Ground turkey meatloaf

Ok, I know this might not sound all that appetizing but I PROMISE it is so good! I was honestly shocked that it ended up turning out so well. I was afraid the turkey would cause it to be dry and tasteless, but it was actually quite the opposite! It turned out moist, tasted great, and I modified the original recipe to suit those of us who count macros!
I used 98% lean ground turkey and it was very moist so don’t be afraid to use the leanest turkey you can find! Also, I want to add that I used the sugar free ketchup (which I absolutely do not like on it’s own) to the actual meatloaf to save on calories. It seemed to have no affect on the taste of this meal. I did switch back to regular ketchup for the sauce only because it is a small amount and I didn’t want the sauce to taste weird. I made this meal exactly like I posted below so if you make any substitutions I can’t vouch for what it will taste like. πŸ™‚

Ingredients:

1lb 98% lean ground turkey
1/4 sugar free ketchup
2 tbsp of regular ketchup (for sauce)
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 egg
1/2 of a small onion
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp olive oil
Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Saute olive oil and onion until onion is soft
  3. In a medium bowl mix turkey, onion, breadcrumbs, egg, 1/4 of sugar free ketchup, Italian seasoning, and salt
  4. Grease a loaf pan with a non stick spray
  5. Place meat mixture in loaf pan and shape it like a loaf
  6. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes
  7. While meat is baking, mix in a small bowl the 2 tbsp of ketchup and the Worcestershire sauce. I also added a pinch of brown sugar however you don’t have to!
  8. When the meat has reached 30 minutes, remove from oven and spread sauce on top
  9. Place back in the oven for another 30 minutes
  10. Wait 5 minutes before slicing
Serves 4. Macros per serving are approximately 30P 9C 6F. These are subject to change depending on ingredients used and the brand.

I apologize that I didn’t get a picture of the final product! You will have to use your imagination πŸ™‚ If you try it feel free to let me know your thoughts!
