This meatloaf is refined comfort-food at its finest.
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons avocado oil
- 1 1/2 cups diced white onions
- 2 medium sized garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons minced ginger
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 2 lbs ground turkey (I use lean white meat)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce
- 2/3 cup hoisin sauce
- 1/3 cup blackberry jam
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Combine sesame and avocado oil in a small sauté pan over medium heat.
- Add the onions, garlic, and ginger to the pan. Season with salt and pepper, and cook until the onions are translucent. Remove pan from heat and allow to cool.
- Combine the panko breadcrumbs and whole milk in a small bowl, and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, onion mixture, breadcrumb mixture, eggs, and soy sauce. Mix together until combined (don't over-mix).
- Spray 9x5 pan with avocado oil. Then put the meatloaf mixture into the pan and smooth out the top to make it even.
- Bake the meatloaf for 45 minutes.
- While the meatloaf is baking, combine the blackberry jam and hoisin sauce in a saucepan and heat up to mix. Set aside and keep this mixture warm until the meatloaf is ready.
- After 45 minutes, spread the hoisin mixture generously on top of the meatloaf and return to the oven for another 20 minutes (or until the temperature is 165°F.
- Remove the meatloaf and allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes out of the oven.
