    From the Test Kitchen

    To elevate this savory turkey meatloaf, we’re topping it with a delicious, buttery pan sauce made with garlic, capers, and fresh tomatoes, which we crush with a spoon as they cook to release their sweet natural juices. For a hearty accompaniment, we’re serving the meatloaf alongside roasted broccoli and delightfully rich cheesy mashed potatoes.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Place in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Halve the tomatoes. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic

    Cook & mash the potatoes
    2 Cook & mash the potatoes

    Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add half the grated cheese (you will have extra); season with salt and pepper. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, lightly oil a sheet pan. In a bowl, combine the turkey, ricotta, spice blend, and breadcrumbs; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Transfer to one side of the oiled sheet pan. Shape into a tightly packed loaf, about 7 inches by 3 inches.

    Once the meatloaf and broccoli have roasted about 10 minutes, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat half the butter on medium-high until melted. Add the halved tomatoes, capers, chopped garlic, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), remaining butter, and 1 tablespoon of water. Cook, stirring frequently and pressing down on the tomatoes with the back of a spoon, 2 to 3 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and the sauce is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
