  3. In a large bowl, combine salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, and cumin. Stir in eggs, ketchup, and half-and-half. Blend in a vegetable mixture from a skillet.

  4. Add ground turkey, chicken sausage, and bread crumbs. Mix well with hands, then shape into a loaf. Place into the greased pan.

  5. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 70 minutes, or until cooked through and nicely browned. Let rest for 10 minutes, then serve with gravy.


  1. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Sauté shallots with red and yellow peppers until tender, about 10 minutes. Season with thyme, bay leaf, and black pepper.

  2. Stir in half-and-half, garlic, beef stock, and chicken stock. Increase heat to high, and boil uncovered until liquid is reduced by ¼, about 10 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and ketchup.

  3. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Stir in remaining tablespoon butter, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Strain gravy, discarding bay leaf and thyme before serving.
