Parmesan Turkey Meatloaf

I made this yummy turkey meatloaf with an Italian twist last week. Tomato sauce and parmesan cheese cover this meatloaf and bring meatloaf to a new level. I made mine completely with ground turkey but it was still moist. It was even tasty as leftovers straight from the fridge.

Modified from Mommy? I'm Hungry!
2 pounds ground turkey
2 eggs
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 small onion, grated
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup marinara pasta sauce

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, eggs, breadcrumbs, spices, and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. 
Place the mixture in the greased loaf pan and form into a loaf. Top the meatloaf with pasta sauce. Bake for 45 minutes and remove the meatloaf from the oven. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese on the top and bake another ten minutes. 
Remove the meatloaf fro the oven and allow to rest for ten minutes before serving.


  1. I'm not a meatloaf girl, but this looks really good!

    Do you think it could be made with beef or pork?

    1. Hey Carrie! Yes it could definitely be made with either one!

  2. Oooh yummy!! I love that you made meatloaf healthier...looks just as good as the beef version my mom used to make!
