RECIPE | Tessemae’s Turkey Meatloaf

Another comfort food recipe coming to the blog…what do ya know?!

I think this must be a part of my nesting phase or something. I’m craving all these recipes from my childhood randomly. They ARE some of the best recipes and they remind me of home, so I figured they would be great to share with you all too!

With the Healthy Tuna Noodle Casserole from last week and now this recipe, my mom is getting a BIG shout out here on cookithealthier.com lately! And rightfully so.

Meatloaf is one of those dishes that you tend to forget about if your mom isn’t making it for you, but it’s really so good AND EASY! So why not make it more often? Especially with all the amazing ingredients in this recipe, you can’t feel guilty serving it up a few times a month.

Since the traditional meatloaf is made with ground beef and white bread, I wanted to switch things up a bit and make this version using lean ground turkey and some of my favorite Dave’s Killer Bread! Oh, and the most important ingredient of all… Tessemae’s Ketchup! If you’re curious about what makes this ketchup so much better than the non-refrigerated versions, I wrote a full product review about this amazing ketchup here.

Now, the small tweaks to a very traditional meatloaf recipe that I made are just that.. minor. But I think they make a big impact when it comes to the nutrients you’re getting. So you will enjoy a familiar meatloaf flavor with less processed junk! A win-win if you ask me.

Hope you enjoy this meal. I paired it with some whipped cauliflower and some roasted brussel sprouts. PERFECTION! Although, my husband was not a fan of the whipped cauliflower. He thought I was tricking him with mashed potatoes haha.
