    1 hr 15 mins


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook turkey bacon until browned and crisp, about 5 minutes per side. Drain bacon on paper towels; crumble when cool.
  3. Mix cooked bacon with ground turkey, Cheddar cheese, egg, onion, crumbled French bread, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and black pepper; turn the turkey meatloaf mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish and form into a loaf shape in the middle of the dish.
  4. Mix ketchup, yellow mustard, and brown sugar together in a bowl, stirring to dissolve brown sugar. Spread the mixture over the turkey loaf.
  5. Bake the turkey loaf in the preheated oven until the juices run clear, loaf is no longer pink in the middle, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the loaf reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees F), 45 minutes to 1 hour.

What a great recipe. I use regular bacon because I like it more. I use panko bread crumbs because I don't have to have a loaf of bread hanging around. I dice onions and peppers saute' them with minced garlic. I don't use as much garlic powder maybe half or less than what is called for. For cheese I'll use whatever I have on hand. The sauce is great and I add a squirt of sirracha. I also broil it for the last 5 minutes just to crust it all up. Great flexible recipe. My wife loves it and I do too.

Not bad but not great either. Tasted nothing like a cheeseburger Made it with my gf. Her son didn't like it at all but her and I ate ours. I think it was a bit bland once you got past the sauce that was on top. The sauce however was great. Maybe if you used beef that's lean in place of turkey and add a lit more seasoning

This is the meatloaf for people that usually don't prefer it. My husband and young kids are the pickiest eaters, I am always trying new and different recipes and this was an absolute hit! It tastes just like a cheeseburger, yum. The only thing I changed was using a tsp of onion powder in place of diced onion. I will definitely be making this again.

Fantastic recipe! I plan to make this regularly and I will add more turkey bacon because I love what it brings to the dish! Sauce is perfect, and I never eat mustard.

Best Meatloaf EVER! Next time, I'll try using peppered bacon for some extra kick!

Delicious! I added crispy onion straws mixed with some cheddar cheese the last 10 minutes! Make sure you let this 'set' for about 10 minutes before slicing.

My husband and I really liked this, but my children (ages 7 & 9) didn't care for it.
