In revisiting this classic, we put the meat back in the “loaf” by using ultra-lean ground beef and turkey. With fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs and beer-simmered sweet onions, you'll never notice the missing fat.

"Overall, very nice flavor and texture. I thought the thyme dominated too much. Next time, I'll try a different seasoning profile, perhaps just slug of Worcestershire. "

Made this several times and it was always a big hit. Makes fantastic leftovers sandwiches. My only modification was to use red wine instead of the beer, since I already had it, and it still tasted great.


My husband and I LOVED this! Leftovers were amazing, either as sandwiches or reheated with potatoes. Even if you don't like meatloaf, you should try this - it's not the typical recipe!


This is the most AMAZING meatloaf I have ever made. I really like the flavors - beer, mustard, spices - and the fact that it is not all ground beef. And leftovers are so very good in sandwiches (whole grain bread, canola-oil mayo and fresh tomato for topping) - wow, yummm!
