Not your Mom's Meatloaf

Derrick and I've been making this Turkey Meatloaf for a really long time. We will often make it for dinner one night and eat on it for at least a couple of lunches.

We typically bake this--but when Derrick bought a Traeger, he decided to smoke it and OMG. It's next level. So, if you have a partner that loves to grill and smoke meats, delegate!!

I like to pair this up with some roasted veggies: green beans, squash, carrots, potatoes and a green leafy salad.


  • 2 lbs. raw 93% lean ground turkey

  • 1 cup all-natural mild salsa

  • 1 green pepper, finely diced

  • 1 red pepper, finely diced

  • 1 large zucchini, finely diced

  • 1 cup whole-wheat bread crumbs

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)

  • Ground black pepper (to taste; optional)

  • Fresh chopped parsley (for garnish; optional)

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.

  2. Combine turkey, salsa, veggies, bread crumbs, eggs, garlic, salt, and pepper in large bowl and mix well.

  3. Shape mixture into shape of a loaf and place on ungreased 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

  4. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, or until center is no longer pink and meat is cooked through.

  5. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

  6. Split into 6 servings.
