Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground turkey in Steps 1, 2, and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 28-32 minutes.

  1. 1

    Start the Meatloaves

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.

    Combine panko, 3/4 the ricotta (remaining is yours to do with as you please!), ground turkey, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl.

    Form into two equally-sized loaves and place in one half of tray.

    Bake uncovered in hot oven, 15 minutes.

  2. 2

    Add Vegetables and Bake Meal

    Carefully remove tray from oven. Top meatloaves with cheese.

    In empty side of tray, combine peas, caramelized onion jam, zucchini, and seasoned salt. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil.

  3. 3

    Finish the Dish

    Bake uncovered again until meatloaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 22-27 minutes.

    While meal bakes, combine demi-glace and cream sauce base in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until warm, 2-3 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven. Top meatloaves with demi-cream sauce. Bon appétit!
