Italian Turkey Meatloaf

BusyButHealthy's picture
So since my Yummy Turkey Meatloaf and Mexican Turkey Meatloaf were both such a hit, I just had to come up with another! This is the best one yet! Although it takes an extra step to brown the sausage, onion and mushrooms together, it is TOTALLY worth the extra 5 minutes it takes. So much more flavor.
  Ground turkey 1 Pound (Extra Lean, 454 Gm)
  Italian turkey sausage 2 (I Used Lilydale Tailgate Mild Italian Turkey Sausage)
  Onion 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), chopped
  Mushrooms 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs), chopped
  Quick oats 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Dried oregano 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dried basil 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Garlic powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Egg whites 3 (0.25 Cup Plus 2 Tablespoon Carton Kind)
  Hot sauce 5 Dash (Franks)
  Worcestershire 1 Tablespoon
  Pasta sauce 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Low Fat Lower Sodium)

In a medium skillet preheated to medium heat, add sausage (removed from casing) and brown, breaking up the meat as you go. Add in onions and mushrooms and cook until browned and onions are caramelized. In a large bowl, add remaining ingredients except pasta sauce (raw ground turkey, oats, herbs, egg whites, hot sauce, basil, oregano and garlic powder.) Add in the sausage/onion/mushroom mixture to turkey mixture. Mix with hands until blended. Place in a mini loaf pan sheet or 1 loaf pan or a muffin tin). Spoon pasta sauce on top. Bake at 375 degrees F uncovered for 25 minutes. If making in a single loaf (bread type pan) it will take 45-50 minutes. If you bake in muffin tins it will take 20 minutes.
