Turkey Meatloaf

Meatloaf is one of the ultimate comfort foods. However, the traditional version using ground beef can really pack on the fat and calories. Our version, using turkey meatloaf, adds a lot of flavor, but serves as a healthier option.

What you’ll need:

For meatloaf:
One package lean ground turkey (about 1.5 lbs)
1 large onion, diced
½ cup mushrooms, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
¾ cup bread crumbs (we prefer Panko)
1 egg
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. of low-sodium soy or teriyaki sauce
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tbsp. of oregano or parsley (increase by 1 tablespoon if using fresh)
Splash of water or low-sodium chicken broth (about 3 tablespoons)
Optional – 1 tbsp. of brown sugar
Optional – 2 tbsp. of hot pepper sauce

For topping:
1/3 cup of organic ketchup (no high fructose corn syrup). Can add a little more if desired.

Mix all ingredients together except the ketchup in a large bowl. Place meat mixture onto a baking sheet or broiler pan that is coated with non-stick spray OR parchment paper. Mold into a rectangular meatloaf shape. Spread ketchup mixture over top. Bake on 350 degrees for 45 min. Let meatloaf sit a few minutes before slicing.

Tastes great with smashed fingerling potatoes and asparagus. For a lower carb option, serve only with vegetables.
