This meatloaf is a crowd pleaser, because it is moist, tasty and it has cheese! I like to use ground turkey, since it is leaner and healthier than ground beef — your family won't even notice the difference. Serve this up with some mashed potatoes and a side of veggies and you've got yourself a hearty meal.
- 2 lbs. ground turkey
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 1/4 cups bread crumbs
- 2 eggs
- Salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon of ground garlic, onion powder, rosemary, thyme, basil and oregano
- 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
- 5 oz. cubed Monterey Jack and Colby cheese
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- Sprinkle of A1 steak sauce (optional)
Let's make the mecca of meat: 1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
2) In a large bowl, mix turkey, milk, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce and eggs. Use the best tools you have: Your hands.
3) Add all the seasonings and mix together again.
4) Cut the cheese cubes into smaller pieces and fold into the meat mixture.
5) Put meat into a loaf pan and top with ketchup and A1. If you don't have a loaf pan, mold the meat into a log mound and place in a baking dish. Place meat in the oven for an hour.
Tip: When baking with loaf pan, place a sheet pan covered in aluminum foil to catch all of the drippings. It will keep your oven cleaner for a longer time.
6) Let the meat rest for about 10 minutes, then serve.
