Fantastic! Uncle H who is a huge fan of beef couldn't tell it was turkey at all, and Aunt M said she daydreamed all day at work thinking of eating the leftovers. I added some fresh thyme in mine and served it with a homemade sauce since I ran out of ketchup. I used 1 c. tomato sauce, 1/4 c. mustard, 1/4 c. sugar, a bit of honey and a splash of vinegar for a sweet & sour kick. Drooling again just thinking about it! Next version I think I'll add some green bell pepper & rosemary too!
This is a VERY tasty meatloaf recipe. The carrot and garlic are very nice touches adding not only extra flavor but extra nutrition as well. I experimented a little by food processing the carrot, onion, and mushrooms and then sauteeing. The meatloaf has a smoother consistency that way.
WOW, that was delicious! I used this recipe to make as mini-meatloves in a muffin pan. A little on the sweet side, but that could have been my ketchup. Very moist but not watery. It filled up a 12 muffin pan perfectly, cooked at 350 for 15 minutes. Subbed corn Chex for the breadcrumbs and added some green bell pepper with the carrots.
