BBQ Turkey Meatloaf with Bulgar

Who doesn’t love meatloaf? I certainly do, and it’s so easy to make. It’s a great week night meal, and makes excellent leftovers. I’m not a huge fan of leftovers but I will always make a meatloaf sandwich! I used turkey breast mince for this but you can use any type of mince you want. I personally find that using turkey breast tastes better and doesn’t make you feel as weighed down as beef or pork, combined with the bulgar wheat that I added it just keeps it lighter. This easily serves 4, and will make leftovers as well.

500g turkey breast mince
½ red pepper
1 small onion
1 stalk celery
¼ c. bulgar wheat
2 eggs
200g tinned tomatoes (half a can, you can use fresh though)
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. pepper
½ - 1 c. BBQ sauce

To Start:
Preheat oven to 190C or 375F
Dice pepper onion celery.
In a large bowl combine all ingredients except the BBQ sauce (mixing with hands is best!).

To Cook:
In a small oven dish, place the meatloaf mixture in and spread it out.
Pour the BBQ sauce on top and spread around creating an even layer.
Pop in the oven and bake for 35-45 minutes. You’ll know it’s done because the meat will pull away from the sides and be bubbly in the middle.
