Now I know it looks a bit odd, but it's really tasty. Even hubby the most dedicated red meat man was won over by this! I think the cheese and herbed crumbs give it that lift the mince needs. Add any sauce you like - I preferred BBQ but the frills liked tomato!
Our loaf made us dinner plus some lunches, so good value for money I think too - if there's only 3 of you in your family - cut the recipe in half, otherwise- enjoy!
2 pieces of bread or 1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs
2 sprigs fresh oregano or 1 tsp dried
10 medium fresh basil leaves or 1 tsp dried
1 sprig continental parsley
3/4 cup milk
1 kg turkey mince
1/2 large brown onion, finely diced
1 small carrot, grated
1 1/2 cups grated cheese
In a food processor, pulse bread with fresh herbs (or mix breadcrumbs with dried herbs). Add the milk, mix and set aside.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees c
In a mixing bowl, mix the mince, onion, carrot, eggs and soaked breadcrumbs, mix well and then lastly mix through the cheese.
Put the mixture into a greased loaf pan, cover tightly with aluminium foil and cook for about 45 minutes. Turn off the oven and allow to sit for about 5 minutes before slicing in the pan and then transferring slices to your plate.
Cover in sauce!.... mmm!
Do you cook with turkey mince? Tried my slow cooker Moroccan turkey meatballs perhaps? Turkey burgers are or is turkey for the turkeys?
