All-American Turkey Meatloaf

This is my family’s favorite meatloaf. It’s tangy and sweet and makes a great meatloaf sandwich! Of course I first made it with beef, but now I use ground turkey and everyone loves it just the same. If you do not tolerate diary, just omit the milk or use water instead. I find turkey to be wetter than beef, so I don’t think you’ll miss it all. Put some potatoes in to bake with the meatloaf and steam some veggies and dinner is ready. Enjoy!

All-American Turkey Meatloaf

2 pounds ground turkey

3/4  cup uncooked quick-cooking oats

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1/2  cup ketchup

1/4  cup milk

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon salt

1/2  teaspoon pepper

1/2 cup ketchup

3 tablespoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons prepared mustard


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Shape into 2 loaves measuring about 7 1/2 x 4 inches. Place on a lightly greased rack in broiler pan. Bake for 40 minutes.

Combine 1/2 cup ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard; spoon over the meatloaf and bake an additional 15 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 160 degrees. Makes 2 loaves or 8 servings.
