Garden Turkey Meatloaf

Ground turkey is a blank culinary canvas, you can flavor and cook with it to make a variety if healthy meal options. One of my favorite is this basic turkey meatloaf recipe with a bunch of optional seasonings to add your own flair.


16 ounces lean ground turkey (I used 99 percent fat free)
½ cup oats (*use gluten-free oats such as Bob's Red Mill if you are on a gluten-free diet)
1 cup finely chopped veggies of your choice (onion, mushrooms, zucchini, carrots, peppers)
½ cup tomato sauce
2 egg whites or 1 egg
Optional seasonings: garlic powder, oregano, paprika, chili powder, Cajun seasoning, salt, pepper (1 teaspoon or more of any of these)
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix the turkey, oats, egg, veggies and tomato sauce. Add the desired seasoning and put into a large loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 1 hour or until an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees.F.
