"This was an EASY BREEZY turkey meatloaf. I made my own bread crumbs using sour dough bread, a fire-roasted tomato sauce and I chopped half of the onion and grated the other half. Paired perfectly with garlic red mashed potatoes and spinach, cucumber salad with Italian dressing. Will keep this recipe around for another dinner!"

"This is very good. I will cut the black pepper down to a 1/2 of tsp instead of a whole tsp. It was a little to much pepper for my liking."

"maybe a little dry, but I supposed that's expected with lean ground turkey. Excellent flavor and so easy."
