Better than Grandma's Turkey Meat Loaf

Submitted by: WESLEYSBRIDE

Introduction

My Husband loves meatloaf but I hate to make it because it's so high in calories and fat. I found this wonderful recipe in a wedding cookbook, and Turkey works great in it. Delicious and super moist! Long cooking time though, so good for a hearty Sunday night meal. My Husband loves meatloaf but I hate to make it because it's so high in calories and fat.

    This is a keeper.I cooked without the sausages, I did add a little ground sage. I made it into 2 smaller loaves and one is in the freezer. Next time i will do 1 loaf and meatballs. A good allround recipe though,thanks for sharing - 1/28/10

  • This was wonderful, we baked acorn squash and had a green bean/ artichoke casserole with it. We cut out the "topping" of ketchup but left it in the mix. This cut the calories and sugar. - 8/1/13

  • Really yummy! Even my boyfriend, who "hates" "diet food," loved it... the only thing is that we couldn't find low fat breakfast sausage. I wonder if turkey sausage would work. We used regular pork sausage and poured off the grease, but I'm sure it upped the calories. - 12/17/09

  • Made it with the substitution of Egg Beaters for the egg and non-stick spray for the oil. Also instead of bread crumbs, I crushed up Special K cereal. Not sure how many calories this takes away but it sure is yummy. - 3/12/09
