DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Coat a 9" x 5" loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, soak the breadcrumbs in milk.
  • Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium-high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the oil.
  • Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the celery and cook 3 to 4 minutes longer.
  • Scrape the mixture into the bowl with the breadcrumbs. Add the turkey, Parmesan, carrot puree, ketchup, salt and pepper, and stir to combine.
  • Turn the mixture into the loaf pan and smooth the top. Spread tomato sauce over the meatloaf and lay the strips of bacon on top.
  • Bake until the center of the meatloaf is no longer pink and the bacon begins to brown, 45 to 50 minutes. Cut into slices and serve.
