Turkey Meat Loaf

Serves 6
This lighter version of meat loaf will have you coming back for seconds (or thirds). 

2 pounds ground turkey
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dried oregano
3 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup ketchup

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine all ingredients through garlic powder.
Form mixture into loaf shape on greased baking pan or pan lined with baking mat.
Top with remaining ketchup.
Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until done.
Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

You can also bake in a 9"x5" loaf pan coated with cooking spray, but we prefer it baked on a baking sheet as it provides more surface area for a crunchier ketchup coated top.
