The most wonderful thing about mealoaf is leftovers.

We finished the leftovers of the Turkey Meatloaf recipe tonight. Wonderful recipe. I added some chopped celery to the sauteed onion and swapped out basil for thyme. Everyone loved it.

It reminded me of the flavors of Thanksgiving and even had a bit of a sausage taste. Maybe that was the kelp.

Thanks for this keeper.

I tried to come up with a version that didn't have the kelp and the flaxseed for relatives who would never go in a health food store. Totally Blah! The kelp is vital in my opinion and horribly expensive, the local health food store only carries it in one pound packages. I think I'll make it for my extended family Thanksgiving on Nov. 20th.

I am lucky to have purchased a small jar from my health food store a while back. It was quite pricey but now I have a use for it! I should have kept it in the fridge but moved it there now. I can also pick up the layer of flavor the flaxseed adds. I agree the recipe is really elavated from these ingredients. My older son, the pickiest of picky, announced tonight what a great meatloaf it was! My husband disappointed me by asking "where's the ketchup" but I had to get over it. This meatloaf stands beautifully on its own and tastes like I am eating a Thanksgiving medley.

Nothing irritates a chef more than seeing somebody add salt/steak sauce/ketchup to his dish without tasting it first!

The first time I carried it to a yoga party the instructor did the following: Put a big slab on her plate, paused and asked "is this real meat?", then raked it off into the garbage, and washed her plate. An O vegan of course!

I don't know how you contained yourself!

Since we eat such high quality food I have a "no waste" policy. Anyone who is not sure what they would like (especially if one of my sons' has a guest over) they are to taste it first. I often start them with small portions since they can always have more but I am not watching this food get trashed! Mind you these people are young adults but I am not taking any chances so sometimes I have to treat them like children. Luckily we all have a sense of humor!

I made a habenero cheesecake for the next party.

If I'd be there my Oness would have come out! I'd said something the moment she headed for the trash can, you'd bet I'd had said something about wasteing food to the whole crowd.  Guess you're glad I wasn't.

Wow, that was extremely rude.     Very little goes to waste in our house either.

Forget about taking that Turkey Meatloaf to a potluck, I'm keeping it for myself    Made this last night, it's soooo good.  And easy!  I prepped veggies night before, assembled in morning then baked it when I got home from work.  One slice left over for lunch today.  

My local health food store sells kelp powder by the ounce, nice.

gulfcoastguy, thanks for posting the recipe.

You're very welcome. There are a lot of innovative recipes posted over the years on this forum. Brighid's Carrot Cake being one of my favorites.

Now that I think about it the thyme probably gave it that sausage taste.

Made this meatloaf again tonight. It's addicting!

I was thinking also the sage. Tonight it did not have as much of that sausage thing going. I didn't have spinach (think I used kale the last time) so I added chopped cilantro. Just love it!

Quoted from organicmom3
I'm VERY new here.....and I'm searching for something very simple to take to a potluck....what I mean by simple is easy and not too costly....BUT...I'd love to find something not just for my bloodtype (o) but would be at least fairly compatible to my dh who is a B.   Any suggestions?  I guess what makes this difficult is that it needs to feed us completely AND feed others.  We won't be able to eat much if anything that others bring....so I feel it needs to be a casserole or something equally filling and nutritious....so I don't want to just take a side dish of veggies or rice as I don't think that's enough to contain us through the evening.


What did you end up taking?

I took a roast with veggies....found the recipe here...I think it was all day crockpot roast?  Something like that.  It was very good.  I'm trying the meatloaf on Saturday.
