This recipe combines my motherís meatloaf recipe (replacing the ground beef she used with ground turkey and omitting the bacon) with some flavoring ideas from Shellís Turkey Meatloaf.
Cooking spray (Pam, e.g.) 1 to 1-1/2 pounds ground turkey (all white meat) 1 slice white bread, sandwich size 1/4 cup liquid egg whites (whites of 2 eggs) 1/4 cup ketchup, plus additional ketchup for topping 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1 cup finely chopped onion (more if you like it and can tolerate it)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 x 4 loaf pan lightly with a cooking spray.
Remove ground turkey from refrigerator and let it warm up a little.
Cut the slice of bread into small cubes. If the crust is very crunchy or chewy, remove it and discard. Place the bread cubes in a small bowl and add warm water to cover by about 1 inch.
In a large bowl, beat the 1/4 cup egg whites lightly. Add 1/4 cup ketchup, 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Combine well.
Add 1 cup finely chopped onion and combine well.
Remove the bread cubes from the water and squeeze the liquid out of them. Itís easiest to do this with your hands. Get as much liquid as possible out of the bread. Add the bread cubes to the mixture. Combine well.
Add the ground turkey to the mixture and combine well. Again, itís easiest to do this with your hands.
Pack the meatloaf mixture into the loaf pan. Top with a light coating of ketchup.
Bake for an hour. Let cool 5-10 minutes before slicing.
