Turkey and Vegetable Loaf

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by SusieQusie

This impressive-looking turkey meatloaf is flavored with herbs and a layer of juicy tomatoes and zucchini. As well as the presentation, the baking method caught my attention. It's baked in a water bath to retain the moisture of the ground turkey. The recipe calls for all fresh herbs but dried could certainly be substitute at a ratio of 1 tablespoon fresh = 1 teaspoon dried.

I used lean ground veal cause the turkey I found was frozen and too expensive. It was delicious. I didn't use tarragon. It's very different from other meatloaves. Thanks Susie :) Made for 123 hit wonders.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF and line a non-stick loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place the onion, garlic, turkey and herbs in a bowl. Mix together with your hands then add the egg white to bind.
  3. Press 1/2 of mixture into preapred pan. Arrange sliced zucchini and tomatoes over meat. Top with the rest of the turkey and press down firmly.
  4. Cover with kitchen foil and place in a roasting pan. Pour in enough hot water to come halfway up the sides of the loaf pan.
  5. Bake for 1-1 1/4 hours, removing foil during the last 20 minutes. Test by inserting a skewer in the center of loaf; juices should run clear. The loaf will also shrink away from the sides when done.
  6. Remove from pan and transfer to a warm platter. Serve with warmed tomato sauce if desired.
