Moist turkey meatloaf recipe made with oats, instead of bread! This meatloaf recipe will have the family begging for seconds!
My husband LOVES meatloaf I’ve been trying to think of many ways to get this man to eat less beef, and try a little ground beef once in a while. He’s so stubborn, and set in his ways and refused to eat any ground turkey! I had a trick up my sleeve. I knew that If I could make meatloaf, which is his favorite food, out of ground turkey and beg him to sample just a forkful “for my blog” he’d do it. Honey! let me tell you- not only did this man sample my turkey meatloaf, but he asked me to make him a plate, AND went back for seconds! I finally got him to eat ground turkey! Not only did he eat it, but he enjoyed it and asked me to make it again! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
This turkey meatloaf is amazing ( just ask my turkey hating hubby!). It’s full of flavor, and it’s super moist. It’s low in fat, and it’s a lot lighter than the traditional meatloaf which is made of ground beef. So I guess we can call this a healthy turkey meatloaf recipe right? LOL.
