Turkey Meatloaf Tuesday

September 29, 2015

My husband loves meatloaf.  Like really loves it. But since I began the Plant Based Diet Revolution at Canterbury Cottage, he has been suffering from meatloaf withdrawal. Big time.

Personally, I do not eat meat.  But I realize that my ever-faithful, super-patient-with-all-my-new-recipes husband likes to have it on occasion. Yet, I refuse to buy hamburger, because of the saturated fat. So what’s the alternative you ask?  GROUND TURKEY.  The great thing about ground turkey is that organic ground turkey is only pennies more per pound than regular ground turkey, so we all can afford to eat the good stuff. Ground turkey contains less than half the saturated fat of 80/20 hamburger.  And you know that saturated fat builds up in your arteries over the years.  So switch that ground hamburger to ground turkey  and give yourself a few more years.

Turkey Meatloaf Tuesday

1 1/2 to 2 lbs. Organic Ground Turkey
one cup Panko bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
one cup finely chopped onion
3 green onions, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
(for a different taste, we use Tamari)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cilantro (or parsley)
1/2 tsp pepper

Mix together turkey, Panko, bread crumbs, eggs, onion, green onion, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, cilantro and pepper. Form into one large meatloaf patty, or two smaller patties, Place on a Silpat or a roast pan lined with aluminum foil.


{I still decorate the individual loaves for fun}

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30-40 minutes, until golden and crispy on top.

Serve with Crispy Brussels Sprouts a la San Diego,

    Hi Gay,
    I have used turkey for hamburger in my meatloaf too. I think it has a better texture to it and better flavor.
    Thanks for sharing your recipe with us.
