Stuffed Turkey Meatloaf

I have been making this recipe for many years and it has taken me years to put it on my blog.  I really don’t know why since my kids devour this meatloaf, especially when I add some turkey gravy to it.  I found this recipe in the Winnipeg Free Press “Recipe Swap Favorites” cookbook by Ilana Simon.  I have made this meatloaf in the morning and cooked it later for dinner.  I often serve this with mashed potatoes and a vegetable.

1 1/2 pounds (750 g) ground turkey
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup (125 ml) milk
3/4 cup (175 ml) dry bread crumbs
1 tsp (5 ml) salt
1/2 tsp (2 ml) pepper
1 envelope stuffing mix (such as Stovetop), prepared according to directions on box

1. Mix ground turkey, egg, milk, bread crumbs, salt and pepper in a bowl.
2. Pack some in the bottom of a 9x5x3 inch (22x12x7 cm) loaf pan to make 1/2 inch (12 mm) layer. Then press same thickness of meat to form walls up from layer about 2 inches high.
