Very moist and flavorful meatloaf. This was a last minute deal so I used what I had on hand: one pound of lean ground turkey, two links of uncooked sweet Italian turkey sausage, panko plus 1 cup cooked rice instead of breadcrumbs, 1/2 an onion,a large red sweet pepper, (no mushrooms) which I sautéed until caramelized. 3 minced garlic cloves, 2 carrots shredded, and cheddar instead of feta were added uncooked to the turkey mix along with the listed spices and an extra egg. Tomato paste plus some ketchup (no tomato sauce), along with cayenne and smoked paprika,honey, and balsamic vinegar made for a thick and tasty sauce on top. Even with my sad list of pantry substitutions this turned out great. The meatloaf held together perfectly (I hate crumbly meatloaf), and the sauce turned out smoky, slightly sweet, and with a bit of heat. We had enough for cold meatloaf sandwiches the next day (equally terrific). Yum.
