Variation on gourmet turkey meatloaf

Tonight I made a turkey meatloaf again. No pictures today. When I cook these days I do things fast and furiously as I can’t stand for long. So no time to set up pretty pictures.

BUT! This turned out so good I wanted to share it.


1lb ground turkey

1 cup parmesan or other hard Italian grated cheese

3 eggs

2 cups brown rice

1/2 a cup of kalamata olive tapenade (the secret ingredient)

1 onion diced into tiny pieces and browned until very soft and then cooled for a bit

3 cloves diced garlic

1/2 cup milk

lots and lots of fresh ground pepper (I did not add salt as the tapenade and cheese have lots of salt)

Brown the onion ahead of time and throw all the other ingredients together. Mix well and put in loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or so.
