Turkey Meat Loaf
Serves 6
This lighter version of meat loaf will have you coming back for seconds (or thirds). Leftovers are awesome when pan fried, topped with cheese and served between bread for a hearty sandwich.

  1. This recipe has been a hit in our house since 2006 when it was first passed along from my friend, Gabby. Absolutely heavenly. The aroma wafting from the oven will have you counting down the minutes until dinner.
  2. You can also bake in a 9"x5" loaf pan coated with cooking spray, but we prefer it baked on a baking sheet as it provides more surface area for a crunchier ketchup coated top.
