Traditional Turkey Meatloaf


I have been making this turkey meatloaf for years.  The recipe was actually from the Jennie-O package the ground turkey came in.  Sometimes it does pay to read those recipes printed on the labels of your foods!  This meatloaf never fails and it’s moist and delicious.

Serves: 5
  • 2 Tablespoons butter

  • ¾ cup catsup
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium high heat.
  3. Add the onion and garlic and cook approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Add the turkey, bread crumbs, egg, ¼ cup catsup, Worcestershire, salt and pepper to the onion mixture.
  6. Mix well with your hands.
  7. Pack the mixture into an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
  8. Spread the remaining ½ cup catsup over the top of the meatloaf.
  9. **Note - I often spread balsamic vinegar over the top of the meatloaf with the back of a spoon. It's awesome. (See photo above).
  10. Bake for 55 minutes until internal temperature reaches 170 degrees.
  11. Let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before cutting.
