I like the novelty of mini loaves in an easy-to-make recipe. Used 93% ground turkey rather than breast and added extra hot sauce because we love the heat. Leftovers were good too. I'm not a meat loaf fan, but these were good!

I'm not a huge fan of meatloaf usually but I made these b/c my boyfriend really had a hankering. They turned out to be really good and definitely not the same old dry meatloaf I'm used to. I doubled the recipe and added some dried basil b/c I had it on hand. Plus, they're pretty cute as the mini loaves! Oh, and I added the egg whites right in without beating them at all first.

I make this recipe often, but substitute 1/2 cup of uncooked oats for the breadcrumbs. This makes great meatballs and salsbury "steaks", also!

These were so easy, and delicious! I doubled the recipe and must also have small muffin tins, because I got 8 individual loaves out of a double batch. I didn't have fresh parsley, so just added some extra italian seasoning and a little garlic powder. Will definitely make these again for an easy weeknight meal without a lot of fuss.

Excellent recipe for Turkey meatloaf. Kids ate this up. Great week night meal since it cooks so quickly. Have started Meatloaf Monday's with this recipe for the fall!

I changed a couple of things. First, I QUADRUPLED the recipe to use 2 pounds of turkey meat (we have a large family). Everything else was x4 as well, except the Worcestershire was about 2 T and used Sarachi for the hot sauce. Aside from that, I formed it into a loaf, spread the topping on top and cooked for just under 2 hours. Served with mashed potatoes - delish!

I doubled this recipe and made the meatloaves smaller, making eleven total. Instead of using them as meatloaf, I turned them into meatballs over pasta by omitting the ketchup hotsauce combo on the top. Also, adding a tsp of soy sauce adds a little more depth of flavor. Very yummy!

We did not find this as flavorful as expected. I have other CL recipes for meat loaves that I would make instead, but I always try new ones. Served with CL's Grean Beans with Savory and a premade twice baked potato. This could be tweaked if you are on the border.

I decided to try these because I had some turkey patties, they turned out YUMM-O! Next time I will add cheese. My Hubby couldn't eat them fast enough! We had a baked potato and corn with them! Oh even my 14.5 month old gobbled them up. Great JOB!

I made this recipe times five for an appetizer party we had. It was DELICIOUS!! I substituted garlic salt for half of the salt and used sriracha and chili sauce instead of just chili sauce. The meatloaves were moist, flavorful, and a huge hit.

Really nice homey recipe that made a great weekend lunch for me and husband (he had two), along with a sweet potato and some steamed peas. My only change was to use seasoned bread crumbs and add some chopped green pepper in with the onion saute. Mixed up the night before so that flavors could blend.

I thought that this was just OK and agree with the person who wrote that it should have more flavor. It's a good way to use up a small amount of ground turkey.

Great recipe! Took the advice of the other reviewers and added more flavor - used Sriracha instead of the ketchup/hot sauce mixture and they were great (ans super spicy)! This will now be one of my go-to recipes.

I double the recipe and (at the suggestion of one of the other reviews) used Italian seasoning and garlic powder in lieu of the fresh parsley. I made one loaf. It came out juicy and seasoned nicely. Served with stuffing and mixed frozen veggies. Solid weeknight recipe.
