I found this recipe on facebook and it was all in German. I have now tested it out several times made a couple of changes and Bam! I am ready to share. What makes this recipe special is the way your wrap the bacon. I use to place the bacon on top but you always get the side curling up or the bacon separates. This time I made a lattice design and it held up perfectly!
2 lbs ground turkey
1 cup of broccoli slaw or 2 shaved zucchini's and 3 shaved carrots
Salt, Pepper and cayenne pepper to taste
palm full of chopped or dried parsley.
16oz. applegate bacon
coconut sugar and honey
Take a piece of foil and lay it on a cutting board. Next to the cutting place a cookie sheet with another piece of foil. Lay out 10 slices of bacon vertically on a piece of foil. Take the left over 4 pieces and thread through the other pieces in a lattice like manor. In a mixing bowl place ground turkey, broccoli slaw, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper (at least a tablespoon of each but again taste is important to add what you want), and add the parsley. Crack the two eggs and add to bowl and then mix all together. Don't over mix it will make the meat tough. Then place the the mixed meat on top of the bacon and smooth out. Make sure the load if narrow and does not go over the sides of the bacon. Wrap a the turkey meatloaf with the bacon. Very carefully carry the foil to the cooking sheet and flip it seam side down. Sprinkle the coconut sugar, drizzle honey, and a little more cayenne.
Pre-heat oven 425 degree and cook for about 45 minute to 1 hour depending on the oven. Internal temp needs to be at 165. It is so important to get a really good meat thermometer.
