Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 20 mins

Cook: 1 hr

Ingredients
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 8 strips of bacon
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees . Place the red bell pepper, carrot, onion and garlic in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is finely chopped. In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped vegetables and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the vegetables, turkey, pork, bread crumbs, eggs, salt, Worcestershire sauce and ketchup and mix well. Place the meat mixture in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and, using your hands, form it into a loaf. Cover the loaf with the bacon strips. Bake the meat loaf, uncovered, until cooked through, about 1 hour.
  3. Pour off the melted fat, slice the meat loaf and serve.
