Prepare & roast the vegetables
1 Prepare & roast the vegetables

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line two sheet pans with foil. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash; halve lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Halve and peel the onion; cut into 1-inch wedges, keeping the layers intact. Medium dice the potatoes. Transfer the squash pieces, onion wedges, diced potatoes, and shishito peppers to one sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 24 to 26 minutes, or until slightly tender when pierced with a fork. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. 

2 Prepare remaining ingredients

Meanwhile, roughly chop the piquante peppers. In a bowl, combine the pepitas and a pinch of the spice blend. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. In a separate bowl, combine the guajillo pepper sauce and barbecue sauce. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

3 Form & bake the meatloaf

Transfer half the guajillo-barbecue sauce to a separate bowl; set aside. Lightly oil the center of the foil of the remaining sheet pan. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, egg, breadcrumbs, and remaining spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Transfer to the oiled portion of the foil. Shape the mixture into a tightly packed loaf, about 10 inches by 3 inches. Evenly top with the remaining guajillo-barbecue sauce. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Remove from the oven and let stand at least 2 minutes.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F.

4 Finish the vegetables

Carefully sprinkle the seasoned pepitas over the sheet pan of roasted vegetables. Return to the oven and roast 5 to 7 minutes, or until the vegetables are browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.
