Luckily for me, my mother-in-law is none of those things! She is just as sweet, loving, and caring as her son. And apparently she makes one heck of a meatloaf! Several weeks ago when I asked Kyle what he wanted for suppers that week he said, "Meatloaf. But make it like my mom." So with a little advice from my MIL Nancy and some healthy adaptations here is my recipe for Ma's Turkey Meatloaf. The turkey bacon on top and steak seasoning make a big taste difference..kudos mamma B!
Enjoy! Maybe invite your mother in law over for a delicious dinner of healthy comfort food...or not! :)

1 package Jenny-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey
3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs (or whole wheat)
1/2 c. skim milk
1 medium onion peeled and diced
2 eggs beaten (you can also use just whites to be even healthier)
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
2 T. steak seasoning (I used a dry seasoning but you could use Dale's too)
1/4c ketchup + ketchup to top loaf once in pan
3 slices turkey bacon
Preheat oven to 350. Combine breadcrumbs and milk. Let soak for 1 minute. Combine all ingredients except turkey bacon. Combine until well mixed. Transfer into a loaf pan. Top with a generous coat of ketchup to your liking. Place 3 strips of turkey bacon across top of the loaf covering it completely.
Bake 1 hour. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
