How to Make a Negroni-Martini (Negronatini) | John Cusimano
- 3 pounds baking potatoes, scrubbed and sliced crosswise 1/8-inch thick
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 large onion, quartered, one quarter finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 1/2 cups half-and-half, warmed
- 6 ounces Swiss cheese, shredded
- Salt and pepper
- 2 carrots, peeled and quartered
- 1 small beet, peeled and quartered
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup marinara sauce
- 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
- 1 pound ground dark meat turkey
- 1 pound ground beef chuck
- 1 cup basil leaves
- 1/2 cup EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375F.
In a large pot filled halfway with boiling, lightly salted water, cook the potatoes for 3 minutes. Drain and spread them out evenly on a paper-towel-lined baking sheet to cool.
In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 3 minutes. Whisk in the flour for 2 minutes, then pour in half-and-half and bring to a boil, whisking constantly; cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Let cool.
Using a food processor, chop the remaining onion and the carrots. Transfer to a bowl. Add the beets to the processor and chop. Transfer to a kitchen towel, wrap and squeeze out any excess moisture.
Whisk the eggs, marinara, breadcrumbs, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper into the carrot mixture. Crumble in the turkey, beef and beets, and mix well. Transfer to a 9-inch by 13-inch oval casserole, pressing into an even layer. Top with the potatoes and cheese sauce.
Place the casserole on a baking sheet and bake until the edges are bubbly and top is browned, about 40 minutes. Cover with foil and continue cooking until a meat thermometer placed in the center of the loaf registers 175F, about 20-25 minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes before serving.
Pure basil, EVOO, lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Serve with the meatloaf.
