I found a similar recipe and have tailored it to my tastes. It comes out great every time and is a favorite in my house.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 - 2 lbs. Ground Turkey Meat
(dark will always taste better but either is fine)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 carrots
2 celery stalks
1 small onion
(or Trader Joe's has a ready made mirepoix)
1/2 cup of bread crumbs, panko is fine
3 big spoonfulls of light cottage cheese
A liberal amout of fresh, chopped thyme
Fresh chopped parsley
A few dashes of cayanne pepper
Salt & Pepper


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Cook the mirepoix in the olive oil till the veggies are tender. (10 min)

Set aside to cool.

In a bowl combine the turkey, bread crumbs, cottage cheese and cooked vegetables and mix lightly with your hands.

Add salt and pepper.

Add most of the thyme.

On a cookie sheet, form the mixture into 2 loaves with your hands.

Sprinkle the loaves with a little more of the thyme, the parsley, salt and pepper and the cayanne.

Bake in the upper part of the over for 35 minutes.
