Thursday Taste: Turkey Meatloaf


I have to thank my sister for introducing me to this next recipe.  Up until she made it for me on a recent trip to visit her, I had always had a negative impression of Meatloaf or associated it with Will Ferrell in the movie The Wedding Crasher (“MAA MORE MEATLOAF”).  But I have to admit I had been wrong, Meatloaf can be pretty tasty!

This recipe is courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis with the exception of a couple ingredient changes.

I still haven’t gotten my husband on the bandwagon, so I like to make this recipe and store in the fridge for my lunch.  Relatively simple to make and much better than what I probably would be eating otherwise.



  • ½ cup plain dried bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley leaves
  • 1/3 cup chopped marinated sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 large organic eggs
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp Mrs Dash Salt-Free Seasoning
  • 1 lb ground turkey



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a large bowl, combine and stir bread crumbs, parsley, tomatoes, garlic, eggs, olive oil, feta and Mrs Dash
  • Slowly add in the ground turkey
  • Once all ingredients have been thoroughly mixed together, carefully pack the mixture into a 9×5 nonstick loaf pan (sprayed with cooking spray)
  • Mixture should fill the pan about halfway
  • Bake until the internal temp reaches 165 degrees – roughly 40 – 45 minutes
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let cool for about 5 minutes
  • Slice and ENJOY!
