Ground Turkey and Veggie Meatloaf

I have to admit that when I was growing up, when mom said we were having meatloaf, I did not have a happy heart!  Meatloaf was definitely not my favorite food.  I think mostly because many recipes for meatloaf don’t have very much flavor.  This ground turkey and veggie meatloaf is the opposite.  It smells amazing when it is baking, and it tastes just as good as it smells!

Ground turkey is the main ingredient in the meatloaf, but you will love how the added vegetables give it extra flavor and keep it moist.  If you have picky eaters and have trouble getting them to eat their veggies, this may be the perfect dinner for your family!  It is also Paleo friendly and can be whole 30 compliant if you use the right ketchup.  Enjoy!
