So this is one of those recipes that I'm not sold on the turkey. I followed the recipe to the T and it left a lot of watery run-off. Not crunchy and flavorful like it's ground beef counterparts. Flavor was ok, but nothing to write home about. Additionally this is a huge portion with this recipe, I could have used half the turkey to feed my family of 4. Not for us..
This meatloaf is the best meatloaf I have ever had. It's moist (rare for turkey meatloaf), full of flavor, and has great texture. Perfect for everyday meals, it takes a while to prepare, but well worth the wait and it makes great leftovers. It even stays moist through microwaving. The only think I did different from the recipe was keep the onions and green peppers a little chunkier because I like the crunch. Don't be afraid of the stewed tomatoes on top, they end up tasting more sweet than anything. The only thing I had a hard time finding was turkey meatloaf in bulk, besides that this recipe is great. Make it you will love it.
I made this last night for my husband. He loved it! Said it was better than my ground beef meatloaf. The sausage adds great flavor. The only changes I made was the addition of 1 tsp. chopped garlic and I cut the bell pepper very fine and sauteed it lightly before adding it to the meat mixture (helps keep it from coming back to haunt you). I will be making this often!
