I grew up eating meatloaf and my mom would usually make two at a time to feed our family. She served it with mashed or baked potatoes and usually a big green salad with ranch. It was total comfort food and we all loved it. The best part was there was usually leftovers for meatloaf sandwiches. If you haven’t had a meatloaf sandwich with mayo and ketchup you haven’t really lived! Just kidding, though, it’s so good!
This Ground Turkey Meatloaf with Brown Sugar Glaze is healthy and delicious. I love that it has lots of veggies (which keeps it moist and tender) and still has plenty of meatiness. And the brown sugar glaze! This stuff is like candy. In a good savory kind-of-way. It gets thick and sticky after it cooks and becomes the perfect sauce for the meatloaf.
Ingredients For Ground Turkey Meatloaf with Brown Sugar Glaze:
- Ground Turkey
- Green bell pepper
- Fresh spinach
- Quick oats
- Worcestershire sauce
- Seasonings- garlic powder, Italian seasoning, dried mustard, salt & pepper
- Non-stick cooking spray
Brown sugar glaze:
- Worcestershire sauce
- Brown sugar
If you prefer beef over turkey, use lean ground beef instead. Use other veggies like, shredded zucchini (squeeze out excess moisture) finely chopped mushrooms (preferably sautéed) and any color bell pepper. If you don’t have quick oats, substitute with bread or panko crumbs.
How To Prepare Meatloaf:
Step 1. Preheat oven to 350℉
Step 2. In a large bowl add all the meatloaf ingredients and combine well.
Step 3. Transfer mixture to a 2 qt loaf pan sprayed well with non-stick cooking spray and spread out to form an even layer. Bake for 30-minutes in preheated oven.
Step 4. Meanwhile, combine glaze ingredients in a small bowl.
Step 5. After the 30-minute cooking time, pour glaze over the meatloaf. Bake another 30-40 minutes until the sauce is thick and the meatloaf is cooked through all the way. The temperature on the inside should reach 165 degrees using an instant read thermometer. Let meatloaf rest 10-minutes before slicing.
