The recipe: "Hungry Girl: Recipes and Survival Strategies...", pages 132 - 133

This is a recipe that I had made pre-blog, so I already had notes about it in my cookbook.  I had said that it had a great flavor, but was very dry due to the use of extra-lean ground turkey.  Every time I use the extra-lean ground turkey in a recipe, it usually comes out dry and with less flavor.  This time, I decided to use the lean ground turkey to see if it came out better.  It did!

This meatloaf is so yummy, you will definitely be glad you made it.  As a matter of fact, I think this recipe is one of my favorites, when made with the lean ground turkey.  It tastes a lot like taco meat, but not to the point where you feel as though it should be eaten in a taco shell or tortilla.  It is definitely good on its own.  I love the layer of cheese in the middle of the meatloaf.  With the added cheese on top, this meatloaf is super cheesy and good.  I love cheese!

I also like the fact that there are added veggies in the meatloaf.  It has corn, bellpeppers, and onion mixed in with everything else.  So good!  If you are looking for a new twist on your ordinary meatloaf, try out this recipe.  If you want it to taste even better, use lean ground turkey instead of extra-lean, unless you would rather keep it lower in calories.
