Turkey replaces beef in this meat loaf recipe, making it a healthier version of the traditional comfort food. The result is moist, flavorful, and a hit with our reviewers.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, mushrooms, and garlic to pan; cook 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes.

Step 3

Combine mushroom mixture, panko, and next 8 ingredients (through egg) in a large bowl; stir well to combine. Shape turkey mixture into a 9 x 5–inch rectangle on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray.

Step 4

Combine ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and nutmeg in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Spread ketchup mixture evenly over top of meat loaf; bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160°. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

This was fantastic! The sriracha in the meatloaf gave it a lovely zing without being overwhelming. I made two versions of the ketchup top; one as written, one with sriracha, (the recipe version on the meatloaf, as my husband isn't fond of sriracha). I think I'll stick with the one as written from now on, even for myself, since though I adore the spice, I think it's *too* much sriracha for this recipe and it loses the appeal of it's subtlety. I served this with homemade mashed potatoes and fresh steamed asparagus. This will definitely go into my rotation as a regular feature. ***EDIT*** I have stopped using sriracha and subbed chili sauce instead. It still has the spice the turkey needs without that distinctive sriracha zing that my hubby doesn't like. I've also upped the veggie content in this by adding julienned carrots, cut small. Delicious! Still a favorite in our house!

Best. Meatloaf. Ever.

This is now the only turkey meatloaf recipe we make. The sautéed onions & mushrooms add a great layer of flavor and texture. And the Ketchup, Brown Sugar & Sriracha topping takes it to the next level with a nice sweet & spicy kick! Just made a double batch this weekend. We love it!

Very good! Very moist! I added 2 cups chopped spinach at the end of step 2. Delish. Did not add sriarach, not a fan of spice, but lots of flavor. Made plenty to freeze and enjoy another time.

Very nice, moist meatloaf. But not very spicy. I used 1 tablespoon Sriracha but will increase when I make this again as I could hardly taste it.

Best turkey meatloaf recipe I've ever made! I have tried several and all were either dry and or flavorless. This was moist and delicious. I even forgot to make the sauce that goes on too and I'm glad because it did not need it.

Enjoyed this meatloaf. It was very moist and had great flavor. Not just a brick of meat.

I'm not the biggest meatloaf fan, I just think a loaf of meat sounds odd! This however was really yummy!!! It had a different yet traditional taste and was a hit with everyone in the house!!! I did use two pounds of turkey to make it more hearty and to have enough to feed the dreaded step kids!

I've been making this for years and it's a family favorite. We are gluten free, so I omit the breadcrumbs...still turns out great!
