Easy Bacon Infused Turkey Meat Loaf


I was reading the Better Homes and Gardens Mexican Weeknight Easy magazine and came upon a cool Tortas Hamburguesas recipe.  I liked the bacon/onion technique used in the recipe.  So I decided to incorporate the technique into an easy turkey meat loaf recipe. You will love my super easy recipe for Bacon Infused Turkey Meat Loaf; cuz how can you go  wrong with bacon.

turkey meat loaf

Recipe Serves 4


1 and 1/4 lb lean ground turkey.

4 thick cut slices of bacon – chopped into small pieces.

1 egg –  beaten.

3/4 cup bread crumbs.

1/2 cup onion – diced.

2 cloves garlic – minced.

1/4 tsp salt.

1/4 tsp dried sage.

1/4 tsp pepper.

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce.

1 tablespoon ketchup.

1 tablespoon, or less, butter.

BBQ sauce.


Melt butter in fry pan on low heat and then add onion. Saute a minute and then add garlic, and then the chopped up bacon bits.  Raise heat medium high, add 1 Tbsp of ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce, stir and cook until bacon is cooked but not hard.  Remove from heat and cool.

To a large pot add: ground turkey. bread crumbs, sage, pepper, salt, and the egg.  Mix contents by hand.  Then add the onion/bacon mixture and mix by hand.

Place the ground turkey mixture in a baking pan, pat it down a little to get rid of any internal voids, and then spread BBQ sauce over the top.  Bake uncovered at 375 degrees F for one hour and ten minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees.  When fully cooked let the meat loaf rest on the counter a few minutes before removing from baking pan.

Serve the meal with a side of  potatoes, rice, or pasta with butter and garlic sauce.

And that’s all there is to making my Bacon Infused  Turkey Meat Loaf.


I’m very proud to share this recent 5-Star review on my new novel.




Reviewed By Eileen Johnson for Readers’ Favorite – 5 starsIn Veyron by Roger Scouton, Jack Fields and Amber Reyes are a high powered team hired to oversee a security job at the Marine Corps Warrior’s Hospice Car Rally, a rally of classic cars in Arizona. The most classic and most expensive of the cars in the rally is a Bugatti Veyron owned by Prince Ahmed. Jack and Amber are ex-military and clandestine operatives hired by the insurance firm in London to work with Colonel Day, whose organization is providing security for the event. Of course, the event does not proceed as planned, as priceless cars are stolen, owners are killed, and the Prince is kidnapped during the rally. Now, Jack and Amber are required to use their considerable skills and connections to solve the mystery and bring the perpetrators to justice.Veyron is a sequel to Roger Scouton’s book Goldplay in which readers were first introduced to Jack and Amber, the team of protagonists in his new novel. Not having read the first novel, I am sure there is some back story that describes how Jack and Amber ended up being a couple and a team. However, Veyron definitely stands on its own and the reader should not feel compelled to read Goldplay first. Having said that, the energy, characters, and plot line in Veyron were so interesting that I intend to go back and read Goldplay, too! The best part about Veyron is that the reader essentially gets three stories in one book. The characters are the glue that holds the book together – and the primary and secondary characters are wonderful. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes action, adventure, and mystery.
