A juicy homestyle meatloaf made with lean ground turkey A juicy homestyle meatloaf made with lean ground turkey
Number of Servings: 4


    16 oz ground turkey, 93% lean
    1 cup red peppers, chopped
    1/2 medium-sized onion
    1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
    2 tsp worcestershire sauce
    1 tsp paprika
    1 tsp pepper, red or cayenne
    1 tbsp garlic powder
    1 tbsp onion powder
    Dash of salt
    1 tbsp low carb, reduced sugar tomato ketchup (optional)
    1 large egg
    1 tsp black pepper


You will need a large bowl to mix your ingredients in and a small loaf pan to cook it in. I use the disposable aluminum pans for easy portion control and a quick clean up afterwards.
Strat by placing the ground turkey, onions and peppers in the bowl.
I add my spices which include paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, a dash of salt and ground black pepper.
Add the worcestershire sauce and one egg and work the spices through the meat mixture with your hands or a large spoon or fork. Add your grated parmesan cheese. This adds flavor and removes the excess moisture from your meat. The amount of parmesan you add depends on how moist or dry your meat mixture looks and feels. You should be able to form a patty or loaf without the mixture coming apart. If the the mixture is still too wet add more grated parmesan.
Then add the meat to the loaf pan and pat down into a loaf. Place your loaf pan on a baking sheet and place in a 350 degree oven for approximately 35-45 minutes.
You will able to tell the meatloaf is done by the color and you will see the clear juices bubbling around the edges of the meatloaf.
During the last 5 minutes of cooking you can glaze the top of your meatloaf with the ketchup if desired.

    I haven't tried this particular recipe, but I use a similar one (originally from Shape Magazine a couple of years ago). If you're looking to add more veggies to your (or your kids') diet, try adding some grated carrot. Once you cook the meatloaf, you don't even notice it's in there. - 6/11/08

    I really like this, but cut back a bit on the red pepper. And instead of making one meatloaf, we divide the mix into muffin tins to make individual meatloaves. - 9/6/07

    This is very easy to make and is delicious and spicy! I would suggest cutting down on the cayenne pepper if you don't like the heat! But I loved the heat! Thanks for sharing! - 4/26/09

    This was really yummy! I only used 1/2 a red pepper, and left out the cayenne pepper completely. Also, I added some worshishire sauce and creole seasoning to the top just before I slid it in the oven - 6/25/08
