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!
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup skim milk
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 2 Tablespoons dried onion
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 3 Tablespoons vinegar
- 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Tablespoon dried onion
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease 9×5 inch loaf pan. Combine meatloaf ingredients in large bowl and stir together until well mixed. Spread evenly in loaf pan. Combine sauce ingredients and pour over meatloaf. Bake for 1 hour or until cooked through.
