BBQ Glazed Turkey Meatloaf

I have tried probably 3 dozen meatloaf recipes over the years. When I was younger I hated my Mom's meatloaf. I remember having to sit at the table until I ate it, and it was dark outside and the evening news was on, and I was still left sitting there. For some odd reason I didnt give up on meatloaf though. When I became the chef of the house, I made it my mission to figure out how to make meatloaf I love. In prior tries I found recipes I liked.....but when I made this one it was TRUE LOVE. I have made this about 5 times in the past few months and I just love it. It is so easy, no fancy ingredients, so juicy and it comes out perfect every time. Had great color to it, not the weird gray sometimes turkey meatloaf can be. I love this meatloaf and even looking at the picture I wish I had a few bites.
