    I thought this was scrumptious and it smelled so good baking. Tried to go by recipe but needed to change a few things. My ground turkey comes in 19.5 oz packages and I used it all but did not increase the other ingredients Had no oat bran so used bread crumbs. Hate green pepper so omitted it. Can't use salt for health reasons so used celery seed instead of celery salt. Also, I smashed it into a Pyrex loaf pan and it ended up kind of short. Next time I will do as the recipe says and make it a taller loaf in a metal pan and it will bake faster as I turned the temp down for the glass. I try to only eat turkey, chicken and fish for meat so really appreciate this recipe for a change. It was the best meatloaf I've ever had - homemade or from a restaurant. I'm in my 60s so I've tried quite a few.. Turkey is already on my grocery list so I can make another of these. Thank you so much for sharing!

    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.~ Theresa

    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!
