Bacon Topped Petite Turkey Meatloaf

Another delicious low calorie recipe.

I promised you all on Facebook that the recipes I shared would be healthy, low fat, low calorie and would taste good, I wouldn't share something that was bland or resembled a piece of cardboard. LOL

This one is also from Skinny Taste. I substituted the bacon with Turkey Bacon, I also used Homemade Breadcrumbs made from 45 calorie bread, so the it does cut down the calories a little more than the original recipe.
