Easy Basic Turkey Meatloaf

I haven’t cooked much in the past few months, that’s for sure. So when I felt ready to dive back in, I wanted something easy that I knew would get approval from both the hubs and the boy. I had some ground turkey that my husband picked up a few days ago and it was just waiting for me to portion it out for the freezer. ┬áInstead, I took 2 lbs of it and made this super easy turkey meatloaf.

I’m so glad I did. It turned out surprisingly delicious! ┬áI say “surprisingly” because it’s just so easy, with no frills whatsoever. I made it exactly as called for in the original recipe except that next time I’d add half the amount of onion. It was a bit too much for us.

I highly suggest you go visit Sweet Treats and More for some more awesome recipes. I’m really glad I discovered her.

Easy Basic Turkey Meatloaf


  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1-1/4 cup dried bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp prepared mustard
  • 1/3 cup ketchup


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl combine the turkey, egg, onion, milk, bread crumbs, and salt and pepper (it's easiest to use your hands to combine it).
  3. Using your hands form the meat mixture into a loaf and place in a lightly greased 9x13 in baking dish. Sprinkle top with another dash of salt and pepper.
  4. In a separate bowl combine brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. Pour over the top of the meatloaf, spreading evenly. Bake for about one hour or until cooked through.

    This post reminds me that it’s been some time since I’ve made a turkey meatloaf! I need to get one on my menu soon. I don’t do any sweet elements to mine, as husband doesn’t care for sweet in his meat. I know, crazy! lol Hope you are doing well.
