This recipe I owe a big thanks to the dough boy. That's right I found a great meatloaf recipe from Pillsbury. Who would have thought.
This isn't your traditional meatloaf recipe. First it uses turkey instead of beef. It also uses oatmeal. This is a much healthier option than breadcrumbs. Did you know oatmeal is a good source of fiber and protein its also a great milk producer for those breastfeeding mommies out there.
Now the ingredient that really shocked me is apple juice. That's right I used apple juice in my meatloaf. Trust me I was a bit nervous because I've never used juice in a meatloaf before let alone apple juice.
This meatloaf came out flavorful and moist, which isn't easy when cooking with turkey.
I used all the ingredients below except I exchanged the sage for marjoram and the red pepper for orange pepper.
1 1/2lb ground turkey breast
3/4 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup apple juice
3 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried sage leaves, crushed
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons apple juice
