Turkey Sausage Meatloaf

Turkey sausage Meatloaf

1 lb Ground Turkey
2-3 Italian Chicken Sausage Links, removed from their casing
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1/4 cup Freshly Chopped Basil
1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
1/2 tsp Ground Pepper
1 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
4 cloves Garlic, minced
1/3 cup Zuchinni, chopped
1/2 cup Red Onion, diced
1/2 cup Mushrooms, chopped
1/3 cup Red Bell Pepper, diced
1/3 cup Kale or Spinach, chopped
1/3 cup Eggplant, diced
1 tbsp Butter
1 tbsp Olive Oil
2 Eggs, beaten
1 Cup Italian Bread Crumbs
6 oz Tomato Paste
1 tbsp brown sugar

1.   Chop all your fresh ingredients.  For the basil, I find it easiest to layer the leaves, then roll them like a cigar and then cut.  Combine in a large mixing bowl your meats, dry seasonings, fresh basil and garlic, worcestershire and balsamic.  Set aside.  In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter and olive oil.  Add in fresh vegetables with a pinch of salt and sauté for 3-5 minutes.  Set aside to cool.
2.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees
3.  Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
4.  Mix together in a small bowl tomato paste and brown sugar. Set Aside.
5.  Once the veggies are cooled, mix them into the meat with your hands until evenly distributed.
6.   Add in eggs and bread crumbs and mix until combined.
7.   Transfer to an 8x4x2 pan and top with Tomato paste & sugar mixture.
8.   Bake for 1 hour or so
