It is just a favorite of mine. A have a few other meatloaf recipes made with turkey, but this is by far my favorite. Well worth it. Serve with the standards with a twist. For baked or mashed potatoes - try mashed cauliflower, or mashed parsnips which are really good. And peas or green beans for me, but try some balsamic beans or creamed peas with parmesan. In fact I have some ground turkey and need to use it up, so it may just be dinner later this week. By all means if you prefer the tomato based sauce, that is fine. I just like this for a change.

Directions

  1. Bread -- soak the slices of bread in the milk and then squeeze the milk out. Crumble and break it up and add to a large bowl.
  2. Meatloaf -- Then to that same bowl add all the other ingredients, except for the turkey and the ingredients for the topping and mix well to combine. Then add in the turkey and mix being careful to over mix. Over mixing can make tough meatloaf.
  3. Bake -- I like to use a baking sheet and free form my meatloaf but you could certainly use a loaf pan. I line a baking sheet and than form the meatloaf in a loaf type of shape. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 45-50 minutes until done. It really depends on how thick or what type of pan you cook the loaf inches.
  4. Sauce -- Mix the BBQ sauce, marmalade, and scallions and spoon or brush on the top of the loaf after the meatloaf is cooked half way. Then brush on again in another 10-15 minutes. And then right at end if you have any sauce left, brush or spoon on the remaining sauce and cook just another couple of minutes before finishing.
  5. Serve -- Let set 5 minutes before slicing.
  6. Don't forget you can always use a traditional tomato sauce or ketchup topping if you prefer, but I love this for a twist. Enjoy!
