...counts as baking because it's made in a loaf pan! Ha ha. Well, I made this for dinner after I got home from work today and it turned out really well. And my picky husband even liked it (well, he will eat any meat known to man, so not that shocking, I guess)! I got the recipe from Recipezaar (surprising, I know), it's #8803. I would encourage you to try it even if you're not crazy about meat loaf (I'm not really), but it's very light and has a good flavor.
Time: 1 hour (15 minutes prep)
Serves: 7-8 (or a little more than 2 people's dinner and lunch the next day)
1 lb ground turkey (my package was 1.25 lbs)
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup barbecue sauce, any flavor (Our favorite is Jack Daniels Original)
1 medium onion (I used 1/2 tsp onion granules)
3 slices turkey bacon (FYI they're mainly for decoration, you can't cut through them...)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wash hands before touching ingredients. In a medium bowl, combine ground turkey, breadcrumbs, egg, onion (chopped in small pieces), and barbecue sauce.
Mix well with your hands.
Spray the inside of a loaf pan (I used 9x5) with non-stick cooking spray. Put the mixture in the loaf pan and mold it to form a loaf. Then spread a light coating of barbecue sauce over the top of the meatloaf and lay the bacon strips on top. Bake for 45 minutes. Serve warm.
