I got this meatloaf recipe from Cooking Light and it is a family favorite.
- 3⁄4 cup ketchup, divided
- 1⁄2 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1⁄4 cup minced fresh onion
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ground turkey
- cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Combine 1/2 cup ketchup, oats, and next 6 ingredients (oats through egg whites) in a large bowl.
- Add turkey and stir until blended.
- Shape turkey mixture into an 8 x 4-inch loaf on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray.
- Brush 1/4 cup ketchup over meat loaf.
- Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
- Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
try adding about 1/2 cup salsa to the recipe for a little more flavor.
This made a really good dinner. Moist, tender, pretty on the plate, and really good flavor. Also, very easy to prepare. I made a few changes to the recipe, based on another reviwer's comment that this could be bland: doubling the salt and pepper, and adding 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and a dash of tabasco sauce. Neither DH or I prefer glazed meatloaf, so I omitted the 1/4 cup of ketchup spread over the top. The final change I made was to use 1 whole extra large egg instead of 2 whites, I just don't like to waste anything. This was done in 1 hour, and I very much appreciated that since it was cooking on a raised surface, it was not swimming in grease! Next time, I think I'll cut back on the brown sugar, just out of personal preference, so it's a tad less sweet. We served this with garlic mashed potatoes, for a real "comfort food" kind of meal.
This came out very moist and was quite easy to assemble. My husband commented that overall it was 'okay, but a little bland'. I may try it again the next time meatloaf is requested - perhaps with a few more spices.
