Dave and Ann Marie came over tonight and brought all the fixings for dinner, which was so appreciated and OMG, so delicious!
There was quite a bit of discussion about serving this to my brother-in-law, Jason, without telling him the ingredients, because it's THAT good.
I hate mushrooms, they squick me out something fierce, but OMG, in this meatloaf, they are divine! They give the turkey loaf a meaty moisture and a beefy flavor that is often lacking in turkey loaf recipes.
We had it with a mixed green salad and mashed potatoes; but I can't wait to make sandwiches with the leftovers tomorrow!

So without further adieu, the OMG Meatloaf
