RECIPE: Turkey Loaf (Meat Loaf)

Meat Loaf, but using turkey instead of beef. I love this comfort food!  I usually have all the ingredients on hand, too. This uses applesauce, which keeps the turkey moist since it doesn't have as much fat as the beef.

This calorie count is including the mashed potatoes
Turkey Loaf

1 lb. lean ground turkey
1 small onion, chopped very fine
2 egg whites
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (yes, applesauce!)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats (or you could use bread crumbs, but oats are better for you, and you can't tell the difference!)
2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp. ketchup

Preheat oven to 350. Combine everything except ketchup in a large bowl. Spread into a loaf pan (or you could shape it into a loaf and put in a 8 x 8 pan--I like the loaf pan because it insures that you get 4 equal portions). Spread the ketchup on top. Bake uncovered for 1 hour and 15 minutes.  Serves 4.
