Spicy BBQ Turkey Meatloaf

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 lbs ground turkey
  • 3/4 large onion (approx 1 cup), diced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 slices bacon , crumbled
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika

  • 1/4 tsp ancho powder (for topping)
  • 1/3 cup BBQ sauce (for topping)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare a baking pan by lining it with tin foil and spray the tin foil with non-stick cooking spray or add a baking rack to your pan for your meatloaf to sit on.
  • In a large bowl, combine the turkey, onion, spices, bacon, Worcestershire, Dijon, eggs, 1/3 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce and the breadcrumbs.
  • Using your hands, combine all ingredients until completely incorporated. Rake your fingers through the meat mixture to ensure there are no pockets of unseasoned turkey.
  • Shape the meat mixture into a loaf and place on your pan / rack.
  • Using a basting brush, cover the top of your meatloaf with the remaining 1/3 cup of BBQ sauce. Pour the ancho pepper powder in your hand and evenly sprinkle over the sauce using your fingertips.
  • Bake for 50 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let sit for 10-15 minutes before serving.
