Mom's Turkey Meatloaf

3/4 c quick-cooking oats
1/2 c nonfat milk
1 medium onion, peeled
2 lbs ground turkey breast
1/2 c seeded and chopped red bell pepper (1/2 medium pepper)
2 large eggs, beaten
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 c ketchup
1/2 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper
One 8-ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, stir together the oats and milk and allow to soak while you get the rest of the ingredients together, at least 3 minutes.

Thinly slice one-quarter of the onion into rings and set aside. Finely chop the rest of the onion. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, oatmeal mixture, chopped onion, bell pepper, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, salt and a few grinds of pepper. Mix just until combined.

Transfer the mixture to a 9x13 inch baking dish and shape into a loaf about 5 inches wide and 2 inches high. Pour tomato sauce over the meatloaf and sprinkle with the sliced onions. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 160 degrees, about 1 hour.

Remove from oven and let rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
