Slow-Cooker Glazed Turkey Meatloaf
Why This Recipe Works
It might come as a surprise that you can cook meatloaf in a slow cooker, but we've found that the gentle and moist heat is the ideal cooking environment for this comfort food classic. Using ground turkey instead of the standard mix of pork and beef made this meatloaf lower overall in both calories and fat. Adding coarsely chopped mushrooms gave us the deep meaty flavor of using a combination of meats, without the additional fat. Be sure to use 93 percent lean ground turkey, not ground turkey breast (also labeled 99 percent fat free). Check the meatloaf's temperature after 2 hours of cooking and continue to monitor until it registers 160 degrees. You will need an oval slow cooker for this recipe.
