Turkey Meatloaf

I had a craving for meatloaf.   I don't make meatloaf often 
but when I do, I make one that I call 
Magnolia Meatloaf. 
Made using ground veal and served grilled. 

This this time I decided to make a Turkey Meatloaf
made with ground turkey breast.

Shaped and ready for the oven.

Baked until golden brown.


Served with mashed potatoes and broccoli.
Gravy made from pan drippings.

Turkey Breast Meatloaf

You don't really need a recipe for meatloaf. This is my basic

1-1/2 pounds ground turkey breast
1 to 2 tablespoons butter
small white onion chopped
1 stalk of celery finely chopped
1/2 to 1 cup chicken broth
1 clove of garlic
salt and pepper
2 to 3 slices Bread
fresh parsley
sage, thyme, rosemary (to personal taste)
2 eggs

Melt butter in skillet and sauté onions and celery.  Add garlic
and some chicken broth and simmer until vegetables are tender.
Add the salt, pepper, sage, thyme and rosemary.

Break the  bread up in the processor.  Added the parsley, the
onion/ celery mixture and processed for a few seconds, just long
enough to combine.

Mix the bread mixture into the ground turkey along with two beaten

Fry a little piece of the mixture to test for seasoning.

Shape the meatloaf in a buttered roasting pan (I used a cast iron
skillet) and roast at 375°F for 45 minutes to an hour.
Baste  with pan juices once or twice.

  1. We've never made turkey meatloaf but yours makes me want to try it. I had a look at Magnolia's meatloaf and it looks very good and I especially like the idea of grilling it.
