I’ve heard meatloaf get such a bad rap- not sure why, I’ve always been a fan. I used to ask my mom to make a big meatloaf for dinner with a side of mashed potatoes and corn. Here with this Asian-style meatloaf, I’ve taken the same idea of an easy to throw together dinner and made it a little less boring. I started with some lean ground turkey, and added veggies like chopped water chestnuts and scallions, and some spices like ginger and red pepper. I used some soy sauce, beaten egg, and panko breadcrumbs for binding and topped the whole thing off with some peanut sauce. Then it was baked in a loaf pan for about 1 hour. The result was an incredibly flavorful and tender meatloaf that I’m sure will be making its way into our weekly dinner rotation.
Serve with some shredded carrots and extra peanut sauce for dipping.
Nothing boring about this Asian meatloaf!
Mix all your ingredients besides the peanut sauce together in a large bowl. Nothing works better than your hands at evenly combining!
Press the mixture into a lightly greased loaf pan and top with some peanut sauce.

Let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before serving. Serve with shredded carrots and extra peanut sauce for dipping.
