    From the Test Kitchen

    To elevate this savory turkey meatloaf, we’re topping it with a delicious romesco ketchup before and after baking for even more layers of flavor. For a hearty accompaniment, we’re serving it alongside garlic mashed potatoes and tender roasted cauliflower tossed with tangy balsamic onions.

    Tips from Home Chefs

    Prepare the ingredients & make the romesco ketchup
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the romesco ketchup

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and small dice the yellow onion. Cut out and discard the core of the cauliflower; cut into small florets. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop the cipolline onions. In a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs and demi-glace. In a separate bowl, combine the romesco sauce and ketchup. Season with salt and pepper.

    2 Cook the onion

    In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced yellow onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Transfer to the bowl of rehydrated breadcrumbs. Wipe out the pot and refill 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high.

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Transfer half the romesco ketchup to a separate bowl and set aside. Lightly oil the center of the foil. To the bowl of breadcrumbs and onion, add the beef and half the spice blend. Season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Transfer to the oiled portion of the foil. Shape into a tightly packed loaf, about 10 inches by 3 inches. Evenly top with the remaining romesco ketchup.

    4 Roast the meatloaf & cauliflower

    In a bowl, combine the cauliflower florets and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt, pepper, and the remaining spice blend. Toss to coat. Transfer to the sheet pan of meatloaf; arrange in an even layer around the edges Roast 19 to 22 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender when pierced with a fork and the meatloaf is cooked through.* Remove from the oven and let rest at least 2 minutes.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 160°F for beef.

Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
