I added red peppers, garlic salt, and a sweet-and-sour sauce to my Mom's basic ground-beef recipe. This turkey loaf is now a favorite at church potlucks. John Cotti-Diaz - Del Rio, Texas

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

"This was good. I thought it had a strong turkey smell to it, but that's what you get with turkey meatloaf! The extra sauce was good but made a lot of extra. This recipe easily was cut into 10 slices, so 6 servings is very generous"

"this recipe doesnt need the 1/4 tsp salt. Most of the tomato sauce we have in our pantries has salt already added; plus the terrific sauce saves the dish from needing any extra"
