I made a turkey loaf that was very dry. My husband was a trooper and ate it with added salsa on top. I decided to see if I can salvage it. What I did is saute onions and garlic, added chopped celery, chopped red pepper, canned mushrooms, a can of diced tomatoes with just a little bit of the sauce and a half a can of tomato paste and assorted seasonings. I then crumbled up the rest of the turkey loaf and mixed it in with the vegetables and tomatoes. I simmered it like that for a bit. Then I served it. It was delicious.
You can really add whatever veggies you have on hand. Eggplant, beans, corn. . .whatever. This can also work for left over ground beef.
Something that will help with the texture of a turkey meatloaf is to grind up oatmeal in your food processor and blend it into the meatloaf. I use 1/4 cup oatmeal for each 20 oz. pkg. of extra lean ground turkey. I whirl the oatmeal in the food processor until it's almost as fine as flour.
