It is hearty, comforting & full of flavor, & a great way to impress without breaking the bank & be insured that everyone will get enough & not leave the table hungry.

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine onion soup mix with evaporated milk, stir and allow to sit until onions are rehydrated about 10 to 15 minutes. Spray a Half Sheet Cake Pan with non stick cooking spray and set aside till needed. I also like to use foil for easier clean up.
2
In a large mixing bowl add the ground turkey and ground beef. Process texas toast into bread crumbs, and then sprinkle over meat.
3
Crack eggs and add to mixing bowl of ground meats, then add chopped onions, bell pepper, spices, chopped parsley, & Hunts Manwich, then add the evaporated milk mixture, now proceed to combine thourgly. I like to use my hands for this part, but use what ever method you are most comfortable with.
4
After meat mixture has been thourgly combined, divide mixture evenly & shape into 2 loaves, and put in prepared pan. Divide catsup evenly to cover top of both meat loaves.
5
Bake in pre heated 350 degree F. oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for 15 minutes then slice and serve.
