If you're looking for a "healthy" way to have "meatloaf", this recipe is PERFECT for you! My friend, Paul, sent me a recipe for his "Tigger's Mooseloaf Surprise", which is basically turkey with vegetables, all mixed up to hide the "healthiness" from those picky eaters in your house. I revamped it a bit and added my own touches, which I'm sharing with you here. PS, there's no "moose" in it.
