Turkey Meatloaf

One of my good friends was coming over for a visit, and I knew I needed to make something for dinner that would serve more than two people (I often make things with 2 fish filets or 2 chicken breasts). I still had 1lb of ground turkey in the freezer from when I caught a sale. I wanted to do something different with it, and I had never made a meatloaf completely from scratch (I always use a seasoning packet). I found this recipe on Cooking Light’s website and was happy to discover I had all the ingredients, except the fresh parsley, for which I just subbed dried. I served it with roasted sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli, because that’s what I had on hand. I halved the recipe for the three of us. It came together really fast, and once cooked, was VERY tasty! No more seasoning packets for this girl!


Turkey Meatloaf


2 pounds ground turkey breast
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dried oregano
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Cooking spray
1/4 cup ketchup


Preheat oven to 400°. Combine the first 10 ingredients in a large bowl.

Place the turkey mixture in a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Top with 1/4 cup ketchup. Bake at 400° for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until done. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
