When I used to say "we're having Meatloaf for dinner" my kids used to run. Now that I found this recipe, they run, for the table.

This turned out tasty, though i couldn't make it exactly as written and i'd revise what i did do slightly next time. 3lbs ground chicken instead of turkey instead of the spices as listed, i added about 1/8c of jarred minced garlic to the onion mixture; for the dry ingredients my spices were 50 twists on my peppermill (i know, real exact measure...*roll eyes*), 1t dried basil, 1t dried parsley, 1t dried thyme, 1/4t dry mustard, 1/2t garlic powder, and then i put 1/4t rosemary into a mortar and pestel before adding to the other dry ingredients (next time i'll combine the spices first, m/p them and then add--i was skimming the spice rack off the cuff tonight so didn't think of it). we don't have hot sauce so i added 1/2t paprika and 1/8t cayenne pepper to the brown sugar before adding the tomato soup...it has more kick to it than i prefer (i'm so bland that MY favorite salsa is Pace Picante Extra Mild....) but it is tasty! looking forward to meatloaf sandwiches!
- 3 lbs lean ground turkey
- 1 1⁄2 cups breadcrumbs
- 3⁄4 cup finely chopped onion
- 1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons Italian spices
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons garlic pepper seasoning
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 (10 ounce) can condensed tomato soup (I use Campbell's)
- 2 tablespoons hot sauce
- 1⁄8 cup packed brown sugar
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- In a large mixing bowl mix together ground turkey and Worcestershire sauce and onions.
- In a smaller bowl mix all together bread crumbs, cheese, and spices.
- Add the mix to the ground turkey and mix thoroughly using hands, until all well combined and slightly stiff. (Note: Depending on what type of meat you use, you may need more or less bread crumbs to make it stiffen).
- Place meat mixture into a 9x13 pan. Spread it out so that it spreads out the length of the pan, while leaving about a 1" border on the sides.
- In a small bowl, combine soup, brown sugar, and hot sauce, stirring it together thoroughly.
- Slather the meatloaf with the sauce mixture, reserving some for basting.
- Bake in pre-heated oven for 1hour 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and enjoy.
- I usually serve with a fresh garden salad and of course, potatoes.
