Ingredients

Meatloaf:

1 pound ground turkey

8 ounces ground pork 

1/2 cup diced onions

1/2 cup tomato paste 

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill 

1 tablespoon turmeric 

1 tablespoon cumin 

1 tablespoon smoked paprika 

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon 

2 large eggs 

Mashed Potatoes:

4 Idaho russet potatoes, peeled

1 cup heavy cream 

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter

3 tablespoons truffle oil 

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Cherry Tomato Jam:

1/2 cup diced onions

2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger

1 sprig fresh rosemary 

2 tablespoons olive oil 

1/2 cup sherry vinegar 

3 tablespoons tomato paste 

2 tablespoons brown sugar 

12 cherry tomatoes 

Directions

  1. For the meatloaf: Combine the turkey, pork, onions, tomato paste, flour, garlic, dill, turmeric, cumin, smoked paprika, cinnamon and eggs in a large bowl. Let rest, refrigerated, for 10 to 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Form the meatloaf mixture into 12 balls and put 1 ball in each cup of a 12-cup cupcake or muffin tin. Bake until the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. For the mashed potatoes: Put the potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender. Drain the potatoes, put back in the pot and add the cream, butter, truffle oil and salt and pepper to taste. Mash until smooth; do not over-work as the potatoes will become gummy. If the potatoes are too wet, cook over low heat until a smooth consistency is achieved.
  5. For the cherry tomato jam: Sweat the onions, ginger and rosemary with the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the sherry vinegar, tomato paste, brown sugar and cherry tomatoes and simmer until the liquid is reduced by one-third, 7 to 8 minutes
  6. To serve, put each meatloaf cupcake on a plate, ice with some mashed potato icing and top off with a dollop of the cherry tomato jam.
