10 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/2 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray (or see Loaf Pan Variation).
  2. Pulse leek and celery in a food processor until finely chopped. (Or finely chop them with a knife.)
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Add dried cranberries, sage, salt and pepper to the vegetables; stir to combine. Stir in egg and bulgur. Add ground turkey and with clean hands gently knead the vegetable mixture into the meat; do not overmix. Pat the meat mixture into a loaf shape (about 12 by 5 inches) on the prepared baking sheet. Spread cranberry sauce on top.
  5. Bake the meatloaf until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 165°F, 40 to 45 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
