Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 60 minutes
¾ cups quick cooking oats
½ cup nonfat milk
1 medium onion, peeled
2 pounds ground turkey
½ cup seeded and chopped red bell pepper (1/2 medium pepper)
2 large eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup ketchup
½ teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper
One 8-oz. can no-salt added tomato sauce
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, stir together the oats and milk and allow to soak while you get the rest of the ingredients together, at least 3 minutes.
Finely chop the onion.
In a large bowl, combine the turkey, oatmeal mixture, chopped onion, bell pepper, eggs, Worcestershire, ketchup, salt and a few grinds of pepper. Mix just until well combined.
Transfer the mixture to a 9 x 13-inch baking dish and shape into a loaf about 5 inches wide and 2 inches high. Pour the tomato sauce over the meatloaf.
Bake until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 160 degrees, about 1 hour.
Remove from oven and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
