I am writing this on my iPad so if it comes out as a paragraph instead of recipe form I apologize. I have been making this for years and it is a huge hit with family and elderly neighbors I have adopted. Red Bell Pepper Turkey MeatLoaf 1 and 1/2 pounds of ground turkey (I use the 99% lean) 1 red bell pepper chopped 1/2 cup bread crumbs ( I use whole wheat, can use Italian too) 1/2 cup milk ( I use skim) 2 tablespoons instant minced onions 1/2 tsp each black pepper and garlic powder 1 egg TOPPING FOR MEATLOAF 1/2 cup ketchup 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 teaspoon prepared mustard Splash of white vinegar Put all but the topping in bowl and mix well shape into one loaf or two, I make 4 mini loaves so I can share. Make the topping in separate bowl and smear the sauce over top bake in preheated 350 oven 1 hour and 30 min for whole meatloaf less time for the minis. Last edited on 2/17/2013

Thank you, both!

It's so much better to have two recipes that are known to be winners than to start experimenting with the thousands of options out there in cyberland.

Thank you for the ideas above! We need a turkey meatloaf recipe.

We have been buying Costco's turkey meatloaf for a while now. It is excellent.

Digo, your recipe sounds very good. Although I haven't quite adapted my tastes to ground turkey, this might be a good starting point.

I love turkey. I love meatloaf. But when I smell the turkey meatloaf in the oven and it smells like turkey, not meatloaf, I about gag. So I don't even try anymore. Just one of my food idiosyncrasies.

Another vote for Ina's meatloaf. I prefer it to the traditional recipe using ground beef mix. Much lighter and so good. Company worthy is right- my sister made it for a family party. That's where I first tasted it.

Here's what we always make and serve with scrambled eggs on flour tortillas with Pace picante sauce or salsa. I always make it with ground turkey.

Homemade Mexican Chorizo

Ingredients

1 lb ground lean pork, ground turkey can be substituted

1/4 cup cider vinegar

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 tablespoon sweet paprika

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon table salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

Combine chili powder, paprika, cumin, salt, garlic powder, coriander, oregano, red pepper flakes, ground cloves and black pepper in mixing bowl and stir until well combined.

Add cider vinegar and stir until dry ingredients are moistened.

Add ground meat and knead until spice mixture is well incorporated into the meat.

You can use the chorizo immediately, but for best flavor development, place chorizo mixture in an airtight container and store overnight in fridge.

Form chrizo meat into small patties or just scramble and fry the meat in a skillet until done.

delilah--you'll love this one too! Always 'in the rotation' at our house!

1 pkg. ground turkey (about 1 1/4 lbs)

2 slices wheat (or white, etc.) bread, ground in processor to make crumbs.

1 small onion, minced

a few cloves of garlic, minced

1 egg

3/4 tsp. allspice

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 c. ketchup

1/4 c. cold milk

I like to saute the onion and garlic first in a little oil or butter, until transparent, for a mellow flavor. Then you can use that same pan to cook a side of vegetables in--delicious flavor!

In a large bowl, combine and mix well, the ketchup, milk and egg. Add all other ingredients and mix well with hands (disposable gloves are great for this!) or large spoon. Form into five mini loaves and bake on foil covered pan @ 400* for about 30 minutes, or until bronze and crusty on top. A real crowd pleaser, and great cold on a sandwich!

I didn't read any of the recipes but I have an old recipe for turkey meatloaf and instead of bread or bread crumbs, it called for "fritos" or corn chips.

I don't have a recipe per se, however, here is what I add to ground turkey to make a meatloaf (my family loves it, even my picky children)

Ground turkey

Italian bread crumbs (just have a container on hand)

Parmesan cheese

celery

dijon mustard

French onion soup mix (half the package only)

chopped onion

A-1 sauce

1 egg

a little milk

pepper

season salt

Like I said, I don't really have a recipe, I just throw all of this together, bake at 400 degrees for about an hour--this is dynamite

Oh, my! So many good options! I'm going to have to try one a week until my husband tells me he never wants to see another meatloaf {#emotions_dlg.laugh}
