This is a unique variation to the classic recipe of cheeseburger meatloaf. This variation of the recipe is prepared using ground turkey and contains pieces of turkey bacon in the middle instead of using pork or beef. The main USP of this inventive dish is the delightful sauces made with a mixture of ketchup, mustard and brown sugar.

Preparation Time: 20 Minutes
Cooking Time: 55 Minutes
Turkey bacon – 7 slices
Extra lean ground turkey – 1 pound
Cheddar cheese, shredded – 1 cup
Egg – 1
Vegetable oil – 1 teaspoon
Onion, diced – ½
French bread, crumbled – 1 slice
Worcestershire sauce – 2 tablespoons
Garlic powder – 2 teaspoons
Ground black pepper – ¼ teaspoon
Ketchup – ¼ cup
Yellow mustard – 2 tablespoons
Brown sugar – 1½ tablespoons
Preheat your oven to a temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 175 degrees Celsius.
Heat up a large skillet on medium high heat and add vegetable oil in it. Add in the turkey bacon and cook on one side until browned, then flip over and cook on the other side until it turns brown and crisp. This should take about 5 minutes on each side. Remove the bacon from the pan and place over paper towels to drain the excess oil. Once it cools down, crumble using your hands and keep aside.
Add the ground turkey in a large mixing bowl and add in the cheddar cheese, onion, egg, crumbled French breast, and cooked and crumbled bacon and mix everything together well until well incorporated. Season the mixture with black pepper, salt and garlic powder and mix well to incorporate. Place the prepare meatloaf mixture in the middle of a 9×13 baking dish in such a way so as to form a loaf shape.
Take another bowl and add in the yellow mustard, brown sugar and ketchup. Stir well until the brown sugar dissolves completely. Spread this prepared mixture on top of the turkey loaf.
Bake the turkey loaf in your preheat oven till the loaf doesn’t look pink in the middle anymore and the juices run clear. This can also be checked using an instant read meat thermometer. When inserted into the thickest area of the loaf, the thermometer should read 160 degrees Fahrenheit or more. The entire baking process should take about 45 minutes to 1 hour depending upon your oven.
Once ready, allow to cool down a little and serve along with sides of your choice.
