This turkey meatloaf is virtually the same recipe as my low-carb turkey meatballs–with the exception of oats in place of the breadcrumbs. I also do an organic beef version with the addition of sauteed onions, which is just as good, if not better. Both limit the starch addition to make it friendlier to a low-carb or diabetic lifestyle. That being said, I still like to serve it with a squirt of low-sugar catsup, since catsup (in my mom’s case–baked right on top) is how I remember it growing up. Serve with mashed cauliflower in place of the mashed potatoes and you have a just-as-hearty family dinner!
