I've made many a meatloaf in my day, but I had never thought of putting squash in it before. However I swear, you can google any two ingredients and a recipe will pop up, which is exactly what I did last night. By adding butternut squash (cooked in bacon, onion and sage) to this meatloaf, the flavors are off the chart. And now I talk like Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
I used this recipe and made some minor changes. Instead of pork, I used ground turkey, I skipped the red pepper flakes (in case my kids wanted to try it, hahahaha, they did not), I didn't use an egg because I didn't have one (it turned out just fine), and before cooking it I topped it with a balsamic/ketchup combo (which I highly recommend doing). By the way, I like to use my hands to form the loaf and cook it on a baking sheet vs. a bread pan. I think it makes the exterior nice and crispy, which I love. I plan on turning it into a sandwich for lunch. Is it lunchtime yet??
