This recipe is truly not “yo’ mama’s meatloaf”! A bit lighter due to using turkey instead of beef, with a secret ingredient that never fails! Serve with sweet potato fries and green veggies of your choosing!
Ingredients
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1 packet “Beefy onion soup mix”
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup Italian style bread crumbs
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 deg.
  2. Add oil to a hot saute pan on medium-high heat. Saute mushrooms and onions until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in packet of onion soup mix, scraping off blackened parts from bottom of pan.
  3. In large bowl, mix together turkey, eggs, bread crumbs, ketchup, black olives, 1 tsp each salt and pepper, and mushrooms/onions. Combine all with spoon (or if you’re feeling really keen on getting down and dirty with your food… your hands!). Pour mixture into a regular size loaf pan. Drizzle additional ketchup or BBQ sauce on top if you so desire!
  4. Bake at 350 deg for 55-60 minutes.
  5. Drain excess drippings from pan and allow meatloaf to sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.
  6. *You can also freeze this for later! Just wrap tightly in tin foil and seal in a ziplock freezer-safe bag.
