Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Yum
Replace ground beef with a healthier alternative and add cheese and you have this AMAZING Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf! #recipe

Lately, I've been running out of main dish recipes that aren't pasta or carb-heavy. I've been trying to keep it to one carb heavy dinner per week and that can be a bit difficult at times. For some reason, I always forget about meatloaf. My family likes meatloaf with veggies in it, so you can't go wrong with a hunk of meat and veggies for dinner with some veggies for sides. Not carb heavy at all and everyone is happy.

I have never tried turkey meatloaf but I really wanted to. I've been using a lot more ground turkey lately and it's such a great meat to use! This recipe was amazing. I think what really set it apart from other meatloaves I've tried is the milk and bread crumb mixture. The outcome is a very melt-in-your-mouth type texture overall and it's incredible :) The cubes of cheese throughout the meatloaf also set it apart from any other meatloaf I've ever had and I don't think I could honestly make another meatloaf without wishing it had cheese cubes in it!
