Clean Asian Turkey Meatloaf

Meatloaf is one of those meals that is like a blank slate.  You can pretty much add anything to your meatloaf and it will taste completely different each time.  I like adding different flavors to my meatloaf, especially if I am trying to make it “clean.”  Let’s be honest, a classic bacon-wrapped meatloaf…using meatloaf mix (ground beef, ground veal, and ground pork), with plenty of seasoning, a ketchup/brown sugar glaze and crispy bacon on top…is my favorite…but this clean turkey meatloaf runs a close second, with plenty of ginger and garlic to add an Asian flair.

Start by mixing all your ingredients in a bowl – ground turkey, egg, oatmeal, soy sauce, green onions, mustard, garlic, ground ginger, and sesame oil.
