Have you ever forgotten to take the meat you need for dinner out of the freezer in time? Well that is how this recipe was born. I was planning on making burgers but the turkey meat was still too frozen to make into patties. So I thought I’ll just mix all my ingredients together and make a meat loaf. And you know what it was my family’s new favorite!

Meatloaf is often overlooked, but it makes a wonderful winter meal. It’s warm, filling, and and makes for great leftovers! This recipe makes it extra simple to deliver this comfort food to your family’s table and enjoy together on a busy weeknight.
