Healthy Turkey Meatloaf Recipe with Oatmeal

Can you feel Autumn yet?  In my neighborhood, the kids just went back to school, the pool season is wrapping up, and I can't wait for the leaves to start changing color.  I love, love, love Fall!

Naturally, when the weather starts to change, so does our menu at home.  But, I really want to keep our comfort food as healthy as possible. So, this week, I made Turkey Meatloaf and it was so delicious - and very healthy.  Plus, I was able to incorporate Oatmeal into this recipe which made me super happy!

Here's the recipe for Yummy Turkey Meatloaf:

About 20 ounces of lean ground turkey breast
1 Small Onion - Finely chopped
1 Medium Carrot - Peeled and grated
1 Stalk of Celery - Grated
1/2 Cup Oatmeal
2 Egg whites

1/2 Cup of Ketchup
1.5 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F.  In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, onion, carrot, celery, oatmeal and egg whites.  Make sure all of your ingredients are thoroughly mixed together and then transfer the mixture to a bread loaf pan.

About 10 minutes before you remove the meatloaf from the oven, mix up the ketchup and brown sugar and smother it over the top of the meatloaf.

Bake in oven at 350°F for approximately 1 hour or until thermometer reads 170 °F

The next time I make meatloaf, I will definitely use this recipe.  It exceeded my expectations.  Also, if you double the recipe you can use the leftovers for simple sloppy joes.  Turkey meatloaf + Sloppy Joes = Two easy,  healthy and very family friendly meals.  What more could a mom ask for?
