Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
1 large egg
2 pounds 93% lean ground turkey
1 medium DOLE® Yellow Onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup oat milk
1/2 cup whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 package (8 ounces) Dole Mushrooms, sliced
2 cups unsalted chicken stock
3 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup plain almond milk yogurt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Heat oven to 350 F. Line rimmed baking pan with parchment paper.
In large bowl, whisk egg; gently mix in turkey, onion, oat milk, breadcrumbs, pumpkin pie spice and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Form turkey mixture into eight (4-by-2 1/2-inch) loaves; place on prepared pan. Bake loaves 40 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 F.
In large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil; add mushrooms and cook 5 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally. In medium bowl, whisk chicken stock and flour; add to skillet and cook 3 minutes, or until thickened, whisking occasionally. Whisk in yogurt, pepper and remaining salt.
Serve loaves topped with gravy and sprinkled with parsley.
Tip: To freeze loaves, prepare turkey loaves but do not bake; freeze 2 hours, or until frozen. Wrap loaves tightly with plastic wrap and freeze in freezer-safe, zip-top plastic bags up to 3 months. Thaw loaves in refrigerator overnight then bake on parchment-lined rimmed baking pan at 350 F 40 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 F. Proceed with remaining instructions.
