Turkey Dressing Meatloaf

2 pounds ground all-white-meat turkey or a mix of dark and white meat

3-4 ribs of celery, finely chopped

1 medium onion, finely chopped

8 oz finely chopped mushrooms

1 tablespoon poultry seasoning

1 large egg

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 cups chicken stock

2 cups stuffing mix

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


Pre-heat the oven to 400ºF.

In a large bowl, add the turkey, celery, onion, mushrooms, poultry seasoning, egg, salt and freshly ground black pepper.

In a medium size bowl, add the stock and the stuffing. Toss around, letting the stuffing soak up the liquid, then add it to the bowl with the turkey. Mix everything together well, then turn it out onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and shape it into a loaf. Coat with olive oil, transfer to the Dutch Oven, place coals on lid and roast until brown and cooked through.  
Bake for 1 hour until temperature reads 165 degrees F in center of loaf.

Serve topped with turkey gravy.
