    1. re: MobyRichard

      i'm one of those fans.
      lots of ingredients (mere prep work) but super easy to bake.
      leftovers are as moist and tender as day one. highly recommended.

      1. re: steve h.

        almost forgot, the gravy recipe works really well, too.

    2. I really, really love the Barefoot Contessa's turkey meatloaf recipe:

      My mom also makes a great beef meatloaf, but I don't know the recipe -- it's all eyeballing. The body of the meatloaf is ground beef, an egg, rolled oats, and jarred old-fashioned chile sauce with salt and pepper. It has the requisite ketchup on top.

      1. This is a turkey meatloaf from a local pub that has since closed. Excellent meatloaf, with a different kind of flavor due to the ginger. Great served with mashed potatoes. ( I usually add a bit more ginger as I love the flavor of it.)

        Brown sugar Glazed Turkey Meat Loaf

        4 servings

        ¾ cup brown sugar
        ¾ cup ketchup
        2 lb ground turkey
        3 eggs
        ¾ cup chopped onion
        1 ¼ cup breadcrumbs
        ½ tablespoon ground ginger
        ¾ cup milk
        Parchment paper to line loaf pan
        Salt and pepper to taste

        · Preheat oven to 350
        · Line loaf pan with parchment paper to prevent sticking
        · Spread brown sugar into bottom of pan
        · Spread ketchup over sugar
        · Mix remaining ingredients in bowl, kneading with hands
        · Form meat mixture into loaf and place in pan
        · Bake in oven for one hour
        · Remove from pan, turning it upside down, so brown sugar and ketchup form glaze on top
        · Allow loaf to rest for 10 minutes before slicing

        1. I take this recipe from Cooks Illustrated: then I add one large, diced Spanish onion that has been cooked to a caramel colour and sweetness. Adjust the liquid if necessary to get the texture right.
