Passover Week: Turkey Meatloaf

Last night I headed out with the girls for a last hurrah before M goes about bringing her second son into the world.

We sat drinking and talking and celebrating, while our husbands and children were stuck at home without us.

The Horse Whisperer and I left our men prepared with dinner. Which was probably easier for her than me.  She left her husband and daughter breakfast for dinner - pancakes and bacon.  My meal had to be Passover friendly.  I opted for one of Thatboy's favorite meals - meatloaf.

Meatloaf is pretty Passover friendly to begin with.  The exception?  The breadcrumbs/oatmeal/whatever you use as a binder.  Luckily matzoh meal works perfectly for this.

The verdict?  A meatloaf that's Passover friendly and pleases even the littlest member of the family.  Rumor has it, my little guy had seconds.

Passover Turkey Meatloaf
1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 lb ground turkey
1/4 cup matzoh meal
1 egg white
1/2 cup ketchup, divided
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper
  1. Heat oven to 350. Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat.  Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is translucent. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the onions and garlic with turkey, matzoh meal, egg white, 1/4 cup ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and salt.  Shape mixture into a loaf and place in a loaf pan.
  3. Spread remaining ketchup over the top and bake for 1 hour.
