Growing up we had meatloaf at least once a month and it was one of my favorite meals. Paired with mashed potatoes and gravy and maybe green beans or broccoli, it was a satisfying meal. Now I am trying to limit my red meat intake, but I still crave that meatloaf dinner. I decided to substitute ground turkey for the ground beef. I added seasonings to up the flavor of my best turkey meatloaf recipe ever.
Moist and flavorful, it is a rival for all those meatloaf dinners of my childhood.
Turkey Meatloaf Fixins
For my turkey meatloaf, I wanted a simple recipe but, I also wanted to add flavor. It is amazing how simple ingredients that you have right in your pantry can make a turkey meatloaf recipe to the next level.
Choose lean ground turkey. Cuts primarily from the white turkey meat. The ground turkey will be lighter in color and lower in saturated fat.
Pepper, parsley, Worchestershire sauce, garlic powder, minced onion, and bell peppers all add to the meatloaf flavor. Eggs, milk, and bread crumbs help bind all the ingredients together so you can form your loaf.
Add a simple sweet red sauce for added flavor.
Pair meatloaf with mashed or roasted potatoes and a salad or a green beans and you are set for a satisfying meal.
