The Best Turkey Meatloaf

Meatloaf is definitely on my list of comfort foods and turkey meatloaf is no exception.

For the longest time, I thought turkey meatloaf would be bland.  I was wrong. Give this turkey meatloaf recipe a try and I think you'll agree with me.

My criteria for a perfect meatloaf recipe are:
#1 The meatloaf must be easy to make.  This recipe is very easy to assemble.
#2 The meatloaf must be moist and tender.  This recipe delivers.
#3 The meatloaf must be good in a sandwich the next day. Yes, this recipe makes a yummy sandwich.

In my mind, the keys to this meatloaf recipe's yumminess are the chopped onion, red pepper, and seasoned stuffing mix. There are other flavor enhancers, too, but the onion, pepper, and stuffing mix take the meatloaf over the top for flavor. I like to use Pepperidge Farm seasoned stuffing mix in a bag.

Serves 4

    Quick and Easy Turkey Meatloaf
  • 1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup seasoned stuffing mix
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper


Heat the oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Saute the onion and red pepper together until soft.  Add the minced garlic and cook for one minute.  Set the mixture aside to cool.

Heat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Place the ground turkey in a medium bowl. Add the cooled onion and pepper mixture and all the other ingredients to the bowl.

Using your clean hands, squeeze the ingredients together through your fingers until combined.  Don't overdo it, or the meatloaf will be too dense.

Place the mixture in a loaf pan.  Cook for approximately one hour, until the top of the meatloaf is nicely browned.  I like to cook my meatloaf until the internal temperature is 175-180 degrees F.

Let the meatloaf rest for about ten minutes before slicing.
