Pad Thai Turkey Meatloaf

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
1 egg 
salt and pepper
olive oil

Pad Thai Sauce: (put all ingredients in jar and shake until smooth) 

1 lime
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.
