This meatloaf is not only lower in fat than your traditional ground beef meat loaf, it is moist and delicious! This recipe will feed about 5-6 people. If you like spicy, add in about 1 teaspoon or more of dried chili flakes when frying the veggies.

  9. Add in the turkey and Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper; mix with clean hands to combine well (the mixture will be very moist!).

  12. Bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 170F (basting again with about 3/4 cup chili sauce or ketchup or more if desired the last 20 minutes of cooking).
  13. Let meatloaf stand for about 10 minutes before slicing.

Another winner from Kittencal! Used 3/4 cups of panko because we were running short on bread and tomato sauce instead of catsup. Yum!

Oh my goodness! What a delicious and flavorful meatloaf! I didn't have 1 1/2 lbs of ground turkey, so I decided to go with 1/2 ground turkey and 1/2 90% lean ground chuck. Just delicious! We loved this and can't wait for sandwiches for lunch! The only other small change I made was to use oatmeal in place of breadcrumbs (only because I was out) I didn't have any problem with the loaf being too "loose" at all. And really I think this is a simple weeknight meal. I would maybe suggest to make it in the morning pop it in the fridge until you are ready to bake! Thanks Kitt! As ALWAYS another winner!!! edited to add-- for easy prep I put everything into my food processor - the only time it took was to do a little peeling and cutting!

This meatloaf was very tasty but almost too loose to form into a loaf in a 9x13 pan, also, many ingredients, not a 30 min. meal, save it for Sunday dinner.
