Turkey Meatloaf

Comfort food with a twist! Try our favorite home cooked meal just a little lighter with unbelievably moist turkey combined with sautéed baby bella mushrooms. It's gluten free of course and be sure to serve with mashed potatoes and something green!

I will keep this short and sweet, I love meatloaf. I know it's not everyone's favorite I mean what sounds appetizing about a literal loaf of meat but I think we can all agree it is the home cooked comfort food of America.

Everyone has their own tried and true recipe for meatloaf, possibly passed down from moms and grandmas alike or have their favorite version from the diner down the street. I think we can also agree it is by far not the healthiest on our list of dinner recipes.

This is not my moms recipe. This is my I-want-meatloaf-and-also-watching-my-waistline recipe but do not be fooled when I use the term "healthy" because this packs as much flavor as any meatloaf.


8 oz baby bella or white button mushrooms, very finely chopped

1 medium yellow onion, very finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

3 tbsp ketchup plus more for topping

1 cup gluten free quick oats

1/3 cup milk

2 large eggs, beaten

1 1/4 lb ground turkey


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with coconut oil.

2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant and then stir in the mushrooms, 1/2 tsp of salt, and 1/4 tsp ground black pepper. Cook until the mushrooms give off their liquid and it evaporates, about 10 minutes.

3. Transfer the onions and mushroom mixture to a large bowl and stir in the Worcestershire sauce and 3 tbsp of ketchup.

4. While the mushrooms are cooling, in a separate bowl mix together the oats, milk, and eggs.

5. Add the oat mixture to the mushrooms and then using a fork or your hands fold in the ground turkey. Add the remaining 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.

6. Pour the mixture onto the baking dish and form into an oval mound (a loaf). Spread some more ketchup on top of the loaf.

7. Bake the meatloaf in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes and let stand for about 5 minutes before slicing.

Be sure to serve with some mashed potatoes and something green to remind you of your mama's!
