Bacon Wrapped Turkey Meat Loaf recipe, a pretty presentation of ground turkey meatloaf baked with criss-cropssed bacon in a 9x13 pan.
1/2red bell pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
1medium carrot, coarsely chopped
1medium onion, coarsely chopped
1/2cupPanko bread crumbs
4tablespoonsWorcestershire sauce, divided
12-15strips of bacon, I use Costco’s fully cooked slices
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the red bell pepper, carrot, onion and garlic in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is finely chopped.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the vegetables, turkey, bread crumbs, eggs, salt, 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce and 3 Tbsp. ketchup; mix well. Place the meat mixture in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish (spray with cooking spray first) and, using your hands, form it into a loaf. Mix together remaining 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce and 3 Tbsp. ketchup and spread on top of the meat loaf.
Cover the loaf with the bacon strips, weaving them across the top.
Bake uncovered, until cooked through, about 1 hour. Check it near the end and using a baster, remove the melted fat and juices.
