The topping of ketchup and brown sugar keeps this so moist.
My meatloaf really is a combination spanning 3 generations. I use some of my mom's ingredients, some of my grandmas, some of mine. And while I have measured it our for you in this recipe, really it is never the same, I just throw it all in.

What you'll need + an egg (I always forget the egg in pictures, lol)


HEART SHAPED TURKEY MEATLOAVES

INGREDIENTS
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 lb ground sirloin
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
5 saltine crackers
2 Tablespoons Italian breadcrumbs
1/4 cup regular breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon Worchestishire sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
any other seasonings as desired
2 Tablespoons ketchup

Topping
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
3 Tablespoons ketchup

DIRECTIONS
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spay muffin tin with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, place turkey and sirloin. Add to it all the other ingredients and mix with large spoon or your hands. Place a sixth of mixture in each heart. Mix the topping ingredients and spread on each heart meatloaf and bake uncovered for about 30 minutes or til center of a meatloaf is no longer pink.

  10. What a cute idea, Andrea! And pink mashed potatoes? I would eat them any day of the week! I love the idea of making little meatloafs too -- I was going to try them in muffin tins but the heart shaped tins are about 1,000 times cuter! Happy Valentine's Day!

  26. So creative and delish looking! Pretty much all the ingredients I use to make my (turkey) meatloaf but the sirloin addition sounds so good. So neat you made the loaf into heart bites for the loves in your life to enjoy. I have never seen pink mashed potatoes before but what a way to make a picture perfect dish! xoxo

  36. Pink potatoes? Of course you would have pink potatoes to go with your heart-shaped meatloaves. You are too cute. I haven't stopped thinking about your dessert with the chocolate chip cookie crust and cheesecake-like filling. I have to get a heart muffin tin and then I will be all over these recipes.
