A moist and tangy meatloaf complemented with the perfect glaze is today’s dish. It’s made with sautéed zuccuni, carrots, mushrooms, and onions as well as traditional bread crumbs. Whether you are trying to add more vegetables to your diet or trying to stretch your ground turkey, this dish accomplishes both with great taste. Serve it with mashed potatoes and a salad.
I’m using low-fat ground turkey (93% fat free) but the veggies not only add flavor but make a moist loaf. A great thing about the recipe is you can use it for meatballs with veggies too.
- 1 lb lean ground turkey (93 %)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion diced
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2 medium carrots shredded
- 1 zucchini shredded
- 8 oz button mushrooms chopped
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 large egg beaten
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
- 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh thyme chopped
- 1 pinch Italian seasoning
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 2 tbsp honey or brown sugar
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar or balsamic vinegar
- Heat oil in pan over medium heat
- Sauté onion until soft and translucent
- Add garlic and stir well for a minute
- Add carrots, zucchini, and mushrooms
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Continue to sauté until all moisture is released and evaporated
- Transfer veggies to bowl to cool for 5 to 8 minutes
- Preheat oven to 375 F
- Add the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, egg, and breadcrumbs
- Mix well
- Add turkey and use your hands to mix well and make loaf
- Place in pan or baking dish sprayed with non-stick oil
- Bake meatloaf until no longer pink inside and the juices run clear, 40 to 45 minutes
- While the loaves are baking, mix the tomato glaze
- Combine ketchup, honey or sugar, and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl and stir until smooth
- After 40 minutes remove loaf from oven
- Coat with glaze, and bake until glaze has cooked onto the loaf, 5 to 10 more minutes

…you use turkey often!
That’s funny as I was reading I thought, “It’s the sauteed veggies that keep it from getting dry.” A great recipe which I’ll be trying soon I’m sure.
Looks good. Ah, we go with the meat we can get. I hope to have meatloaf again soon!
This looks good. A different take on the original meatloaf using beef. TFS
Carol. Here in the UK we barely eat Turkey at other than Christmas. I might struggle to find the ingredients for this. But it does look and sound very tasty.
You can make it with whatever ground or chopped meat you can get. I was trying to go for low fat but still tastes good.
OMG!!! I LOVE meatloaf and your recipe looks positively delish! Stay healthy!
Looks delicious! I am a fan of turkey to replace beef. Thanks for sharing.
I must be wanting a sweet cause I thought it was dessert at first glance. Looking good!
This looks and sound delicious. I do love meatloaf but haven’t tried a veggie one. One a great idea x
I bet the extra veggies makes this extra delicious! I’ll make this when turkey prices go down. I wanted to buy some recently and the store was price gouging. Pinned.
I made something similar to this one day following a recipe from Weight Watchers and I really liked it; though I like the combination of vegetables you used better. Pinned.
I hope you like it.
This looks delicious. Pinning so I can try it soon!
thanks for the pin Donna – hope you’re having a great Wednesday!
Looks pretty yummy Carol. I make turkey meatloaf all the time. My husband prefers turkey to beef. Thanks for sharing at Love Your Creativity.
