sweet-and-spicy mini meatloaves

I made this tonight and we all really liked it.  I served it with twice baked potatoes and green beans.  This is a great recipe because it is healthier than regular meatloaf (half ground turkey plus wheat bread and carrots/onions) and because it cooks much quicker.   I made 1 1/2 of this recipe and it fed the family plus leftovers.

2 slices whole wheat bread
1/2 small onion
1 medium carrot
1/2 lb lean ground turkey
1/2 lb lean ground beef
1 lg egg
1/2 tsp  curry powder
salt and pepper
1 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp apricot jam

Preheat oven to 375.  Pulse bread in food processor until finely ground.  Transfer to a large bowl.  Add onion and carrot to food processor and pulse until finely chopped.  Transfer to the bowl.  Add meats, egg, curry powder and salt and pepper.  Mix by hand.  Shape into 4 oblong meatloaves on a foil-lined baking sheet.  Mix ketchup and jam in a small bowl and brush over the meatloaves.  Bake until cooked through - about 20 minutes.  (I baked for 25 just to be safe but don't overcook)
