The meatloaf in the picture above uses turkey for the meat but you can use either.
I am not a big fan of meatloaf but the rest of my family is and after using a few different recipes this one seems to be the family favorite. It is based on a recipe from Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook with some modifications.
1/2 onion chopped
1 lb. ground beef or turkey (I used turkey)
4 slices bread torn into small pieces
½ cup milk
1 egg lightly beaten
3 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp dried basil
¼ tsp dried thyme leaves, crumbled
¼ tsp ground pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350; oil an 8 x 5 loaf pan.
2. In medium bowl combine the onion, turkey, bread pieces, milk, egg, ketchup, cheese, garlic powder, basil, thyme, and pepper; mix well. Shape into loaf and transfer to pan. Bake until browned and cooked through, 50-60 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
