Maple Glazed Vermont Turkey Loaf
The maple glaze on this turkey loaf makes it deliciously different from other meatloaves. I can easily double it for company, or bake an extra loaf and freeze it for a hectic night.
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min.
- 2/3 cup chopped onion

- In a large bowl, combine the vegetables, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well.
