 *NOTE: If you can not find Bell’s meatloaf mix, substitute up to 3/4 
 cup bread crumbs, 1 tablespoon dried parsley, 1/4 teaspoon each basil 
 and thyme. Mix all together and reserve.
 1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Follow directions on the meatloaf mix 
 package to reconstitute OR use alternate mix found in the note above.
 2. Mix in turkey, celery Add onion, garlic, egg if desired. If using 
 the alternate meatloaf mix, add that to the turkey mixture and mix 
 3. Form meat mixture into a loaf slightly shorter than the length of 
 the turkey bacon.
 4. Place bacon strips lengthwise over the loaf all the way around it 
 so that it is encased in the strips. Use toothpicks, if necessary to 
 secure ends.
 5. Spray a cooking rack with the nonstick cooking spray or use the 
 olive oil to coat. Place rack onto a cookie sheet that has sides. 
 Place turkey loaf on the rack. Bake one hour at 450 degrees until the 
 outer bacon is very crisp.
 Typed by Lynn Thomas. Recipe by Tom Orton. Tom’s notes: This is kinda 
 plebian, but makes a very good low fat meatloaf..I have found in that 
 in the bottom of the pan is about 1 tbsp. of fat. I like to serve 
 this with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed spinach with tarragon. 
 Lynn’s notes: I made this 2-10-97. I used all of the optional 
 ingredients and this was the best turkey loaf I've ever tasted. When 
 cooked, the loaf resembles a football and would be good served at a 
 Super Bowl Party.
