Barbecue Turkey Meatloaf

I am happy to report that the first meal from my first full week of planned meals was a success. This recipe came from and was the first time I ever cooked or even thought about cooking with Special K cereal.

The Meatloaf has a surprisingly creamy texture and very flavorful. Prior to baking, the mixture is extremely wet, but this makes a very moist meatloaf. The only change I made to the original recipe was the addition of 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce to the Barbecue sauce.


1/2 cup catchup

3 Tbs honey

1 Tbs prepared mustard

2 Tbs vinegar

1 Tbs Worcestershire Sauce

2 egg whites

2 cups Special K®

2 Tbs chopped onion

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 1/2 lbs lean ground turkey


1. To make Barbecue Sauce, measure catchup, honey, mustard, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce into small mixing bowl; stir to combine. Set aside.

2. In large mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add cereal, onion, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup Barbecue Sauce; beat well. Add ground turkey; mix until combined. Shape turkey mixture into loaf in foil-lined shallow baking pan. Score top by making diagonal grooves with knife; fill grooves and brush top of turkey loaf with remaining Barbecue Sauce.

3. Bake at 350°F about 1 hour. Cool slightly; slice to serve.
