The original recipe for this came from Joan Lunden's Healthy Cooking. I've changed a couple things to our tastes. This is a very moist,delicious meat loaf. Its my favorite. I leave the topping off as my family doesn't care for it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place oatmeal, milk and turkey in a large bowl. Mix well.
  3. Add egg white, onion, garlic, bell pepper ( I use both kinds), ketchup, oregano, cumin and salt and pepper.
  4. Mix well.
  5. Place mixture in a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Press into pan and smooth the top.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes.
  7. While it is baking, mix topping.
  8. In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, ketchup and dry mustard.
  9. Remove the meatloaf from the oven after 40 minutes.
  10. Drain off some of the liquid that has accumulated. You can save it to use as a gravy if you wish.
  11. Spread topping over the meatloaf. Bake for an additional 20 minutes or until done.
  12. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.

We enjoyed this, but the topping was a little much for us - I'd love to make this again and top with a turkey/brown gravy! Thank you for the easy recipe! I would like to say that I didn't have the full amount of turkey and replaced 1/4lb of it with some extra oatmeal and it worked out beautifully. :) Thanks

This makes a tasty and easy to slice meatloaf. I did use 1 whole egg and reduced the brown sugar to 2 tablespoons.

Wish I would've sen the reviews first to add more oatmeal to my 1lb of ground turkey---but it still turned out pretty good. I also added a little (teaspoon or 2) of soy sauce and asian mustard to the topping...made for a little asian flare. Overall I will definitely try this recipe again!
