This is a Awesome (!) meatloaf that I've adapted from a turkey meatloaf recipe from The original recipe calls for 2# of ground turkey, but this recipe is better with 1# of ground chicken and the added shredded veggies. You can use ground turkey, but I personally prefer the milder taste of ground chicken. This meatloaf tastes amazing and is a great way to incorporate more colorful veggies into your menu (or to hide them for picky little ones). Bon apetit!

I loved this and so did my husband. I too made some modifications. I used 12 grain bread to add whole grain, and it was still very nice. I also waited until the last 10 minutes to add the ketchup. I did have to drain off fat before I put the ketchup on, so don't be surprise if that happens.

Delicious recipe! I did change a few things around as I needed to use what I had on hand. I added 1/2 lb Johnsville italian mild sausage and added dijon mustard and brown sugar to the ketchup for topping meatloaf. Added some chopped fresh broccoli and green bell pepper and omitted zucchini as I didnt have any. Also added 2 slices of provolone cheese in middle of meatloaf. I baked it for a hour and half at 400' . Thanks for sharing the recipe!! We enjoyed it!!

I made this for dinner and we liked it very much. Next time I may back off on the amount of bread crumbs or, as another chef did, use oats instead. This meatloaf made a good, albeit mild, sandwich the next day. I omitted the ketchup and none of us missed it. Thanks for posting such a healthy and delicious meatloaf.
