Embutido (Filipino style meatloaf)

The original recipe for this called for ground pork. But since I bought so much ground turkey, and I've been trying to cook healthy lately, I decided to use it in this recipe. It tastes the same as it would if you used pork. This is one of my favorite filipino dishes.

1 3/4 lb. ground turkey
1 cup finely chopped carrots
1 can vienna sausage, minced
1 red bell pepper, minced
1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
1/2 cup raisins
3 eggs
1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or mozzarella)
couple of dashes of worcestershire sauce
salt & pepper to taste
2 Tbsp. cornstarch

2 hard boiled eggs, cut into wedges
1 can of vienna sausage
foil sheets (approximately 8)

1) Prepare steamer. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until well blended.

2) Spread and flatten mixture onto the center of a sheet of foil. Place one vienna sausage and a wedge of egg near the bottom edge of the flattened mixture. Roll mixture with the foil until the ends of the mixture covers the egg and sausage. Tighten both ends of the foil to form a tight log.

3) Repeat the procedure with the remaining mixture. Makes approximately 8 logs. Place all logs into steam basket and cook for 1 1/2 hours. Slice into 1 inch patties and serve with steamed white rice and banana ketchup/sauce.
