Easy Turkey Meatloaf

This Easy Turkey Meatloaf is so simple and comes together in a matter of minutes. It's healthy, easy, delicious, and full of flavor. You are going to love this twist on meatloaf.

Last year for my New Years resolution I made the goal to make the switch from ground beef to ground turkey. It was actually super easy, and surprisingly delicious.

Not to mention, it is a lot less fattening for you than ground beef. I actually got the idea from the show “The Biggest Loser” and gave it a try. We are officially hooked.

It was so delicious, and you couldn’t even tell a difference in taste. It was full of flavor and incredibly easy to make. If you have never replaced your ground beef recipes, for ground turkey, we highly recommend giving it a try. You will not be disappointed.

how to make the perfect turkey meatloaf:

  • Step one: In a bowl, combine ground turkey, eggs, onion, oatmeal, ketchup, salt and pepper, 1/2 can of soup, and 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Sometimes this step is best done with your hands to ensure it is fully combined (warning, it may get a little cold with that meat).

My favorite oats to use are Quaker Oats. They are so crisp and turn out perfectly every time, with this meatloaf.

  • Step two: Spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray to ensure the meatloaf comes out with ease. If you don’t, it will get a little tricky to cut out of the pan. press in your meatloaf (I also did this with my hands, to ensure it was all pressed down).

  • Step three: In a separate, smaller bowl, mix your sauce. Your sauce will consist of: brown sugar, 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, and a 1/2 can tomato soup. You will then pour this combined mixture and  over top of loaf.

  • Step four: Place the meatloaf in the oven and bake for 90 minutes or until it is fully cooked and the inside isn’t pink. It should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

can i make this recipe ahead of time?

This recipe is simple, and prepares quickly. You can most definitely prepare it, and cook it later. We recommend cooking it within two days of making it, because the oats will expand and get a little soggy.

You won’t be able to tell as much when you cook it, but cooking it within two days of making it is recommended.

what could i replace the tomato soup with?

This recipe calls for tomato soup, however, you could easily switch this out for tomato paste or tomato sauce. Even a thin marinara sauce (without chunks) would work just great.

We recommend adding another Tablespoon of sugar, to make it a little more sweet, like tomato soup. You may also need to add just a little splash of water to thin it out a little better.

    • Hi Susie. We have not tried steel cut oats in this recipe. You can substitute steel oats for rolled oats in a lot of recipes. Follow the directions on your package. Some steel cut oats need to soak first to absorb liquid. Let us know how it all turns out.

    I made this again last night & have probably made it close to a dozen times since found this recipe. It's a real winner with my husband. This time he said,"This is so good. Just, so good. You know, it breaks my heart that the rest of the world hasn't gotten to experience the wonder of this meatloaf." Lol... I told him I got the recipe from a blog, so at least some other people have experienced it, though maybe not the whole world just yet. Anyway, I love this recipe. It's easy & delicious!
  2. I'm making this tonight!! I omitted the sugar, and I added some veggies too (chopped kale, and bell pepper, and I used a regular white onion because I didn't have green) Well see how it turns out!! I have 3 little ones, so if they approve, you know it's good!! ...and the verdict is.... IT WAS GOOD!!!! I probably should have used some extra oatmeal since it was pretty moist and fell apart easily because of the added veggies. But despite its imperfect meatloaf form once transferred to the plate, it was a winner and all 3 kids, even the toddler cleared their plates!!
  3. Thanks for this recipe. I had some ground turkey in my fridge, and I didn't really have a good recipe to use. Then I found this recipe! I used this recipe as inspiration: added in some veggies (that needed to be used up), substituted some ketchup and marinara for the tomato soup, and used brown sugar. The meatloaf turned out great! In fact, making it a second time this week. Next I am trying out your recipe for the lasagna-stuffed peppers!
    • Place the meatloaf in the oven and bake for 90 minutes or until it is fully cooked and the inside isn’t pink. It should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. You could check it after one hour and see if it needs additional cooking time, or if it's done.
    • Hi Summer. I'm thinking you might be better off trying to come up with a recipe using the ingredients you have on hand. If you substitute too many ingredients for this meatloaf, it is no longer meatloaf. We love to do Shelf/Pantry cooking and try to create recipes with what we have on hand. It's becoming more popular with many during quarantine.
