With Christmas just around the corner (I know… I can’t believe it either!!), it’s time to start thinking about food – of course!
I’ve made this Thermomix Turkey & Cranberry Meatloaf quite a few times now (and not just at Christmas!) and it’s absolutely delicious. It’s also a lot cheaper than buying a turkey roast from the supermarket. PLUS it makes great leftovers for Boxing Day! It’s great served hot or cold – either with your traditional-style roast vegetables or a beautiful fresh salad.
This will take you no time at all to prepare and once it’s in the oven, feel free to kick back with a glass of wine and a magazine and congratulate yourself on your Martha Stewart-like cooking skills!
- 1 kg turkey mince
- 1 egg , lightly beaten
- 1 small brown onion , grated
- 1 apple , peeled and grated
- 2 garlic cloves , crushed (or 2 tsp of minced garlic)
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves
- 3/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
- Salt and pepper to season
- 3/4 cup cranberry sauce , melted
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius (160 if using fan-forced).
Grease and line a 14cm X 21cm loaf pan with baking paper (making sure that the edges of the paper overhang).
Mix the turkey mince, egg, onion, apple, garlic, parsley, bread crumbs, salt and pepper in the TM bowl on Reverse Speed 3 for 30-60 seconds or until completely combined - use the spatula to assist.
Firmly press the meatloaf mixture into the loaf tin.
Place half of the cranberry sauce into the microwave for 30-60 seconds or until melted and lightly bubbling.
Gently spread the sauce over the top of the meatloaf.
Cook for 1 hour or until completely cooked through.
Remove the pan from the oven and while still warm, melt the remaining sauce and spread over the top.
Remove the meatloaf from the pan, cut into slices and serve.
