Moroccan Meatloaf

I have to admit, I sort of doubted Moroccan Meatloaf when I first heard its name. It struck me as a Betty Draper idea of “exotic” cuisine, served up for dinner when she’s feeling extra experimental. But after trying it out for myself, I don’t really care what it sounds like: Moroccan Meatloaf tastes amazing!

The sweet and spicy mix of raisins, curry and cinnamon in this ground-turkey-based meatloaf is delicious. The raisins plump up and add a lot of moisture. Add the chutney served on top (taking the place of the red ketchup-y sauce topping your traditional meatloaf) and the meatloaf’s extra tangy and moist. Couscous subs for bread crumbs (there’s the Moroccan nod) and mixes in uncooked with the meat but don’t worry – it cooks up in the oven.

I served this as suggested with green beans sauteed in olive oil and found the entire meal a delight. Leftovers the next day were just as good.
