This recipe came from a package of ground turkey. It is by far the best turkey meatloaf I have ever tasted.
- 2 tablespoons butter (or margarine)
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 1⁄4 lbs ground turkey
- 1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 egg (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)
- 3⁄4 cup catsup
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- Melt butter in a skillet.
- Cook onion and garlic in melted butter for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Place mixture in a large bowl to cool for 5 minutes.
- Combine turkey, bread crumbs, egg, 1/4 cup of the catsup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper with onion mixture.
- Press meatloaf into an 8x4-inch loaf pan.
- Spread remaining catsup on top.
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50-55 minutes.
- (Internal temperature should reach 165 degrees.) Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
This was great. I used whole wheat bread crumbs and used small (8oz) can of tomato sauce instead of all that ketchup which has a lot of sugar. It was fantastic!
My search for the perfect turkey meatloaf recipe is over (I have seriously tried more than 15 recipes). We loved this. Really Moist, actually bordering on TOO moist. My minor changes due to necessity: 1- used a mixture of white and red onion, because I was using up leftover raw onions from 2 other recipes. 2- used 85% lean turkey since I already had it, but would probably use the leaner variety the next time because this recipe was almost TOO moist. 3- used only 1 pound of turkey instead of 1.25 because that is how it is sold in our store. 4- used Panko breadcrumbs since they were ready and available. 5- I also found my meatloaf needed about 10 more minutes of cooking time to reach desired temperature.
Thank you! I liked this very much. After some experimentation, I discovered substituting cooked whole grain brown rice for the cracker crumbs improved the texture immeasurably and also added more food value. I also added 4 oz. mushrooms (canned, but fresh could also be used) and 1/2 of a green pepper (diced) to the onion mixture. I very much like the Barbeque sauce in lieu of catsup, as well.
