Making the meat loaf is as easy as combining the ingredients into a large bowl. This is where you can mix with your clean hands and be sure that all the ingredients are mixing together well.

My boys love to eat their meatloaf in their own favorite ways, and since they’re portions, it’s easy to do. If you’re looking for a fun mash up with meatloaf, add in some mashed potatoes for the win!

You can. Ground turkey is a great lean meat option that cuts down on the amount of fat and calories. I’ve substituted for ground turkey from time to time and it still tastes really great!
