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 typically a big side salad with ranch and canned green beans. It was pure comfort food and we all loved it. The best part is, there was often times just enough leftovers the next day to have meatloaf sandwiches. If you haven’t had a meatloaf sandwich with mayo and ketchup you haven’t really lived! Just kidding, though, it’s pretty darn tasty!

This Ground Turkey Meatloaf with Brown Sugar Glaze is wholesome, hearty and so delicious. I love that it has lots of veggies, which keeps it moist and tender, yet still plenty of meatiness for the meat lover at the table. The brown sugar glaze is really the icing on the cake as it gets nice and thick and sticky after it cooks. It’s so good, you may even want to make an extra batch on the side for dipping.

Ingredients
  

Meatloaf

  • 1 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach
  • 3/4 cup quick oats or use bread crumbs of choice
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp dried mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • non-stick cooking spray

Brown Sugar Glaze

  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

Instructions
 

Preheat oven to 350°F

  • In a large mixing bowl add all meatloaf ingredients and combine well. Transfer to a loaf pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and spread out evenly. Bake for 30 minutes in preheated oven.
  • Meanwhile, combine glaze ingredients in a small bowl.
  • When meatloaf is finished cooking the first 30 minutes, spread the glaze over the top of the loaf. Put it back in the oven for another 30-40 minutes until the sauce is thick and sticky and the meatloaf is cooked all the way through, or temperature on the inside reaches 165°F.
  • Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.

Notes

Veggie Substitutes– You can leave out any of the veggies you don’t like or swap the ones in the recipe for others like mushrooms, red or yellow bell peppers, or shredded zucchini. Keep in mind that mushrooms and zucchini have a higher water content so you may want to sauté them first to remove some of the moisture depending on how much you use. 
Oat Substitutes– Any kind of fine bread crumbs can be swapped out for the oats. If you’re watching your carbs, almond flour or ground up pork rinds are a great substitute.

    This was dinner tonight with a side of mashed potatoes and green beans. It was so flavorful and I absolutely loved the veggies. I had to slightly modify because I didn’t have quick oats so I used some leftover plain bread cubes for stuffing that I crushed up a bit and I only had 1 pound of turkey so added 4 hot Italian sausage links I had left over (casings removed) I also didn’t have green bell peppers so I just used a bit extra of all the other veggies. We all loved it. The sauce is a must!!!
