Meatloaf with a delicious twist

Often when you think of meatloaf you think of your standard beef and ketchup mixed meal. However, tonight with a pound to ground turkey in my fridge begging to be cooked and not tossed in the trash, I knew I needed to cook - and I had planned to make a second helping of Doron’s Turkey Meatballs with Golden Raisins and Pine Nuts after making a delicious first helping at our book club. However, when we got home it was already nearly 7pm and the thought of making meatballs and standing over a hot skillet cooking them in the house that was 80' did NOT sound like fun.

But since the turkey was on it's final day of survival... something had to be done and those meatballs were REALLY calling my name. So I decided to make it a meatloaf! Followed the recipe just the same - with the exception of "cook in hot skillet with oil" I tossed it into a bread pan and cooked at 350' for 50 minutes. Slice and serve. I of course still made the lemon cumin yogurt sauce and served it with it. It was delicious.

I think I'll make this dish even more now that I know that it tastes just as delicious in meatloaf form. If you need inspiration for recipes, I really recommend Molly's blog, Orangette.
