Finely chop onions and peppers and garlic
Place chopped veggies in mixing bowl
Pour a glass of chianti and enjoy :)
To save time it's fine to use already minced garlic. The flavor is still excellent, and your fingers won't smell for days after
Mix vegetables together prior to adding remaining ingredients
If you don't have breadcrumbs just chop up some bread...doesn't matter which type
Add breadcrumbs, eggs, and meat in bowl and mix well.
Now to season--sprinkle half of seasonings & mustard (enough to cover visible meat) then stir (think of folding) well. Repeat the seasoning process. In this way the entire batch is well seasoned.
Pour mixture into baking pan and let sit for a few minutes
Turn on smoker or pre-heat oven to 350 (Fahrenheit) if you do not have a meat smoker.
Place meatloaf in smoker or oven. As you see there is more room. See my guide on smoked prawns to see what I did and what you can do with the space.
Check on meatloaf - the liquid is the fat melting from the ground turkey. It should be smelling pretty good by now.
Et voila! Remove from smoker and let stand 5-10 minutes. Enjoy a savory dish that works brand new and as leftovers
