This is an Ina Garten recipe from the Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. My husband is fussy about his meatloaf, but really likes the texture and flavor of this.

This is absolutely delicious! The nutrition information is based on 8 servings, which is incorrect. This recipe should makes about 25 servings. I made mine into 5 - 1 lb. meatloaves. You can also make sure you are buying the best ingredients to include (ground turkey breast, whole wheat bread crumbs, and low-sodium ingredients).
