"This is one of my favorite make ahead dishes. I love that it makes two loaves. I can either freeze them both now or have one now and one for later."

"This was awesome! I only used 1 pound of ground turkey but (accidentally) kept everything else the same, making it REALLY moist and yummy. My husband said it was the best meatloaf he's ever had!"
