Made the BEST meatloaf last night

I just had leftovers from a meatloaf I made last night and it’s so good that I need to share the recipe.

It’s from

Asian-Style Meat Loaves

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 loaf)


  • 1  (3 1/2-ounce) package plain rice crackers (such as ka-me)
  • 1  pound  ground turkey breast
  • 1/2  pound  lean ground pork
  • 1  cup  chopped green onions
  • 1/2  cup  hoisin sauce, divided
  • 1/2  cup  chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2  cup  drained chopped canned water chestnuts
  • 1  tablespoon  low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1  tablespoon  grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 3  garlic cloves, minced
  • 2  large egg whites
  • Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350°.

Place crackers in a food processor; process until finely chopped.

Combine cracker crumbs, turkey, pork, green onions, 1/4 cup hoisin, and remaining ingredients except cooking spray in a large bowl.

Shape mixture into 6 (5 x 2 1/2-inch) loaves on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; spread 2 teaspoons hoisin over top of each meat loaf. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a thermometer registers 165°. Let stand 5 minutes.

It is so moist and yummy.  I think it was even better the day after.  A little high in sodium, but since I don’t have blood pressure issues it wasn’t a problem for me.  You could always do low sodium soy sauce.  Not sure if low sodium hoisin sauce exists though.
