This was the meatloaf we served every day.  We made our meatloaf with ground turkey so that it was lower in fat as athat was what people were asking for in those days.  This is a great alternative to beef and pork meatloaf for those who are cutting back on red meat as well.   The secret to it's rich flavor isHizzoner's Meatloaf adding the beef base granules.  You could leave them out but then the meatloaf would be a little 'thin" tasting.    

This meatloaf is great as a dinner entree with mashed potatoes and gravy or as a cold sandwich or a hot sandwich with an Italian red sauce like a meatball sandwich.
