Asian Meatloaf

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.
