Onion Topped Turkey Meatloaf
There are many meatloaf recipes, but the secret to a moist meatloaf is using fresh bread crumbs in your mix and not over cooking it which tends to make it dry!
The onion and ketchup topping also gives the meatloaf a sweet taste and keeps it moist.
Since I began making this recipe with ground turkey, I have never used ground beef again but it’s up to you to use which one you prefer.
This recipe is easy and basic but my family can’t get enough of it!
No matter how much I make, I always regret not making more for the next day so I suggest you make 2 of these.
2 pounds of ground turkey or beef
1 large finely diced onion
2 slices wheat bread (I use the ends)
3 tbsp ketchup
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning spice mix
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp minced parsley
1/2 cup ketchup
Dice the onion and divide into 2 parts reserving 1 part for the topping.
Shred the slices of bread with a cheese shredder or chop into fine crumbs.
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl gently until all the ingredients are incorporated.
Form the loaf into your desired shape and place in a baking dish.
Top with ketchup and sprinkle the top with the diced onion.
Cook at 350 for about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and let it sit for about 5 minutes before slicing.
