Liana’s Favorite Recipe - Turkey Loaf with Cranberry Sauce
- 11/2 lbs. ground turkey
- 1/4 c. chopped onion
- 1/2 c. grated carrot
- 1/4 c. chopped celery
- 1 c. dried breadcrumbs
- 1/2 c.chicken broth
- 1/2 t. dried sage
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1/4 t. pepper
- 1 c. cranberry sauce, at room temp.
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the cranberry sauce and mix well. Turn the mixture into a lightly greased 9 x 5 loaf pan and gently pat down. Bake until the loaf is firm and the top is lightly browned, about 1 hour. Spread the cranberry sauce on top of the loaf and let stand in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
Serves 6. We like to deliver this with a salad and brown & serve rolls.
Liana’s Transport Tips
When delivering meals, have them packaged ready to put into the freezer with directions on top for frozen & thawed cooking - that way if it needs to be frozen, there is one less step for the family.

Liana’s Meal Disaster
Once, I forgot the cooking instructions... I think it's a great idea to have the family's email address in order to send the instructions and recipe. Then, the family will have an email address for a "Thank You" and the recipe, should they want to make it again.
