Weeknight Favorite: Roasted Garlic Turkey-Basil Meatloaf


I love making Turkey Meatloaf this time of the year because everyone in the family loves it, and it’s such a cinch to prepare. This recipe has extra garlic flavor with fresh garlic and tomato sauce with roasted garlic. Chop some fresh basil and add panko breadcrumbs to make it even more special. Enjoy on a busy weeknight or sunday night supper.

  1. Alison–I tried this recipe last night… so easy and delicious! I substituted regular bread crumbs for gluten free bread crumbs and it was awesome.
    Well done!
