I developed this recipe because I want to eat healthier, but not sacrifice flavor.

- 1⁄4 cup nonfat milk

- salt and pepper
- In small bowl combine oats and milk--let absorb about 10 minutes.
- Combine absorbed oats and all ingredients--except for ketchup-- in a large bowl.
- Mix with large fork.
- Spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray.
- Shape meat mixture into loaf.
- Brush with ketchup.
- Bake at 350 for 50 minutes.
This meatloaf is very tasty--my husband and I loved it. I did add a large clove of minced garlic, and sauteed the onion, bell pepper (not red pepper) and garlic in a skillet sprayed with cooking spray. This sauteed mixture needs to cool down before it is added to the other ingredients, otherwise it starts to cook the ground turkey slightly. After the 50 minutes in the oven, I moved the baking pan to the stove top and covered it with foil to let it rest. When it came out of the oven, the bottom part had quite a bit of juice in it. After resting for 5 - 10 minutes, the juices were reabsorbed by the meatloaf.
This was a hit with everyone-myself, my husband, and my picky six year old. I didn't add the red pepper bc I didn't know if that would make it too spicy for my child. I do wish I had changed a couple of other things though. I'm not a huge fan of onion, so I wish I had added less-and maybe sauteed them first before adding so there would be less of a crunchy texture. Also, I think adding ketchup into the mixture and not just painting it on the outside, would make it more moist and flavorful. This was my first time making meatloaf though, so thanks for the great and healthy recipe! :)
Loved this! I sauted the onions and pepper before adding it to the mix and accidentally forgot the egg. It held together beautifully, so I further reduced the calorie and cholesterol count in the recipe. Thanks for sharing!
