… unless she was ultra stealthy and determined to sneak fruit into your diet! This outlier of a meatloaf contains dried and diced fruit, mustard, sage and apricot preserves, as well as ground turkey instead of the typical red meat. But despite the odd ingredient list, it is actually very tasty, not too sweet, not dry, and bonus– the calorie and fat count is low! If you form the meat mixture into small or even individual loaves, it saves you cooking time.
