Flavorful Turkey Meatloaf or Turkey Loaf

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

I combined my favorite ideas from several Zaar turkey meatloaf recipes and came up with a winner that's moist and flavorful (my husband told me I had to write this one down). The optional gravy is based on Traditional Roast Beef With Gravy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Combine turkey, salt, sage, thyme and oregano.
  3. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Put it in a loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes to an hour, till the top edges are nicely browned.
  5. For optional gravy, combine stock, wine and tomato paste. Set aside. Cook butter and flour over low heat until it forms a paste. Raise the heat to medium and add the stock mixture, stirring frequently until it boils and thickens. Cook for about three minutes.

I am a big fan of meatloaf and I enjoyed this one very much! I thought the spices worked wonderfully and I loved the flavor of the sun-dried tomatoes. This was a very moist meatloaf and this one didn't have the rubbery texture that turkey often has. I ended up not making the gravy this time, as I had a mushroom/marsala sauce on hand. I cooked until 160 degrees. Thanks picholine for posting. I'll be making this one again.

Loved this recipe. It is moist and flavorfull! I use a catsup-salsa topping that I like instead of the gravy listed. I think the mushrooms give it more moisture, but if family members don't like it leave it out. I love thesun-dried tomatoes in it also. I have passed this on to several people.<br/>Thanks for a great meatloaf recipe for those of us who cannot tolerate beef or pork. Carole in Olando
