Mini Turkey Meatloaves

Growing up I remember my mom making meatloaf countless times.
It's not a meal I've eaten regularly as an adult,
but I recently had a craving for some that wouldn't go away!

So what'd I do?
I gave her a call and asked for her recipe of course!
I made a few small changes, but it still tasted like I remember as a child.

The Goods:
Ground Turkey
Shredded Wheat
Fresh Herbs

Dump everything in a big bowl and mix it up.
I used my hands (clean of course!) because they make the best tools.
And because that's how my mom did it when I was little.

Once mixed well, transfer to your baking dish.
I wanted mini loaves, but use whatever dish you desire!

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and brush tops with ketchup.
Return to the oven and bake 20 to 25 more minutes.

No one ever said that meatloaf was a pretty meal,
but man does it sure taste great!
Comfort food at it's finest, people!

Serve warm with some yummy sides.
I chose mashed sweet potatoes and roasted broccoli - YUM!
