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.

Maybe you have to already by a fan of tofu -- but this was NOT tasty. It was weird. Maybe I did something wrong? I used only 1 lb turkey as another reviewer said that was fine but the tofu was still too apparent and seemed more like undercooked bits of scrambled egg than anything appetizing. So far in the lifetime tofu and I are not friends.

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

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

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.

I used 2 12 0z bags of the ground morning star soy portein product instead of turkey and it was wonderful! Texture was just like meat? thanks

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.

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!

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!

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.
