Oh, I almost hubbie said this was the best meatloaf he ever had. He didn't want to spoil it by adding ketchup.. Imagine that!! Enjoy...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, parsley, eggs, milk, cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Add the turkey and gently stir to combine, being careful not to overwork the meat.
  3. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, lay out the pancetta, overlapping the slices, into a large rectangle shape. In the middle of the rectangle, place the turkey mixture, shaping into a loaf. Using the parchment paper, wrap the pancetta up and around the turkey loaf to cover completely. Squeeze the parchment-covered loaf with your hands to secure the pancetta and solidify the shape of the loaf. While still covered in parchment, bake the loaf about 45 minutes. Remove.
