Mushroom Meatloaf

JW really didn't like this meat loaf, and thought that if it had a larger meat to mushroom ratio it would be better. I loved it- and combined these leftovers with the cauliflower mashed potatoes to have "shepherd's pie" for several days after. :)

Mushroom Meat Loaf
Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 2 slices)

1 pound mushrooms
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 1/4 cups finely chopped onion
garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons red wine
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs (I used oatmeal)
5/8 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 ounces ground sirloin (92% lean); 4 ounces ground turkey
large egg, lightly beaten 
Cooking spray
1/8 cup lower-sodium ketchup
1/8 cup mustard
  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Place half of mushrooms in a food processor; process until minced. Place minced mushrooms in a bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining mushrooms. (this is important- dont try to do it in one batch like I did- you make mushroom water.)
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes. 
  4. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. 
  5. Add mushrooms; cook 7 minutes or until liquid evaporates and mushrooms begin to brown. 
  6. Add wine; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. 
  7. Remove from heat; stir in thyme. Cool slightly.
  8. Combine mushroom mixture, panko/oatmeal, and next 4 ingredients (through egg), mixing until well combined. 
  9. Shape mixture into a 7x3 inch free-form loaf on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Coat with some mustard and ketchup.
  10. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160°. 
  11. It looks like meat...
  12. Remove from oven; brush with remaining ketchup and mustard. Cut into 8 slices.
