Turkey Meatloaf

Finally! I can do it! Reading the instructions helps a ton. Meatloaf is always hard. And it's especially hard to make Turkey Meatloaf taste good. But seriously, this meatloaf is great. I'm going to make it again this week or next.

Here's the deal - Ground Turkey is best found at Sam's Club in a 2-40 ounce pack by Jennie-O. Good stuff, great package. I use it for meatballs and chili.

2 Tbsp Butter
Small White Onion, Diced
3 Garlic Cloves or 1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
20 ounces ground turkey
Packet Italian Seasoning Dressing (Dry Salad Dressing Mix)
8-ounces tomato sauce
1 egg
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Salt & Pepper

Preheat Oven to 350.
Melt butter in sauce pan, saute diced onion & garlic until onion is clear. Remove from heat & let cool
In large bowl mix together the ground turkey, Italian Seasoning, egg, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt & paper. Mix in bread crumbs & onion/garlic mixture.
Divide into 4 small loaves ~ 13 ounces each.
Bake on parchment paper lined cookie sheet for 50 minutes.

Note: You can make one large loaf, but the 4 smaller loaves will cook equally and more thoroughly then one large loaf.
