Steggles wanted me to get creative in the kitchen by using there Turkey Shortcuts range.
They delivered me a great selection of Turkey mince, Turkey Thigh Roasts, Chickens and Chicken Mince.
I decided I would be creative with their Turkey mince as it is sometimes a mince that is by passed by many but it is absolutely a beautiful meat that we have enjoyed in the past.
Meatloaf is perceived as a rather boring unimpressive meal, it’s generally considered a cheap slap together dish that won’t have people swooning all over it.
Well, this is a thing of the past. I may of made the most swoon worthy Meatloaf around.
It combines Turkey Mince with Beef mince to add some lightness and contrast flavour to what is normally a heavy meaty dish.
Why Turkey Mince you ask?
Turkey mince was found to be lower in kilojoules, total fat, and saturated fatty acids than other mince products compared in the report. Products analysed included lamb mince, extra lean beef mince and lean veal mince. The report identified the nutrients found in turkey are central to an ongoing healthy diet and lifestyle. Being high in protein, turkey is a valuable food to include in the diets of all Australians with a 100g serving providing more than a third of an adults daily protein requirements (more for children).

This beauty of a meatloaf packs in the vegetables and lots of natural flavours as well.

My favourite turkey dish would have to be BBQ Turkey Kebabs. Just so delicious. A crowd pleaser.
I’d love to cook a turkey and mushroom risotto, cause the multi cooker would make risottos much easier and less strenuous to cook!
Mmmm the turkey meatloaf looks knockout, I think it’s what I’m going to try next.
Your turkey meatloaf looks superb. I think that is my new favourite turkey dish!
Would love to try something different for the hubby and kids!
I adore a beautiful moist roast turkey breast
I’m not a fan of turkey �� would the recipe work well with beef? I do love steggles products
Taco’s made with Turkey mince… yum!!! Also have to say that my family is totally addicted to the Steggles Enchilada’s you can get now. They are delicious, we have them at least once a week! Thank you 🙂 Monique
Chow mein with turkey – lovely and lean with lots of flavour!
I would love to try a turkey pasta bake or turkey risotto!
I’d like to try turkey taco’s or little meatballs. I usually make them with beef or lamb mince but would be keen to try them with turkey.

I was looking for so e inspiration so think I’m going to try the meatloaf and the sausage rolls, both look delicious!!
We all love Turkey Enchiladas. Easy to make and totally delicious.
I usually make Warm Turkey Salad Asian Style with chili, cashews & lime dressing but I am going to try and make Turkey & Beef Meatloaf using your recipe because I think my little miss will love it. I love how there is a lot of hidden gems (aka vegetables) in it too.
Simple roast turkey
I love turkey mince in spagheti bolognaise. Its really nice to cook with, it breaks up really easily with a wooden spoon because its so tender, and the taste is nice. My family don’t even notice, and I’m able to give them a healthier choice. Big fan of chicken mince in place of beef now too.
