Ingredients
  • 2 slices soft white sandwich bread, torn into small pieces (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 8 thin slices pancetta, finely chopped
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup ketchup, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 cup loosely packed flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup Italian-seasoned dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.

  • Combine the bread and milk in a large bowl and soak for 10 minutes. Add the turkey, eggs, cheese, pancetta, onion, garlic, ketchup, parsley, oregano, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Mix well with your hands. Shape into an 8-inch-by-5-inch loaf and transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 325 degrees F and drizzle more ketchup all over the top of the loaf. Bake until a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf reads 165 degrees F, about 45 minutes. Let the meat loaf rest for 10 minutes, then transfer to a platter and serve.
