Average Betty creates a “man-loaf” sandwich from a turkey chipotle meatloaf for the National Turkey Federation (NTF) video library to show how ground turkey is versatile and tasty.
Sara O’Donnell, food blogger and creator of Average Betty, shows viewers how to create this simple, but tasty new recipe using turkey because of its natural ability to combine readily with different seasonings.
“Ground turkey is an ideal protein to spice up with the all the heat involved in a chipotle glaze,” said Sherrie Rosenblatt, NTF’s vice president of marketing and communications. “Average Betty, who is anything but average, takes it a step further by creating an innovative twist of turning the meatloaf into a creative sandwich, she affectionately calls a ‘man-loaf’.”
In the video, O’Donnell uses a pound and a quarter of ground turkey. The turkey is then seasoned with onion, garlic, jalapenos, diced tomatoes, less sodium soy sauce, ground cumin, chipotle chili powder, panko bread crumbs, an egg, and cracked pepper. O’Donnell then mixes all the ingredients in a bowl using her “meat hooks” – or hands – while reminding viewers to wash them thoroughly before and after working with the mixture. The ground turkey mixture is added to a loaf pan and gently patted to the form of the pan. The turkey meatloaf is then baked until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F as indicated on a meat thermometer.
