Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

Here's a wonderful turkey meatloaf, a little mashed cauliflower and some lima beans.  Doesn't that look really good?  For quite a while we've been eating chicken and we're pretty tired of it, so I'm looking forward to the meatloaf.

Diabetic Turkey Meatloaf (makes 8 servings)

3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup nonfat milk
1 medium onion, peeled
2 lbs. ground turkey breast
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
2 large eggs, beaten
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp. salt
freshly ground black pepper
8 oz. can no-salt added tomato sauce

Preheat oven to 350.  Stir together the oats and milk in a small bowl and allow to soak for about 3 minutes.  Thinly slice about 1/4 of the onion into rings and set aside.  Finely chop the rest of the onion.  In a large bowl, combine the turkey, oatmeal and milk, the chopped onion, bell pepper, eggs Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, salt and pepper.  Mix until just combined.

Put mixture into a 9x13" baking dish and shape into a loaf about 5" wide and 2" high.  Pour the tomato sauce over the meatloaf and sprinkle with the sliced onions.  Bake for about an hour, or until a thermometer inserted into the center reads 160 degrees F.  Remove the meatloaf from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
