HELLO, from the other side (of meatloaf)
I must have tried you a thousand times
I think I found a good recipe now
For turkey meatloaf – giving a break to the cow
Okay a song writer I’m NOT! Sorry Adele for trying to adapt your lyrics. My point? Turning ground turkey into meatloaf is a bit of a challenge. It can be bland if not spiced up a bit. And taste also depends on the type of ground turkey you buy. Check out the different types and calorie counts at SlimKicker. Turkey should tame down the calories, but not lack in taste.
For that night you just want to do something simple, try this meatloaf for a quick and easy dinner.
The secret to good consistency in this turkey meatloaf is to thoroughly mix the ground turkey with the turkey sausage. I mean really blend the two turkeys.
My mother used to cover the meatloaf with a layer of ketchup before cooking. It makes for a nice presentation when it exits the oven, but I’m just not a big fan of ketchup to do that to mine. The turkey does make the meatloaf look a little anemic, but it doesn’t lack flavor with my bonus ingredient of turkey sausage.
Leftovers are great in a sandwich, or with pasta, or top with mashed potatoes for a pre-cooked shepherd’s pie.
You’ll want to gobble up this meatloaf!
