Sage Turkey Meatloaf

One of our client sent us this amazing recipe for little individual turkey meatloafs and she said they were amazing. I just wanted to edit a couple of things in the original recipe to make it a little more in line with our Millennium Program that we are working on. The gravy included half a cup of apple cider, which I’m sure made the gravy wonderful, has a bit of sugar in it, natural sugar I know, but sugar nonetheless, so I took it out.
