We have been using ground turkey in place of ground beef for a while now, and I am always on the lookout for new recipes. I found this in the 2012 "Taste of Home" cookbook (if you don't own it, BUY IT NOW!) and decided to give it a try. It is a thick, dense meatloaf that is loaded with hidden veggies. Even my husband made a comment that he couldn't tell they were in there. The sauce on top also gives is a sweet tanginess that adds to the appeal. It is New England comfort food at it's best!

The meatloaf slices easily and holds together for sandwich slices. I used a food processsor to finely dice the vegetables.
