Turkey Meat Loaf with Spicy Tomato Chutney

Rather than using a deluge of ketchup to keep this meat loaf from drying out in the oven, we make an antioxidant-packed chunky tomato chutney to keep this as tender and moist as any you’ve ever tasted. And use the leftovers to make our classic Meat Loaf Sandwich.

how to make it

step 1

For the chutney, heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook the onion and garlic until translucent, then add the tomatoes and peppers and cook for a few minutes more, until the tomatoes are soft and saucy. Add the ketchup, Worcestershire, and pepper flakes and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

step 2

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

step 3

For the meatloaf, heat the oil in a medium skillet or sauté pan over medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic until cooked through but not brown. Transfer to a bowl and gently mix in 1 cup of the chutney plus the remaining ingredients. (Don’t overmix, unless you like tough meat loaf.)

step 4

Dump the meat loaf out into a baking dish and loosely form into a log. Cover with half of the remaining chutney.

step 5

Bake the meat loaf for 60 to 90 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 160°F. Serve the meat loaf with the remaining tomato chutney.
