Turkey Meatloaf

A while back I posted a recipe for Chicken Meatloaf. I made it with ground turkey and followed the rest of the recipe pretty exactly. I made it again tonight with some modifications and it was much better.

Turkey Meatloaf

1 pound of ground turkey
Saltine crackers (about half to 2/3 a package)
2 tbsp. oil, divided (I used safflower)
Diced onion
Diced celery
1 egg
Ketchup
Salt and pepper

Sautee the diced onion and celery. Mix it in a bowl with the ground turkey, egg, crumbled up crackers, salt, pepper, and half the oil.

Shape it into a loaf and place it in a pan. Drizzle the remaining oil on the top. Bake it at 350 degrees for about 35-40 minutes, until the middle is done. Squirt a bit of ketchup on the top and place it back in the oven for about five minutes.

I wasn't crazy about the spices it called for so I just eliminated those. I sauteed the onion and celery because the original recipe didn't call for that and the onion and celery didn't get done. It was too crunchy. My husband suggested the ketchup for some "extra zing."
