Turkey_Meatloaf

 

Meatloaf.. and I am not talking about the singer, is one of those confusing and funny named foods that makes you go hmm…and ask, “what is MEATLOAF?”  Well let me tell you, traditional meatloaf is ground beef mixed with certain fillers and baked in a loaf pan.  This Turkey Meatloaf is going to be a welcomed spin on the traditional meatloaf we are all use to.  No bread crumb fillers, just onions, pepper, garlic, and spices to make every bite full of flavor.  You will love how easy Turkey Meatloaf is to make and how moist and delicious it turns out.  The added touch to Turkey Meatloaf is the ketchup and BBQ sauce mixture baked on top, and  let’s face it, who doesn’t like a little sauce?  I love using a spicy BBQ sauce to add that extra kick.  

I first made this for my family while over at Lake Chelan, WA, on a long weekend vacation.  We always take turns cooking and my night to cook I made Turkey Meatloaf, which was a fit-fabulous hit with my family.  They all commented on how flavorful it was.  Packed with lean protein, veggies, and finger licking sauce, Turkey Meatloaf will solve the on going question of what meatloaf really is!
