My mom made this for our family when I was a kid using ground turkey. The tofu blends so nicely with the meat and the sauce. I like it juicy so I sometimes double the sauce.

I'm always on the lookout for good recipes using substitutes for ground beef and this one really was a winner. Came out nice and moist and my kids especially loved the soy sauce/brown sugar glaze. This one's a keeper... I'll definitely make it again. Read More

I followed the recipe as instructed but doubled the sauce as others' recommended. My husband found the smell of the meatloaf offensive but said it tasted okay. I found the smell strong and the taste was okay. My son refused to try it because of the strong smell (Lipton's Onion Soup and soy combination I think). The smell is very strong and the leftovers tainted food/water in the refrigerator. I am not inclined to make this again given our unfortunate response to a healthy alternative meal. Read More

I have a question about this recipe. What advantage is the tofu? You're using 2 lbs. of meat so why? Read More

This was a good meatloaf. I did change a few things based on other suggestions. I added only one egg since I only used one pound of turkey I did use the whole package of tofu since others had said that it was too salty I cut down on the onion soup mix(1/2pkg) and soy sauce(1/8cup). I added about 1tsp of Emeril's Asian spice mix and that gave it a real nice kick. I will make this again. Thanks for the recipe Read More

My tofu-hating husband requests this dish over and over. It's so easy and I just freeze the fresh ingredients in premeasured portions the let them defrost in the fridge right before making it. Read More

This deserves 5 stars! What a great way to use tofu in a meatloaf and it DOES blend incredibly well...you don't know it's partly meatless! I also agree that the sauce makes it it...I think it's worth doubling or even tripling. I didn't think the sauce was too salty...keep it as is. However due to the other reviews abou the onion soup mix being too salty (and also the fact that I didn't have any on-hand) here's what I mixed the meatloaf with and it turned out perfectly seasonsed: 1/2 panko crumbs 2 TB's teriyaki sauce 1 small chopped onion 1/4 tsp black pepper 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper 1/8 tsp garlic salt 1/4 tsp Spike gourmet seasoning (or something similar). I followed the recipe with the same amount of eggs and I did add the green pepper but I used more tofu (19 oz. instead of 14 oz.) and used only 1 lb. of ground turkey. Delish! Will definitely make again! Read More

Really yummy although pretty salty. I used only 1 pound of turkey and twice the tofu and it was great. Next time I will try it with only tofu no meat and maybe a combination of spices rather than the super salty onion soup mix. Read More

This was very good and very moist. I had a few changes: used 1.25 lbs of ground turkey one egg and no bell peppers (didn't have any on hand). The sauce really makes it. My husband said it was just OK until I told him to spoon some of the leftover sauce onto the meatloaf: then he really liked it (although he knew there was tofu in it so he was a little turned off but still enjoyed it). My 4 yr old liked it as well. A great way to get some soy into our diets! Read More

A couple reviewers thought this was bland so I used the spicy tofu rather than the plain and it was good. Next time I would use the lo-sodium soy sauce. Very good - I'd make again and tweak it a little for personal taste. Read More
