Spanish Style Meatloaf

Gary loves this...

2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced (3/4 cup)
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 small potatoes, peeled and diced (1 1/3 cup)
1/2 small green bell pepper, seeded and diced (1/2 cup)
1 3/4 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. dried thyme
Coarse salt and pepper
1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey
1 cup grated manchego cheese (I used 1/2 c parmesan & 1/2 c shredded mozzarella instead)
1 to 2 slices white bread, diced (1 cup) (I used 1/2 cup bread Italian breadcrumbs instead)
1 large egg

Preheat oven to 350.  In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium-high.  Add onion, garlic, potatoes and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft and vegetables begin to brown, 5 minutes.  Add paprika and thyme, season with salt and pepper and cook stirring, 1 minute.

In a large bowl combine turkey, cheese, bread and egg.  Add vegetable mixture and season with 2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper.  Using your hands, mix until ingredients are combined.  Transfer to a parchment lined rimmed baking sheet; form into a 4x10 inch loaf.  Bake until meatloaf is cooked through, 40 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through.  Let rest 15 mins before slicing.
