Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch loaf pan.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion, celery, and apple until the onion is translucent and the apple is softened, 5 to 8 minutes. Let the mixture cool.
  3. In a bowl, mix the cooked apple mixture with the bread crumbs, Romano cheese, eggs, milk, and poultry seasoning until well combined, and lightly stir in the ground turkey. Do not over mix or the meatloaf will be tough.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan, and bake in the preheated oven until the loaf is cooked through to the center, about 45 minutes.

This meatloaf was different. I had a lot of ground turkey, so I had to do 3X the recipe and used a 13x9 pan. I did not have apples so I used the pre-packaged cups of natural chunky applesauce. ...

This was wonderful! Was moist and tasty! Better than beef meatloaf. I didn't have bread crumbs, so I added Stove Top cornbread stuffing; didn't have Romano cheese so I used parmesan cheese. ...

I adjusted a few things, like I didn't have celery, so I used zucchini, and used normal mince. I also added some ketchup and chutney for some extra flavour. My family loved it!

I thought this recipe was excellent. I had turkey gravy on the side for those who must drown their meatloaf in something but otherwise made it as directed. I made homemade poultry seasoning - ...
