Stuffed Turkey Meat Loaf

I went grocery shopping today. Since the fridge is still not working 100%, I figured I pick up just enough meat to cook for dinner. It would also be great if we could eat the left overs the next day. While in the meat aisle, I noticed ground turkey was on sale and suddenly the choice was a no brainer.

Meatloaf it is!

Now I have always loved making meatloaf. It is probably one of the simplest dishes to prepare, and the right size can probably last at least 3 meals (depending on how much you eat.) Well that being said, in our house it normally lasts dinner and a midnight snack for me.

I started by getting all the dry ingredients out and chopping the onion.

Turkey Meatloaf Onions & Dry Ingredients

In a bowl, I mixed all the ingredients (ground turkey, onion, dry ingredients, egg, and coconut milk.) and mixed thoroughly with your hands.

Meatloaf Mixture

I put half the ground turkey mixture in a loaf pan, followed by a layer of the shredded cheese and covered it with the remaining ground turkey mixture.
