One grill/oven, one cast iron pan and all of the trimmings in one serving, hence the creation of my All the trimmings Thanksgiving Meatloaf. My simple, savory and filling, one dish Turkey dinner. Just add gravy! A perfect solution for the big game tailgate party with your friends or any event that requires simplicity to maximize your family time.


Ground turkey 20 Ounce

3. Spread the meat mix on a wax paper and spread it in a rectangle.

4. Line the stuffing in the middle and top it with cranberries. Bring the two ends of the meal reactangle together with the help of the wax paper, such that it seals well.
