Lean ground turkey makes this Turkey Meatloaf
Recipe a healthy alternative to a 'classic' version with beef. A spicy, thick glaze keeps the meat
most, and thick-chopped vegetables are both flavorful and add a tasty crunch. This is a
weekday staple in our home because it makes terrific leftovers and sandwiches.
Our Turkey Meatloaf is very wine-friendly, and we enjoy it with a
light-bodied, spicy red wine. A heavy red would overpower the flavor of the turkey, and spicy
flavors play up the heat of the glaze. A classically styled Pinot Noir is an excellent choice,
but a Chianti or lighter Zinfandel would also pair nicely.
