1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 1 large yellow onion, chopped fine (can omit or minimize amount) 2 medium celery stalks, minced fine 1 1/2 pounds 90% lean ground beef 1 1/2 pounds 93% lean ground turkey 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, plus more for garnish 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves 3 large eggs, lightly beaten 1/2 cup milk 4 teaspoons kosher salt 1 3/4 cups raw quick oats
Beef Gravy: (makes 3 cups) 1/4 cup all purpose or gluten-free flour 3 cups salted beef broth or stock 1 thyme sprig fresh black pepper, to taste
Directions: 1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Place a piece of parchment paper or foil on a sheet pan. 2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
3. Add the onion and celery and cook stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft, about 7 minutes. 4. Set aside to cool slightly. 5. In a large bowl combine the beef, turkey, parsley, thyme, eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. 6Add the onion mixture and the oats and combine with clean hands until mixed well. 7. Form into 1 long or 2 smaller rectangle loafs.
8. Bake 50 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the middle reads 160 degrees. 9. Remove from the oven and rest for 10 minutes. 10. Meanwhile, when the meatloaf is almost ready, combine the cold beef broth, thyme and flour in a small saucepan and whisk well over medium heat until it comes to a boil, then simmer over medium-low heat until it thickens, stirring occasionally about 5 minutes. 11. Pour the pan drippings, if any into the gravy and continue to whisk another minute.
12. Adjust salt and pepper to taste, as needed, then discard thyme.
