Momosita's Amazing Ground Turkey/Chicken Meatloaf (With Hidden V

"This is a Awesome (!) meatloaf that I've adapted from a turkey meatloaf recipe from allrecipes.com. The original recipe calls for 2# of ground turkey, but this recipe is better with 1# of ground chicken and the added shredded veggies. You can use ground turkey, but I personally prefer the milder taste of ground chicken. This meatloaf tastes amazing and is a great way to incorporate more colorful veggies into your menu (or to hide them for picky little ones). Bon apetit!"

    Can I combine everything one day early and leave it in the fridge to bake the next day?

    I made this for dinner and we liked it very much. Next time I may back off on the amount of bread crumbs or, as another chef did, use oats instead. This meatloaf made a good, albeit mild, sandwich the next day. I omitted the ketchup and none of us missed it. Thanks for posting such a healthy and delicious meatloaf.

    I loved this and so did my husband. I too made some modifications. I used 12 grain bread to add whole grain, and it was still very nice. I also waited until the last 10 minutes to add the ketchup. I did have to drain off fat before I put the ketchup on, so don't be surprise if that happens.

    Delicious recipe! I did change a few things around as I needed to use what I had on hand. I added 1/2 lb Johnsville italian mild sausage and added dijon mustard and brown sugar to the ketchup for topping meatloaf. Added some chopped fresh broccoli and green bell pepper and omitted zucchini as I didnt have any. Also added 2 slices of provolone cheese in middle of meatloaf. I baked it for a hour and half at 400' . Thanks for sharing the recipe!! We enjoyed it!!

    Just made a version of this meatloaf with a few of my own twists and it was so tasty. My very picky 7 year loved and said that I need to make this all the time now. This is definitely going to have a repeat on our dinner table.

    I modified this recipe a bit in order to use what I had in my pantry. Here's what I changed:<br/>I substituted Panko bread crumbs for 3/4 c. uncooked oats AND 1/4 c. Progresso bread crumbs; the mozzarella and cheddar cheeses for 1 1/2 c. Kroger brand casserole cheese blend. <br/>Also subbed 3 heaping Tbl. Italian seasoning for Italian herb seasoning<br/>Added 2 tsp Mrs. Dash original <br/>Reduced milk to 3/4 c. <br/>Increased carrot and zucchini to 1/2 c. <br/>Baked in 8"x8" greased glass dish for 50 minutes, internal temp reached almost 190º.<br/>Super delicious!
