Mini Turkey Meat Loaves Recipe

These convenient turkey loaves are moist, hearty and loaded with flavor-also, oats, turkey and veggies! Bake ahead and top with cheese before serving-or freeze. Thanks to Janice Christofferson of Eagle River, Wisconsin for the recipe.

"Made these for dinner tonight. I made a few changes, using very lean ground turkey breast, tomato sauce with Italian herbs and a little less than 3 tblsp. of the quick cooking oats. They turned out very good, but needed more salt. Will definitely make again."

"I made these a couple of nights ago for my husband and I. I did alter the recipe just a bit by using a bit less mozzarella and egg whites instead of a whole egg. I also sauteed the onion and red pepper prior to mixing it into the meatloaf. We really enjoyed the Italian twist to these and I will absolutely make them again!"

"This is a great recipe. I made it exactly as written and it was terrific. The "loaves" were the perfect size, too."
