I have vivid memories of driving through Vermont when the sap was being collected from the sugar maple trees and buying authentic maple syrup. Pure maple syrup has a rich, aromatic flavor that adds a special touch to this turkey loaf.
Sweet potatoes are quickly made in the microwave and mixed with chopped green bell pepper to complete this autumn dish.
• Coarsely chop the vegetables for the meat loaf in a food processor. Remove and add the green bell pepper for the side dish to coarsely chop without washing the bowl.
• Cook the onion, carrot and mushrooms in a microwaveor saute them several minutes in a nonstick skillet sprayed with vegetable spray.
• Start turkey loaf.
• Prepare potatoes.
