    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Arrange two oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the zucchini crosswise into 1-inch rounds. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a bowl, combine the ketchup and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Transfer half the spicy ketchup to a separate bowl and set aside.

    Roast the zucchini
    2 Roast the zucchini

    Place the zucchini rounds on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Evenly top with the chopped garlic and half the cheese. Place on the upper oven rack and roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until the cheese is lightly browned and the zucchini is tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, evenly coat one side of a separate sheet pan with a drizzle of olive oil. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, egg, spice blend, breadcrumbs, and remaining cheese; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Transfer to the oiled portion of the sheet pan. Shape into a tightly packed loaf, about 7 inches by 3 inches. Evenly top with the remaining spicy ketchup. Place on the lower oven rack and roast 10 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.

    Toast the rolls & finish the meatloaf

    Meanwhile, halve the rolls. Using your hands, scoop the soft bread out of the inside of the rolls. Transfer the prepared rolls, cut side up, to the other side of the sheet pan of partially roasted meatloaf. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toast in the oven 6 to 8 minutes, or until the rolls are lightly browned and the meatloaf is browned and cooked through.* Remove from the oven and let the meatloaf rest at least 2 minutes. 

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for turkey.

    Meanwhile, to the bowl of reserved spicy ketchup, add the mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon of water. Transfer the rested meatloaf to a cutting board; carefully slice crosswise into 8 equal-sized pieces. Assemble the sandwiches using the toasted rolls, spicy mayo, and sliced meatloaf. Serve the sandwiches with the roasted zucchini on the side. Enjoy!
