Our family just adores meat loaf. I have a basic recipe that I usually use and it is just delicious! The texture is good. It’s firm without being dry. Using ground turkey keeps it lean, so if you’re watching your weight this is a good recipe for you. We usually serve our meat loaf with mashed potatoes and peas. My younger daughter and I weren’t big pea fans, but when you can mix them with your mashed potatoes they are yummy!
The great thing about this recipe is it is super easy and you can play with in a bit. Last night, I was out of ketchup, so I substituted barbecue sauce. I also laid some slices of turkey bacon over the meat loaf and then topped with the tomato sauce. These were some delicious flavor additions!
