Turkey Meat Loaf

Meatloaf is a classic comfort food. I always make mine with mashed potatoes. My hubby has decided he likes meatloaf for breakfast, too. I heat it up in a nonstick skillet and he likes two fried eggs on top of it. As a special treat I will also make him potato cakes out of the leftover mashed potatoes. I'm telling you there is no stopping the man from the meatloaf. He will not rest until he has made "all gone." My favorite brand ground turkey is Shady Brook Farms.

Turkey Meat Loaf
  • 1 ½ lbs. ground turkey (93% lean)
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 small chopped onion, diced fine
  • ½ (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1 egg or ¼ cup egg beaters
  • 1 ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper

  • ½ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. mustard powder
  • ½ (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. vinegar

Mix turkey, bread crumbs, onion, ½ can sauce, egg, salt and pepper. Shape into a loaf, place mix into a 10 x 13 inch Pyrex dish. In a small sauce pan, mix rest of sauce, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar and water. Heat and stir until mustard and sugar are mixed. Pour over meat and bake at 350° for 1 to 1 ½ hours. I always serve this with mashed potatoes and peas or green beans.

Leftovers make a great sandwich. You may eat it cold or slice and cook in nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking oil. Heat one side then flip over melt a slice of cheese on top. Serve on toasted bread with lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise. Yummy!


  1. I baked this yesterday for supper. It was good. The sauce burnt around the edges of the dish.

    1. Yes it does burn a thin line on the outer edge but it still is delicious.
