Meatloaf is always a good change of pace meal for my family and I. We use to never make meatloaf, but now that we've stumbled upon this recipe it seems like we make it once or twice a month now.

Ingredients

 1 lb Organic ground turkey 85/15
 ½ Onion, small dice
 1 tbsp Garlic, minced
 2 tbsp No salt added ketchup
 ½ tsp Oregano
 ½ tsp Basil, dried
 ½ tsp Rosemary, dried
 ½ tsp Thyme, Dried
 ¼ tsp Red pepper flakes
 1 Egg, large
Tools
 Rubber spatula
 Large mixing bowl
 Medium sauté pan
 Measuring spoons
 Measuring cups

Procedure

1

Pre-heat the oven to 375F.

2

In a medium sized sauté pan cook down the onions until just about translucent, add the garlic and finish until both onions and garlic are translucent. About 5-7 minutes.

3

In a large mixing bowl add everything except the 2 tbsp of ketchup and mix until fully incorporated.

4

In a greased 9x5 loaf pan pour in the meat mixture and smoothen out with a rubber spatula until level. You can tap the loaf pan on the counter top a few times to help level our the loaf and remove air pockets.

6

Slice and enjoy!

Notes & Tips

  1. We used this brand here which has 100mg sodium per 1/3 cup. But drying out low sodium bread and grinding your own works too.
  2. You can use balsamic vinegar here, or make your own balsamic glaze by slowly reducing a few cups of balsamic vinegar in a small stock pot.
