Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced medium (3/4 cup)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 small potatoes, peeled and diced medium (1 1/3 cups)
  • 1/2 small green bell pepper, seeded and diced medium (1/2 cup)
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground pork or turkey
  • 1 cup grated Manchego cheese (1 3/4 ounces)
  • 1 to 2 slices white sandwich bread, diced medium (1 cup)
  • 1 large egg

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion, garlic, potatoes, and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft and vegetables begin to brown, 5 minutes. Add paprika and thyme, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring, 1 minute.

  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, combine pork, cheese, bread, and egg. Add vegetable mixture and season with 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Using your hands, mix until ingredients are combined. Transfer to a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet; form into a 4-by-10-inch loaf. Bake until meatloaf is cooked through, 40 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through. Let rest 15 minutes before slicing.

    Really good recipe! No complaints about it at all. Would make it again.
    I used 2 pounds of ground turkey because I couldn't find ground pork where I buy my food.
    Like the other reviewer I did have to cook it for about 15 minutes longer than what it said but it turned out awesomely!

    This was delicious! I have alreayd recommended it to several people! I used 1lb ground pork and 1/2lb ground turkey, it was still a little fatty than I typically am comfortable eating, but it's the fat that makes it so rich and tasty! Only thing I had to adjust was the baking time... took me about 20 mins more than the recipe indicated.
