Consider this meatloaf recipe a blueprint, then tweak the flavour to suit your mood. Go Italian by adding basil to the meat and brushing the top with fat-free marinara. Or head to Mexico by seasoning the meat with cumin, chipotles, and cilantro, then serving it with salsa.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Using your hands or a wooden spoon, in a large bowl, mix the turkey, breadcrumbs, carrot, mushrooms, onion, tomato sauce, egg, garlic, Worcestershire, salt, and black pepper. Shape the mixture into a 4-by-8-inch loaf on the prepared pan. Brush all over with the ketchup.
