"This is delicious! I used bread crumbs instead of the oat bran."

"This was really good & different. Made it with one whole egg & one egg white as suggested by another reviewer. Used panko breadcrumbs & green olives. Next time will cut back on green pepper. It was very moist & flavorful."

"I've made this one many times now and it's my favorite turkey loaf. Besides tasting great, it holds together well. My turkey comes in 20 ounce packages so I up all of the other ingredients about 25% as well, except the egg white (1 is enough). I pack this in an oiled loaf pan, top with ketchup and cook uncovered in the oven using a meat thermometer, usually about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The garlic stands out in this so I don't recommend adding any more than called for in the recipe."

"Oh so yummy! I substituted old-fashioned oats because I didn't have oat bran (I've never used it), omitted the olives (we don't like them) & sage (didn't have any home) and used regular salt instead of celery salt. A great recipe to double.

"I wanted something I could make and store to eat quick for supper. The flavor is really great even though I didn't have marjoram. I added a handful of walnuts and next time will try a handful of dried cranberries too."

"I've experimented with turkey or chicken Meatloaf several times before I got one I liked.  The main reason we didn't care for it was because it was dry...awful dry!

 
I ended up adding some diced carrots & celery along with some spinach.  Either fresh or frozen and the dryness was gone. 
 
I also make a simple seasoned chicken broth & cornstarch sauce to serve with the meal.  It's become one of our favorites!"

"It's to die for! The best we've ever eaten. I substitute yellow pepper for the green. I food process about 3/4 cup quick oats to get 1/2 cup oat bran. I use one whole egg and one egg white. Moist and delicious!"

"I've tried this recipe twice now, and both times it was dry, not very moist. Needs some kind of sauce on top. I think all the egg white is tending to dry it out with not enough other "sauce" in the loaf to moisten it. Will not make again."
