Meatloaf Mashup

I purchased some lean, ground turkey at the grocery store this week, intending to make turkey meatloaf. I had originally planned to follow the same recipe I used the first time I made turkey meatloaf, but I decided to switch things up tonight & made a list of random ingredients I wanted to include.

Erica’s Turkey Meatloaf


  • Lean, ground turkey
  • 1/4 c. oats
  • 1/4 c. bread crumbs
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 egg + 1 egg white
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp. ketchup
  • 2 tbsp. BBQ sauce
  • Salt & pepper
  • Sprinkle of garlic salt
  • Sprinkle of poultry seasoning

No, I didn’t use soy sauce, but I didn’t realize I grabbed the wrong bottle until after I snapped the picture! 😉


  • Preheat oven to 350*.
  • Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.

  • Spray a baking dish (I used a 7×11 glass dish) with cooking spray, & spread the meat mixture evenly, covering the dish.
  • Top with extra ketchup if you so choose! :-)

  • Bake for 1 hour.

Since this dinner required a little more baking time than I’m used to, I made myself a salad while I was waiting.

After working on some school stuff, dinner was ready!

I cut myself an end piece (love the extra crunchiness around the edges) & served up my slice with some corn on the side!

For dessert this evening, I enjoyed two (new) dark & sea salt caramel Ghirardelli squares:

Side note: When I visited Ghirardelli’s website to link to them, I noticed they advertised pumpkin spice caramel squares! Has anyone tried these?!

Off to get some grading done! Hope everyone’s weeks are off to a great start! :-)

Do you usually indulge in something sweet after dinner?

    I haven’t had meatloaf in years but I remember loving the ketchup sauce my mom made on her recipe.
    Those squares look amazing but I haven’t seen them around yet. I’ll start looking harder. 😉

    I don’t necessarily need something right after dinner, but definitely by the end of the night! Even just a little piece of chocolate always does the trick!

    I HAVE to have something sweet after dinner- even if it’s just a little bite. I can usually get by with just a bite of two of dark chocolate, but if I had my way, I’d have a bowl of ice cream every night!
    Those Ghiradelli squares look AMAZING- I love that combo!!
