Turkey Meatloaf and Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus Recipe Tips
My family has been making this recipe for a few years now and here are some tips I've learned over the years.
I like to make the turkey meatloaf into 4 mini meatloaves for easy portion controlled servings.
You could also make 1 larger meatloaf - just increase the cooking time for about 5 additional minutes.
You can swap out the potatoes and asparagus for other veggies! A few of our favorites are carrots, broccoli and fresh green beans.
How to Store Leftovers
To store leftovers, place the leftover turkey meatloaves and roasted potatoes and asparagus in an airtight container. Leftovers will stay fresh for up to 3 days in the refridgerator.
To reheat, microwave for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
What temperature do you cook Turkey Meatloaf at?

Tools Needed to Make the Recipe
To make this recipe, I like to use some tools. Some of these tools might be tricky to find in all stores so I pulled them together in Amazon Affiliate links to make it easer:
Can I freeze Turkey Meatloaf?
The turkey meatloaf loaves can be frozen up to 5 months. To freeze, wrap individually in saran wrap and then put into an airtight container.
To defrost, take out 24 hours prior to serving and defrost in the refridgerator. Reheat in the microwave.
I do not recommend freezing the potatoes or asparagus.

The secret in this recipe to making the turkey meatloaf moist is using the right amount of BBQ and breadcrumbs. After testing a few rounds I found that this recipe is the perfect balance.

Yes! The ground turkey can be swapped out at a 1:1 ratio for ground beef - please note this will make the nutritional information change.
