This is so easy and delicious. I omitted the cranberries, since no one in my family eats them. Awesome!!
Made this for dinner and it was very delicious. I loved the taste better than most other meatloaf recipes that I have tried. I didn't have a carrot, so instead I substituted zucchini. Will be making again.
Perfect for Thanksgiving leftovers, or any time of year!!
I hardly ever use ground turkey but decided to make some sort of turkey loaf and this recipe seemed to fit the bill. It was just what I was looking for. Everyone loved it too. Mine seemed to be a little too moist but that may have been due to using a slightly lesser amount of ground turkey. Still loved it.
I LOVE this meatloaf!! I accidentally used Italian seasoned ground turkey once and it was still delicious. Now I make it with regular ground turkey and I add a small shredded sweet potato to the mix as well. My daughter doesn't like the topping so I just make turkey gravy for it! She love this meatloaf and requests it often!! It's great as leftovers with the Stuffing bread on this site. I warm slice of the meatloaf and put in on two slices of Stuffing Bread with some cranberry sauce...YUM!!! I used Bell's stuffing mix and Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix with great success! Now I make a double batch and cook one for dinner and put the other in the freezer for an easy weeknight meal.
