How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Place bread in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until coarse breadcrumbs measure 1 1/2 cups.
Combine breadcrumbs and milk in a large bowl; let stand for 5 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons ketchup and remaining ingredients except cooking spray.
Shape meat mixture into a 9 x 5-inch loaf on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Spread remaining 6 tablespoons ketchup over top of meat loaf. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a thermometer registers 160°. Let stand for 10 minutes. Cut the loaf into 12 slices.
I tried this meat loaf, it's very easy to make and so delicious. I did on the side a steam vegetables salad, as green beans,broccoli, corn, cheek peas, with balsamic vinegar, fresh little slice cilantro, 4 garlic cloves crushed "no oil for sure as my diet" with sea salt, black paper. Yummy! It was really testy and good healthy meal. I love it.
First made this 12/7/08. Use 1# each ground turkey breast and turkey, 3/4 cup dry breadcrumbs. Added finely chopped veggies (carrots, peppers, zucchini, etc) and a couple dashes of cayenne. This freezes very well. Tonight it's being served with Italian green beans and garlic mashed potatoes. Have enjoyed it with cornbread and cole slaw and other combos. It's just good food.
I've tried this recipe and it was very easy and tasty. I did play around with the ingrediants at times...but did not find any signs of diarrhea..must of been all the BS from AJBaker. I'm glad it never made it into my recipe.
