Recipe Comments & Reviews

Excellent recipe, very tasty for ground turkey. Definitelly will make again.
Good recipe. I also reduce the amount of mustard & eliminated the brown sugar. At times, I have substituted oatmeal for seasoned bread crumbs to reduce the amount of sodium.
The best for ground turkey. The only thing is the sauce is a bit to sweet for the light flavor of turkey. I use 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon dried mustard. The 2 tsp of mustard "bites" a litte bit hard in the aftertaste department.
Great way to use ground turkey. I put the onion, celery and carrots in my mini-food processor and it was the right consistencey in less than a minute(no hand chopping). I also used a little more catsup in the topping than called for. My family loved this very simple meal.
Made this the other night for dinner and the meatloaf was really tasty. Will definitely be making it again.
