Thanksgiving Anyday

This is another rachel ray, if we didn't have somewhere to go for thanksgiving I would probably make this for us. But I still must try this for dinner sometime it looks so delicious!

Turkey and Stuffing Meatloaf

2 McIntosh or Gala apples, peeled and cut into small dice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 pounds ground all-white turkey (or a mix of dark and white meat)
3 to 4 ribs of celery, finely chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
1 large egg
Salt and ground black pepper
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups stuffing mix
1 tablespoon EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

In a large bowl, add apples and lemon juice, and toss together. Add turkey, celery, onion, poultry seasoning, egg, salt and ground black pepper.

In a medium-size bowl, add the stock and the stuffing. Toss around, letting the stuffing soak up the liquid, then add it to the bowl with the turkey. Mix everything together well, then turn it out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and shape it into a loaf. Coat with EVOO, transfer to the oven and roast until brown and cooked through, about an hour.

Sour Cream n Chive Mashed Potatoes

3 pounds (about 6) potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 1/2 cups sour cream
6 scallions, white and green parts finely chopped
Salt and ground black pepper

In a pot of cold water, add the potatoes and bring up to a bubble over high heat.
Cook until tender, about 15 minutes.
Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot they were cooked in to dry out. Mash them up then mix in the sour cream, scallions, salt and ground black pepper.

Cider Gravy

4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons flour
2 cups apple cider
2 cups chicken stock
Salt and ground black pepper

In a skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Stir in the flour, cook 1 minute then whisk in the cider and stock. Let thicken, season with salt and pepper, and serve.
Serve turkey and stuffing meatloaf with sour cream and onion potatoes, cider gravy and some roasted broccoli or green beans.
