The only difficult thing about this meatloaf is photographing it, which I guess most of you don’t have to worry about! There’s just no way (at least for me) to make it look pretty. But let’s be honest, meatloaf just isn’t the prettiest thing to come out of the oven.
But dang it’s tasty. I realize not everyone is a fan of meatloaf, but this girl is.
I’m sure if you wanted to you could spice it up with some herbs and give it some more flavor, I’ve yet to experiment with it because we like it just the way it is.
Using turkey burger or extra lean ground beef will help cut fat and if you’d like you can serve the sauce on the side, but I kinda live for the sauce. It’s sweet, tangy, and brown-sugary good. And I love how parts of it kind of caramelizes on the meatloaf while baking.
Hello comfort food! And Happy Monday.
- 2 pounds ground turkey, thawed (or used extra lean ground beef)
- 1 egg
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 cup milk
- 11/4 cup dried bread crumbs
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons prepared mustard
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl combine the turkey burger, egg, onion, milk, bread crumbs, and salt and pepper (I use my clean hands to combine).
- Using hands form into a loaf and place in a lightly greased 9X13 in baking dish. Sprinkle top with another dash of salt and pepper.
- In a separate bowl combine brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. Pour over the top of the meatloaf, spreading evenly. Sprinkle a little bit of brown sugar over the top of sauce. Cover with foil and bake for about one hour or until cooked through.
- *** I double the sauce recipe and save some for those of us that like to drizzle a little extra over each slice!
