I created this on a cold day when I didn't want to go to the store. I came up with this using just what I had in the house. With only 3 ingredients it couldn't be easier. You can also make mini loaves or meatballs with this recipe.

Ingredients

  • cooking spray

  • 1 (14 ounce) package frozen mixed red, yellow, and green bell pepper strips, thawed and drained

  • 2 pounds 93% lean ground turkey

  • 1 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Puree peppers in a blender until smooth; pour into a bowl. Add turkey and bread crumbs to bowl; mix. Form the turkey mixture into a loaf and place on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Bake in preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 45 to 60 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Editor's Note:

If you use unseasoned bread crumbs, add 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, ground black pepper to taste, and 1/2 teaspoon each of dried oregano, basil, and thyme. Add an additional 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary and/or sage, if desired.
