Best served with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. A wonderful healthy meal. Lots of ingredients, but worth the effort.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute white onions, green onions, carrots, celery, green and red bell peppers, and garlic until soft, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, combine salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, nutmeg and cumin. Stir in eggs, ketchup and half-and-half. Blend in vegetable mixture from skillet. Add ground turkey, chicken sausage and bread crumbs. Mix well with hands, then shape into a loaf. Place into greased 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 70 minutes, or until cooked through and nicely browned. Let rest for 10 minutes, then serve with gravy.
  5. To make the gravy: Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute shallots with red and yellow peppers until tender, about 10 minutes. Season with thyme, bay leaf and black pepper. Stir in half-and-half, garlic, beef stock and chicken stock. Increase heat to high, and boil uncovered until liquid is reduced by 1/4, about 10 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and ketchup. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Stir in remaining tablespoon butter, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Strain gravy, discarding bay leaf and thyme before serving.

The meatloaf was fabulous - very tasty and very hearty. Loved all the vegetables. i didn't make the gravy as I didn't have time that day. I used a store gravy. I will try that next time since the main recipe was so good.

The taste of the meatloaf was pretty good although I was cooking for my family (4 kids) and all the kids thought it looked odd. Since it calls for ground turkey it turns out very pale and not looking like a typical meatloaf. My husband liked it and did make some sandwiches from the leftovers. Since the kids won't touch it I probably won't be making again.

Excellent flavor! A lot of work, but well worth it. I had trouble finding chicken sausage, so I used low fat Jimmy Dean sausage. Also came out too wet, so next time I will only use 1 egg. I did not strain the gravy, since it tasted fine with the cut up vegetables. I only discarded the bay leafs and thyme. Figured after cutting up more vegetables for the gravy, I wasnt' go to toss them, I'd eat them!
