Lean ground turkey, onions and a little bit of bacon create a delicious and moist meatloaf!  My whole family loves this!

Delicious and ground turkey don’t always belong in the same sentence let alone in the same recipe… this one is an exception to the rule.  The chopped up bacon gives a little bit of needed moisture to the turkey and this meat loaf comes out tender and flavorful!

We usually have a little left over and I can’t help but enjoy it cold right out of the fridge the next day for lunch!

If you are not familiar with Chili Sauce, it is NOT spicy but is just a deliciously zesty sauce similar to ketchup but less sweet and way more flavor.

  1. Is the bacon cooked before you add it to the mixture? I know the ones you add to the top are most likely raw, but wasnt to sure about the bacon mixed in, thank you in advance!

  2. Does this recipe call for ground ..raw turkey?
