Meatloaf is one of those fabulous good-old-fashioned comfort foods that’s super easy to make, since it entails just mixing all ingredients in a bowl then tossing it in the oven for a while. I’ve tried several variations (meatloaf is highly customizable!) but this is by far my favorite - it’s full of flavor and the easiest to prepare.



~2 lbs ground turkey (or ground beef)

2 large eggs, beaten (I used EggBeaters)

~¾ cup bread crumbs
~½ cup ketchup
~1 TBSP garlic powder
~¼ - ½ tsp ground black pepper
seasonings (about 1-2 tsp each): rosemary, thyme, sage, marjoram
dash of salt (optional - I don’t use any)
extra ketchup for glaze (optional)
Note: For a different kind of kick, replace the ketchup with A1 or your favorite steak or barbecue sauce

Heat oven to 400F. Grease a 5x9 or 4x8 loaf pan.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl until a mixture similar to bread dough forms. Transfer to loaf pan and pat down into a loaf shape. Spread a thin layer of ketchup on top for a tangy glaze.


Bake at 400F for 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 165F. Let it cool for 5-10 minutes before serving with your favorite side.


Note: Leftovers can be reheated for about 30 seconds per slice on max power.
