 8 minutes. Add tomatoes, crushed red pepper, vinegar, brown sugar, and allspice; simmer over medium heat for 30 minutes.

4.Remove meatloaf from oven and spread 3/4 cup tomato jam on top. Return to oven and bake until meatloaf reaches 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 30 minutes more. Let cool in pan, about 10 minutes. Turn out and slice. Serve with remaining tomato jam on the side.
