Why not try this great tasting meat Loaf that is sure to please most appetites. 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. This is a healthier alternative to traditional meat loaf, since it is made with lean ground turkey and 90% lean ground beef. The garlic & onion powder along with 2 types of onions & sweet red Bell Pepper adds lots of flavor. Your guest will really be impressed at how well the flavors come together.Heinz is the only way to TOP this meat Loaf.

How to Make Company is Coming-Meat Loaf for a Crowd

Step-by-Step

  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.
  6. NOTE YOU CAN DIVIDE THIS RECIPE IN HALF OR BAKE BOTH AND SAVE ONE FOR ANOTHER MEAL AT A LATER TIME.
