I love to play around with variations on meatloaf. My fiance LOVES Thai food and can mow down a jar of peanut butter in a couple of days if not monitored closely. So I was hoping he would really dig it if I put his favorite flavors into a meatloaf!
Pad Thai Turkey Meatloaf
1 lb. ground turkey
4 cloves garlic
1 white onion chopped 1 cup chopped carrots 1 inch fresh ginger
1 cup fresh basil
1 cup Japanese Panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper
Pad Thai Sauce: (put all ingredients in jar and shake until smooth)
3 tbsp. peanut butter
1 tbsp. fish sauce
1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp. sambol oleleck (Asian hot chili paste- get it at Fred Meyer)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Preheat oven 400 degrees.
Over medium-love heat saute in olive oil the onions, ginger, carrots, and add the garlic last. Pour this mixture into a large bowl with the ground turkey. Add the bread crumbs, egg, fresh basil, and 2 - 3 tablespoons of the Pad Thai sauce mixture. Form mixture into a loaf on a baking sheet.
Bake 25 minutes. Then, coat the top of the loaf with the remaining Pad Thai mixture. Bake another 20 - 25 minutes.
Let the loaf sit for 5 minutes once you remove it from the oven. Serve with your favorite veggies.

Good for you, Ty. I support your courage and hope you can be a role model...
Meghan Trainor (who sings "All About That Bass") steps up to the mic and belts out an AWESOME version of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off"! This is addicting! Check it out.
