Oh man, it's only March! That means we're (looks at fingers) eight months from Thanksgiving. But we want turkey (makes face, continues in a whiny voice) noooowwwww. Can there be no resolution to this craving? (Shakes head sadly.) Yes… (looks at recipe) ground turkey mixed with ricotta and meatloaf seasoning made into a perfect mini loaf. (Eyes light up.)

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) |

  • Chicken 165° F |

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions.

    Cut cauliflower florets into bite-sized pieces, if necessary.

    Trim zucchini ends, quarter lengthwise, and cut into 1/2" slices.

    Make a slurry by combining 1/2 cup water, demi-glace, and cornstarch in a mixing bowl.

  2. 2

    Bake the Meatloaves

    Thoroughly combine ground turkey, ricotta, half the green onions (reserve remaining for garnish), meatloaf seasoning, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in another mixing bowl.

    Place mixture on prepared baking sheet and form into two equally-sized, football-shaped loaves. Bake in hot oven until loaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 26-29 minutes.

    While loaves bake, make cauliflower mash.

  3. 3

    Make the Cauliflower Mash

    Bring a medium pot with 11/2 cup water, 1 tsp. olive oil, cauliflower florets, and 1/4 tsp. salt to a boil over medium-high heat.

    Stir occasionally until water is evaporated and cauliflower begins to sizzle on bottom of pot, 14-16 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Add sour cream and half the Parmesan. Mash until creamy (some lumps will remain). Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan.

  4. 4

    Cook the Zucchini

    After cauliflower has cooked 5 minutes, place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 11/2 tsp. olive oil. Add zucchini and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan and stir occasionally until crisp-tender, 5-7 minutes.

    Remove from burner and remove zucchini to a plate. Tent with foil to keep warm.

    Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook zucchini to medium-high heat.

    Stir slurry to reincorporate cornstarch.

    Add slurry and any accumulated juices from baking sheet to pan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping loaves with sauce and garnishing with remaining green onions. Bon appétit!
