Trisha Yearwood has admitted to her Food Network series Trisha’s Southern Cooking That comfort classic meatloaf has gotten a bad reputation over the years. She acknowledged that the flavor of the meat has a lot to do with the ingredients used. Flavors of choice for Yearwood’s turkey meatloaf include sautéed onions, ketchup, and other add-ins that enhance the flavor profile of the finished dish.

On top, Yearwood adds ketchup to her turkey meatloaf mix straight from the bottle. This traditional meatloaf topper makes a delicious crust and sauce for meat mixtures.
Further, Trisha tops with chopped onions sprinkled with salt and pepper. These will caramelize and soften as the meat cooks.
The meat is put in the oven to bake for about an hour.
Trisha likes simple comfort foods
in an interview with redbook magazine, Yearwood claimed that his food philosophy revolves around passion and simplicity.
“A lot of people come up to me and say, ‘I don’t really cook much, but I tried your meat, and it was so easy and delicious,’” Yearwood says.
“This kind of thing is the biggest compliment possible to me because I think some of the best food is the simplest and most basic of things.”
