Despite the numerous positive reviews and having had this recipe printed since 2012, this meatloaf never made it into my rotation until this past week. And OMG, I was so pleasantly surprised how much I loved this dish.
We have our favorite meatloaf recipe- It's awesome, and no other meatloaf has been able to take it out of its #1 spot. But this meatloaf by Giada- it's right up there. It's a toss-up which one I would say would be my favorite.
The meatloaf is moist and packed with flavorful. I could go on and on, but really- you need to make this. A big thanks to D who made this meal for my birthday :)
- 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup dried parsley
- 1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil
- 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
- 4 Tbsp milk (we used skim)
- 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1-1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 1-3/4 lb ground turkey (we use 93% lean)
- Place rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, stir together the breadcrumbs, dried parsley, chopped tomatoes, garlic, eggs, milk, feta, kosher salt, and pepper.
- Add the turkey, and gently stir to combine, being careful not to overwork the meat.
- Carefully pack the meat mixture into a loaf on your parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees (about 45 minutes.)
- Remove from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes.
