Easy Italian Turkey Meatloaf

I am definitely a meatloaf lover. I usually bake with beef and sometimes mix it in with some ground pork. For those who only eat fish and chicken, this is a very good and savory main course. The breadcrumbs and sausage add enough herbal influence, that there is no need for any additional herbs. I prefer the red bell pepper to the green in this recipe, as they are sweeter. The glaze is a sort of make do ketchup, Italian Style. I really like this meatloaf, as it is not some alternative to something better. This meatloaf "ROCKS"...!!!

How to Make Easy Italian Turkey Meatloaf

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl place the meatloaf ingredients (minus the turkey and sausage) and mix well.
  2. Add the meats and mix well. I do this with my hands.
  3. Place the meatloaf mix in a well greased pan. I line mine with parchment paper. Pat down to shape loaf in to desired shape.
  4. Mix the glaze ingredients in a small bowl and frost the top of the meatloaf. Add some extra freshly ground pepper on top if you desire.
  5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour 30 minutes. Turn up heat to 450 degrees the last 10 minutes to crisp and brown.
  6. Remove from oven and rest on a hot pad for at least 20 minutes before slicing.
