So easy to make and has a great mildly spicy flavor. You must double the recipe to fit a regular loaf pan and double the cooking time at 375 degrees.


I used 1 lb. of lean ground turkey and doubled the rest of the ingrediants. It took about 50 minutes to cook and I also added fresh basil leaves to the top of the loaf about 3/4 of the way through cooking and a some sliced roma tomatos at the same time, made it look good plus the fresh basil tasted good too. As recipe said, I added lemon pepper to taste and this loaf is healthy and tasty. A winner.


For all the not so positive comments made about turkey loaf I have to say this...I have not made this loaf yet, but like the idea of the salsa so I will be trying it. I do however ALWAYS and ONLY make meat loaf using turkey. I also only use wheat germ to hold it all together (instead of bread crumbs or crackers or something). Just substitute same measuring. Some may not like that texture, but my little family loves it and we usually eat the whole thing in one meal. I also use one pound of turkey, and still one egg. Just play around with it, you will figure it out. Just keep in mind that it is REALLY good for you and can make it just as yummy as your other meat loaf. I also have added lots of garlic or worchestersire sauce.
