Sweet Potato Turkey Meatloaf
This is by far my favorite turkey meatloaf recipe. I've been making it often for a couple years now and it is also a favorite of my family and friends. I unintentionally made a mini Thanksgiving meal last night that included this meatloaf, mashed cauliflower potatoes and maple carrots. It was a great practice meal before the real cooking on Thursday.
The ingredients in this meatloaf couldn't be simpler or healthier. Lean turkey, nutritious sweet potato and whole wheat breadcrumbs make this a meatloaf you can feel good about serving.
If you do not want to cook a whole turkey this year, this meatloaf is a great alternative. You can double the recipe if you need to and if you do not feel like making potatoes, the potato is already in the meatloaf!
I really hope you and your family enjoy this twist on a traditional meatloaf recipe. It is so delicious and filling, there is no way someone won't love it.
