So interesting to see this recipe I made something like this last night so I am sure this would be great. I take ground turkey green onions garlic bread crumbs and make an oblong meatball. Then I deep fry them. They are so good hot or cold so I will be making your recipe to try

Making these tonight, adding peas and carrots for extra veggies that the kids won't notice!

These are so delicious. The second time I made them I added a small can of Hatch green chilis and it gave a little southwest flavor, but not any heat.

I usually double this recipe (use just one egg), bake 1/2 as a loaf to serve & have leftovers for sandwiches. I use the other 1/2 for mini meatloaves....line muffin tin with foil, freeze in pan. When frozen, remove individual miniloaves and pop into freezer bag. Bake from frozen at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes. Great when cooking for just two!!

The taste is great and if you make them small enough, you can use them as meatballs. I give them two thumbs up.

This recipe is yummy! To change things up, I also use this recipe and form the meat mixture into mini turkey burgers (bake them same time and temp as recipe).

I just made these mini turkey meatloaves without any eggs. Cooked for 30-35 minutes and they were still very moist. The egg really is not needed in this recipe; they do not fall apart without the egg either.

This was so good! I've made it twice. First time with ground chicken and tonight I used ground turkey. It works great either way. I used 1 egg white to cut down on fat and I supplemented with ketchup to add more moisture. I have a 2 yr old and he ate two of them. They've quickly become a favorite. Another thing I like about this recipe is how felxible you can be with it. You can easily add some peas or extra veggies to up the nutritional factor. Lots of ways to play around with it.

We eat these probably once a week they are AWESOME, and completely easy to make. We make a healthier version instead of using two eggs (cuz that completely messes them up, and makes them mushy) we use one egg white only and add a little ketchup in the mix. The ketchup makes them more moist without completely ruinning them like the two eggs does. These are defintley worth a try!!!

Great, quick meal - I added salt, pepper and 3 Tbsp of ketchup to the mixture.

Easy to assemble. However the recipe calls for a 12 cup muffin pan and the recipe only makes 6 servings. This should be taken into account when preparing this recipe and only use a 6 cup muffin pan.

These were delicious!! I added some chopped green pepper and used fresh onions. I also omitted the cheese and topped them with Ketsup. The family loves them hot or cold!! YUM!! Thanks Perdue!!

DO NOT use the two eggs, it bubbles over and makes it wayyyy too mushy. ruined dinner and had pizza again.

i haven't tasted it yet - it's still in the oven - but i originally defrosted 2lbs of the ground turkey (2 packages) and doubled the recipe listed - the recipe called for 1 package which i assumed was 1lb - so i doubled the ingredients, right? i figured i'd make 1-12pc mini meatloaves in my 12 cup cupcake pan and then i'd make 1 freestanding mealoaf - but after preparing a "double-batch" i used a 1/2cup measuring cup and filled the 12 cupcake cups and didn't have any ingredients left. did i miss something? it called for a "scant" 1/2 cup in each cup - but 1/2 cup of this stuff filled it to the top and overflowed - making it look like a big muffin!?! so now it's cooking and i don't know if 1/2hour is long enough. i will keep you updated.

Excellent! Very tasty and more importantly - THE KIDS LIKED IT TOO!!

This is the best, low calorie meatloaf recipe I've found yet. Sometimes I bake it as a "loaf" in a glass baking dish -- 9 slices = 3 points/slice in Weight Watchers.
