Although I don’t consider myself much of a cook, I’m really proud of this recipe. The meat loaf is tender and moist, and the sauce has a nice, subtle spiciness to it. The mushrooms and ground turkey are an unexpected yet delicious combination. —Tyler Sherman, Williamsburg, Virginia

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/3 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 pound large portobello mushrooms, stems removed, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons stone-ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Cut three 20x3-in. strips of heavy-duty foil; crisscross so they resemble spokes of a wheel. Place strips on the bottom and up the sides of a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker. Coat strips with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, bread crumbs, mushrooms, onion, garlic, salt, thyme and pepper. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into a 7-1/2x4-in. loaf.
  3. Place meat loaf in the center of the strips. Cover and cook on low until no pink remains and a thermometer reads 160°, 3-4 hours.
  4. Combine chili sauce, mustard and cayenne; pour over meat. Cover and cook until heated through, about 15 minutes. Using foil strips as handles, remove the meat loaf to a platter.
