Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf Recipe


In an attempt to get away from red meat a little bit I decided on this Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf Recipe. This is a simple recipe with not a lot of prep time. The recipe calls for Colby cheese, which I did use, but I think American cheese would work just as well. Be sure to allow enough cooking time; it did take a good hour before it was done. I served the Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf with a potato casserole dish, but  it would also go great with mashed potatoes or rice. If you would like to get away from the red meat a little bit give this Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf Recipe a try and enjoy.
