Recipe Girl's Turkey Meatloaf

Ive just recently discovered Recipe Girl.  Not all of her recipes that she blogs about are healthy or low calorie but there's a few benefits to this.  Firstly, Ive been able to use my knowledge of nutrition & substitution to alter these recipes to make them a little more healthful.  Secondly, it lets me get a little creative with things.  It's almost like a game.

Anyways, my brother came over for a late dinner this evening & I thought that meatloaf would be ideal.  He's very much a meat & potatoes kind of guy.  I served this with steamed broccoli over another Recipe Girl dish -- brown buttered rice.  Such a delicious combination!
