Mini Turkey Loaves

Notes* Heat BBQ Sauce for 30 seconds with a TBSP water. Stir well right before glazing turkey loaves. Alternatively, you can cook this like a traditional meatloaf in a loaf pan and cook for about 45 to 50 minutes. You can add half-strips of bacon across the top of the loaf. If you choose this method, I recommend brushing on glaze a couple of times throughout baking time.


Step 1: 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: 

Soak diced bread in 1 cup milk for about 10 minutes.

Step 3: 

While bread soaks, sauté onions and celery for 5 minutes or until onion is translucent and celery softened. Let it cool for about 5 minutes.

Step 4: 

Drain milk from bread and squeeze out excess milk from bread with your hands.

Step 5: 

In a mixing bowl, add turkey, egg, Worcestershire, Herban Legend, soaked bread, onion and celery.

Step 6: 

Mix thoroughly until everything is blended throughout.

Step 7: 

Prepare a sheet pan with foil and top with cookie rack.

Step 8: 

Lightly roll into about 8 balls and place on cookie sheet.


Step 9: 

With a little oil on your hands as you work, shape each ball into oblong shapes. Slightly flatten with the palm of your hand.

Step 10: 

Place one strip of bacon on each loaf.

Step 11: 

Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or until turkey meat reaches internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

Step 12: 

Pull out of oven and set oven to broil.

Step 13: 

Brush on generous amount of BBQ Sauce and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

DO NOT OVERCOOK or turkey will dry out and bacon will burn.

Serve over rice or mashed potatoes.
