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.
