  1. Preheat the oven. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes, or until the onion is soft.
  2. Mix the onion, garlic, turkey mince, breadcrumbs, carrot, egg, ketchup and mixed herbs in a large bowl. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Press the mixture into a lightly oiled loaf tin and bake in the oven for 1 hour, or until cooked through. (If you don't have a loaf tin, shape the mixture into a loaf shape, wrap in tinfoil, then transfer to a baking tray and cook as instructed.)
  4. Meanwhile, cook the new potatoes and peas to be ready at the same time as the meatloaf. Boil the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes, or until tender. In a separate pan, cook the peas according to the packet instructions. Prepare the gravy according to the packet instructions.
  5. Cut the meatloaf into thick slices and serve with the new potatoes, peas and gravy.
