THE RECIPE

Unbelievably Moist Turkey Meatloaf

A simple secret keeps this turkey meatloaf moist

Today we’re celebrating classic Americana comfort food with a healthy makeover. A simple, hearty meatloaf can turn around a dreary day or a case of the sniffles by comforting you with a full belly. Typically made with ground beef or a combination of beef, pork, and veal (a favorite blend for meatballs), today’s recipe lightens things up by using ground turkey instead. Because it’s typically quite lean, ground turkey can often suffer from a lack of flavor and a propensity to dry out when cooked for an extended period of time. Here, Joanne and Adam cleverly solve this problem by incorporating minced sautéed mushrooms into the mix, keeping the meatloaf moist while cooking and giving an extra rich “meaty” flavor without any extra fat. Topped simply with ketchup, serve a thick slice of this meatloaf with mashed sweet potatoes for dinner tonight and don’t forget to save the leftovers for sandwiches tomorrow.
