Parmesan Turkey Meatloaf

I’m always looking for low maintenance & fast dinners – ones where there is not a lot of chopping or multiple steps.  This was originally my turkey meatball recipe but I didn’t want to spend the time rolling balls so opted for a meatloaf instead.  Top this with ketchup, marinara, or bbq sauce.   Make it gluten free by using gf panko or pulverized oatmeal.  Wanna keep it dairy free?  Use 8 oz diced mushrooms instead of Parmesan.

  • 2 lb ground turkey
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2/3 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 black pepper
  • 2/3 cup ketchup – for basting & dippin’


  • Preheat oven to 375F and line a sheet pan with aluminum foil.
  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Form a loaf on the baking sheet.  It’s gonna be sticky – try to make a smooth surface and sides.  Try not to taper the ends, make it more rectangular box like to cook more even.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.  Slather with ketchup and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165F and turkey is done.  Serve with Mashed Carrots. Happy Eating!  Beckie


  • Make little mini meatloafs instead of one large one.  They are so cute in individual serving sizes and will cook faster.  Check them after 35-40 minutes to see if they are done.
  • Gluten free?  Pulverize instant oats in the food processor – Affordable workhorse food processor for grating, slicing, & chopping.
