Dig into meatloaf like you find in your local diner, homemade and partnered with mashed potatoes and gravy.
If you like bell pepper, onions, and celery in your meatloaf, you may find that it may remain pink even though the beef is cooked to 160°F in the center. It's due to the natural nitrate content of these ingredients. So it is best to always check meatloaf with a thermometer to make sure it is thoroughly cooked.
Use ground turkey for the beef. Bake about 60 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the center of the loaf reads 165°F.
You can use 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs or 1/2 cup quick- cooking oats for the 2 slices bread. Just add it to the beef mixture.
Almost any size pan will work; just be sure the pan has sides to catch the juices that will accumulate while the meatloaf bakes.
Cut a small slit near center of loaf; meat and juices should no longer be pink.
