Unbelievable Turkey Meatloaf

In trying to implement better eating habits in my family we are trying to eat less red meat. However, meatloaf has always been a family favorite. I have experimented with ground turkey until I have come up with a recipe that is almost as good as beef meatloaf.

Served with mashed potatoes and peas, it makes a healthy meal.

Unbelievable Turkey Meatloaf
--1 lb. ground turkey
--1/2 cup breadcrumbs
--1 large egg, beaten
--1 medium carrot, shredded
--1 medium onion, minced
--1/4 cup ketchup
--1/2 tsp minced garlic
--1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
--1/4 tsp celery seeds
--1 tsp salt
--1/2 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine turkey and bread crumbs in a large bowl. Add shredded carrots and minced onions and fold into turkey mixture. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well with your hands. Form into a loaf and place in lightly greased 9 x 12 pan. Cover with foil and bake for one hour. Remove foil and continue baking for 15 to 30 more minutes or until cooked through. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Enjoy
