"I find ground turkey usually turns out so dry and gritty and usually quite bland. By adding minced bacon to the ground turkey you get a moist and juicy loaf and it adds some great flavor, also the addition of rice absorbs the fat from the bacon and keeps the loaf together quite nicely. This is on the spicy side which is how we like it but you can easily tone this down by decreasing the hot pepper flakes."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



this was really good and no one thought it was turkey instead of beef. Also I used regular rice and it worked out fine. I cooked it in a loaf pan so added a few extra minutes to the cooking time. Thanks for sharing!
