Okay, I admit it…this is a repeat recipe.  The reason?  Because my sister made my meatloaf into a heart and used turkey instead of hamburger.

It was too cute not to post especially with Valentine’s Day right around the corner.   It’s the exact same recipe as my other one, except for using ground turkey.

If you’re still having doubts, make sure to look at the comments on both my blog and on my pins on Pinterest.  You will see everyone loves it.

This meatloaf recipe will win your man’s heart.  (You get that play on words, right?)  Adding either baked or mashed potatoes would make this a perfect meal.  Don’t forget something chocolate for dessert!
