Please pardon the picture. I am already photographically challenged when it comes to food and taking a pleasing picture of a slab of ground turkey wasn't happening for me. And on that appetizing note, this is THE BEST meatloaf that I have ever had. My boys are really picky eaters and my pickiest (who shall remain nameless), has this as his favorite meal. It really is that good. I of course substitute ground turkey for the ground beef (most of the time).

This recipe comes from a family cookbook that my awesome SIL Amy put together for us all for Christmas. Seriously one of my favorite gifts ever. My other SIL Stacey submitted this recipe and it has become our meatloaf staple.

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef (or turkey)
3/4 c. oats or saltine crackers
3/4 c. milk
1 egg beaten
1/4 c chopped onion or 1 TBS minced onion
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp minced garlic

Mix all ingredients together and put I put it in a bread pan (you could probably use a casserole dish too, never done it)

TOPPING: (Put this over the top of the meat loaf before you put in the oven)
1/3 c. ketchup
1 Tbs brown sugar
1 Tbs mustard
Bake @ 350 for 1 hr and 10 minutes

  1. I'm going to comment!! :) :) I've been catching up on your food blog and I am so happy to see that you have the best meatloaf recipe, too! I have THIS EXACT recipe -- topping and all! :) :) I grew up on yucky meatloaf and so did my husband, but my cousin gave me her recipe and it changed everything. :) I don't use ground turkey, either. I can totally taste the difference! Hahaha

    This is Lynette, by the way...I always forget to sign my husband out!
