1 cup freshly made carrot juice, carrot pulp reserved
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon granulated onion
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon xanthan gum, divided
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup bulgur wheat (found in most supermarkets near the rice)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 pounds ground turkey
3/4 cup carrot pulp (left from the fresh carrot juice for carrot ketchup), tightly packed
1/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup finely diced yellow onion
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
For carrot ketchup:
1. Combine carrot juice, vinegar, honey, salt, granulated onion, and granulated garlic in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer, then set aside to cool.
2. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (a gluten-free thickening powder found in some supermarkets, in specialty foods stores, and online) over top; blend with an immersion blender until completely smooth. If desired, add xanthan gum, 1/4 teaspoon at a time, and blending completely after each addition, until desired texture is reached.
For turkey meatloaf:
1. Preheat oven to 400?F. Lightly oil 1 sheet pan if making 1 whole loaf, or 2 sheet pans if making individual meatloaves.
2. Combine eggs, ketchup, bulgur, and Worcestershire in a medium bowl. Set aside 30 minutes.
3. Place ground turkey in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed to break up turkey.
4. Add carrot pulp, bell pepper, onion, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix on low speed until well combined, about 2 minutes.
5. Add egg mixture. Mix on low speed until well combined, about 2 minutes.
6. To make individual meatloaves, divide mixture into 6 or 8 portions and form each into a Mickey Mouse shape on prepared sheet pans. To make 1 whole loaf, form mixture into an oval shape on prepared sheet pan.
7. Bake individual loaves 20 to 25 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165?F. Bake whole loaf 45 to 55 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165?F.
Unless you're particularly skilled at molding meat into shapes, you might get yourself a Mickey cookie cutter, available at none other than disneystore.com.
