April Fools: Turkey Loaf "Cake"

Mr. Food

Makes 6 to 8 servings

2-1/2 pounds lean ground turkey breast
1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped
1 cup Italian-flavored bread crumbs
1 cup ketchup
2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 cups warm mashed potatoes
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 10-inch Bundt or tube pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, onion, bread crumbs, ketchup, eggs, salt, and pepper; mix well. Place in the prepared pan.

  3. Bake for 1 to 1-1/4 hours, or until the juices run clear; drain off any liquid and allow to sit for 5 minutes then invert onto a serving platter.

  4. "Frost" the meat loaf with the mashed potatoes and garnish the bottom edge with the cherry tomato halves.

NOTE: You might want to drizzle beef gravy over the mashed potato frosting to look like chocolate glaze. Feel free to decorate this main-dish "cake" any way you like. Happy April Fools Day!
