I started making this meatloaf about six or seven years ago. I had ground turkey and i thought about making meatloaf but I was out of oatmeal and breadcrumbs so I was trying think of what else I could use I was actually going to the pantry to grab the rice when I saw a box of stuffing mix and thought yummm! This meatloaf incorporates all the flavors of turkey and stuffing just add your favorite side dish and enjoy thanksgiving dinner all year long. You will need

2lbs ground turkey
1 package stuffing mix (I used the grainless baker gluten free stuffing. This particular stuffing needs to be crushed up a little because the pieces are big. I also find the grainless baker stuffing to be a little under seasoned for my taste so I would add a tsp of celery salt and sage)
4 eggs
1 onion chopped
2 celery stalks chopped
1 cup craisins or chopped apples
4 tbsp flax meal (this is optional but I like to sneak flax in wherever I can)

This recipe makes 2 meatloafs I always make two one to eat now and one to freeze for later. The directions are simple just mix everything together add salt and pepper if you like and bake for 45 minutes to an hour on 350 degrees. I sometimes spread a thin layer of cranberry sauce over the top like you would ketchup.

I’ve also added sausage to this we usually add maple sausage to our stuffing. You can add anything you normally would put in your own stuffing.
