1 TBS. Olive oil
1 carrot, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped and seeds removed
1 slice white or wheat bread
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup PLUS 2 TBS tomato sauce
1 1/4 lbs. ground turkey, lean, but not 100 percent. Loaves wont be as juicy. Use 7 percent fat.
1 large egg
1 tsp. dried sage
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350. In a large skillet, heat oil over low. Add carrot and bell pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until veggies are tender. About 10 minutes. Transfer veggies to a large bowl. Crumble bread; add milk and 2 TBS. tomato sauce and stir to combine. Let it cool completely.
Add turkey, egg and sage; season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, gently mix to combine. Divide meat mixture into four equal parts. Gently shape each into a 3 by 4 by 2 loaf on a rimmed baking sheet, leaving ample space in between.
Rub remaining 1/4 cup tomato sauce evenly over top of loaves. Bake until for about 35- 40 minutes.
