Turkey Meatloaf

turkey meatloaf

I love this recipe for turkey meatloaf. I found it on the package years ago, but I make a couple of changes to it. My family prefers bread crumbs on the top of their meatloaf instead of ketchup. The key is to saute the onions before it goes into the mixture. So good!

Turkey Meatloaf

1 to 2 T. butter

1 c. chopped onion (for kids who don't like seeing onions - chop finely in the food processor)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 pkg. ground turkey

1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs (plus more for sprinkling on top)

1 egg

1/4 cup ketchup

2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

3/4 t. salt

1/2 t. pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook 5 minutes or until soft. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Cool 5 minutes. Add turkey, bread crumbs, egg, ketchup, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper to onion mixture. Mix well. Pack into a loaf pan. Sprinkle some bread crumbs over top. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until internal temperature is 165 degrees. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with ketchup.

Nothing beats a great meatloaf and mashed potatoes for dinner!!!!! If I could move my daughter over to comfort foods rather than Thai & stir frys I would comfort foods to share galore!!!!
