Moist meatloaf -- half ground turkey and half ground pork, or make with all turkey. Tastes like turkey and dressing in a loaf! The various seeds in the toasted 12-grain breadcrumbs add a nutty flavor -- NOTE: Can be baked as 18 regular sized muffin loaves for 30-35 minutes.

- 1 egg (beaten)
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of celery soup (undiluted)
- 1 small onion (minced)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1⁄2-3⁄4 cup dried cranberries
- 3⁄4 lb ground turkey
- 3⁄4 lb ground pork

Very different, yet very nutricious. Flavors, and seasonings really complimented each other. Family enjoyed it . Made for 1-2-3 hits.
I used half the mixture for a small loaf and the other half I made meatballs and served them with turkey gravy over noodles. It was delicious both ways. I like the versatility of making two different meals from one recipe and I will be making this again. Thank you for choosing me in the Help a Camera-less Chef Game #5.
This was so good and so moist. I LOVED the flavors of all the herbs. Unlike your "typical" meatloaf. The cranberries give it just the right "touch" of sweetness without being overpowering. I did bake in a bundt pan which made it difficult to remove. I also used all turkey- Thanks so much!!
