  1. Preheat oven to 375°F Lightly grease a large baking sheet with 1 tsp. of oil. Heat 3 tsp. of olive oil in a sauté pan and cook onion, garlic, red and green pepper over a medium flame until soft, for approximately 3 minutes. Turn off heat and remove pan from stove; allow to cool for 5 minutes.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the ground turkey, egg, breadcrumbs, tomato sauce, chili, chili sauce, frozen corn, cumin, chili powder and cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Mix well to combine all ingredients.

  3. In a small bowl, prepare the topping by stirring together all of the ingredients. Add the sautéed veggies to the turkey mixture and combine well.

  4. Transfer the mixture onto the sheet pan and form into a rectangular loaf. Pour the glaze over the top and spread evenly. Place a sheet of aluminum foil loosely over the top of the meatloaf and place in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove the foil after 30 minutes and continue to cook for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from oven, slice and serve.

This sounds very yummy, but I think I will do it with a mix of meat instead of straight turkey, we like to mix venison or beef with the ground turkey meat. I can't eat any of this due to a severe pepper allergy but I will make it for my husband and dad to see what they think.
