Turkey Meatloaf

Turkey Meatloaf – a simple, healthy, and delicious dinner option.

Whenever I see the word “meatloaf”, I always think of that little boy on the movie A Christmas Story refusing to eat his dinner.  “Meatloaf, smeatloaf, double beatloaf, I hate meatloaf.”  I have to admit, I wasn’t a big fan of meatloaf either when I was a kid, and I’m still picky about the way it has to be fixed before I’ll eat it.

This Turkey Meatloaf is based on a recipe that my mom used frequently when I was growing up.  One of the things I have always disliked about traditional meatloaf is the sweet sauce that goes on top.  For me, meat and sweet flavors do not mix (yuck).  I changed up the recipe to suit my personal tastes by making the sauce more salty than sweet, and the result is that I really enjoyed it.

Since we don’t eat a lot of beef, I decided to try this meatloaf with ground turkey instead.  It worked well and I definitely want to make it again soon!
