Turkey Meatloaf

Use ground turkey instead of beef for a leaner source of protein. Herbs and vegetables add fresh flavor, so you won't need traditional gravy, which contains more butter and heavy cream.

Servings: 4 Prep 20 mins Cook 30 mins Start to Finish 50 mins


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup minced yellow onion
  • 1/4 cup minced carrot
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Add oil to a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute 2-3 minutes or until soft. Add carrots and continue to saute until just soft, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat.

2. In a large bowl, combine thyme, egg, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce. Add ground turkey and mix thoroughly. Toss in the bread crumbs and combine with turkey mixture until incorporated. Form 4 equal-size loaves and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake until internal temperature reads 165* F (use a meat thermometer to check) and loaves are firm.
