Turkey Meatloaf

With this terribly yucky weather outside, I decided I wanted to make a delicious and warm meal to enjoy. When I went to my favorite store {SAMs} I bought two big packs of turkey meat, so I knew this recipe would be perfect– 
Turkey Meatloaf


Ingredients :

  • 1 1/4 lbs Ground Turkey
  • 1 Cup Chopped Onion
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Ketchup
  • 1/4 Cup Yellow Mustard
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons Olive Oil or Butter
  • 2 Teaspoons Worcestershire  Sauce
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Pepper

Preparation :

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt the Olive Oil or Butter in skillet.
  3. Sauté the onion and garlic for 5 minutes. {Stir occasionally.}
  4. Remove the onion and garlic from the skillet and let cool.
  5. Combine the rest of the ingredients {turkey, egg, breadcrumbs, 1/4 Ketchup, mustard, worcestershire, salt & pep} into a large mixing bowl.
  6. Add in the onion and garlic and mix all together.
  7. Transfer the meatloaf mixture into a {greased to cut down on the clean-up process} loaf pan and press flat.
  8. Cover the top of the meatloaf mixture with the remaining ketchup. 
  9. Place in over and bake for 50-55 minutes.

My most favorite way to enjoy meatloaf :

  • Get a sheet pan and lay tinfoil down on it {to cut down on the clean-up process}
  • Cut a few pieces of the meatloaf and lay on the tinfoil.
  • Put more ketchup on the slices and put in the over on medium/low broil for aprox 10 minutes. {I love when the ketchup has browned a bit}
  • Toast a slice of my homemade bread.
  • Put a bit of mustard on the toasted slice.
  • Lay the meatloaf on top and ENJOY!

Easy-Peasy Bread

Who isn’t in love with BREAD?

Of course, I try to not love it as much as I do…But, this avid bread-a-holic cannot let go.

I have a handy Bread Machine that I love so dearly. ‘She’ makes life easy in the bread world.

This recipe is a common one for Bread Machines because it leaves the loaf with a crisp outside and a fluffy inside.

What more could you possibly ask for?

Yummy. Yummy. Yummy.


Ingredients :

  • 1 Cup Warm Water
  • 1 Package of Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 tbsp Shortening
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 1/2 Cup Bread Flour

Preparation :

  1. Place all ingredients in your bread machine in the order according to the manufacturer’s directions.
  2. Set bread machine to medium crust and 1.5 pounds.
  3. After my bread machine cuts off, I let it sit for a bit and then I wrap in it cellophane unless I plan to use to right away.


Of course,this lover of all foods, loves Meatloaf as well…so below I have used my bread to make a Meatloaf sandwich.
