Turkey Meatloaf

1/2 red bell pepper
1 medium carrot
1 medium onion
1 garlic clove
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
11/2 pounds ground turkey
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 large eggs
11/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
8 strips of bacon

Preheat the oven to 375°.  Place a red bell pepper, carrot, onion and garlic in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is finely chopped. In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped vegetables and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.  In a large mixing bowl, combine the vegetables, turkey, pork, bread crumbs, eggs, salt, Worcestershire sauce and ketchup and mix well. Place the meat mixture in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and, using your hands, form it into a loaf. Cover the loaf with the bacon strips. Bake the meat loaf, uncovered, until cooked through, about 1 hour.  Halfway through, removed meatloaf and pour off the melted fat.
