Turkey Meatloaf

This Turkey Meatloaf is total comfort food but I am trying to eat healthier and watch those calories without giving up my favorite comfort food. 
But....not to worry:)

This recipe is about 160 calories a serving and only 2.1 grams of fat, so enjoy!

It shows you can feed your family great family classics that are healthier.

By the way, this recipe is tastier than my basic beef meatloaf, and even if I wasn't watching those bad little calories, I would choose this one:))

Turkey Meatloaf

  • 1.25 lbs of Extra Lean Ground White Turkey
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • olive oil
  • 4 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup of salsa
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats, uncooked
  • Knorr Vegetable Soup Mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Saute the onion in just a dab of olive oil until caramelized, let cool to room temperature
3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey, caramelized onion, salsa, egg whites, oats, soup mix and black pepper
4. Place in a 9 x 5 loaf pan or 3 small 1 lb loaf pans
5. Spread the ketchup evenly on top
6. Place in preheated oven and bake for about 60 minutes until juices run clear and the meatloaf is not longer pink in the center.

*Knorr Vegetable Soup mix contains dried onions, carrots, tomato flakes, celery root flakes, leek, cabbage flakes, peas, tomato and broccoli powder!   A great way to add flavor and veggies.


  1. Will put this on my "to make" pile (so ever high) as it looks so good Evelyn. I am itching to make your Zucchini Lasagna. Looks like we might get a reprieve today with a bit of warmth before a week of rain ahead here on the Bruce Peninsula. Enjoty your day.

  9. Your meatloaf does look yummy! My husband is another one who "isn't very agreeable about eating poultry" - I love the way Diane worded it. I asked him why the other day and he explained - "It just doesn't taste enough like beef". Just stopping by from the GRAND Social Linky Party. Thanks for the recipe!

  37. Meatloaf is one of my most favorite things to eat. I have never used ground turkey before, it just might be time to end that! This looks so good.

  38. Is sodium content high in the Knorr seasoning?

    1. It's not bad, 1/4 of the entire package is about 670 mg of sodium which is less than 1/3 of my daily required amount. (It's always best to check with your doctor concerning your daily requirements)


Thank you so much for your sweet comments:)))
