  1. In a medium mixing bowl, knead the ground turkey and egg together until well combined, then set aside.

  2. In a small cast iron skillet, warm the oil. (My pan was 6 inches at the base. If you have a larger pan, you'll want to double the recipe)

  3. Add the onion, celery and mushrooms and sauté until the onions are translucent.

  4. Stir in the chopped garlic and stir for about 1 minute.

  5. Remove from heat and allow to cool enough to be able to handle the vegetables with your hands.

  6. Transfer the sauted vegetables to the bowl with the meat in it and knead with your hands. (Hang on to your pan, you'll be using it again. Do not wash it)

  7. Add the last tablespoon of oil to your pan, making sure to coat the entire bottom of the pan as well as the side, the best you can.

  8. Transfer the meat into the pan and form into a rounded loaf. (Like a dome)

  9. Bake at 375 F. for approximately 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reaches at least 165 F.

  10. Cool slightly, slice and serve.

  11. Season with salt and pepper to your liking at the table.
