Here is an easy and healthy meatloaf recipe.  My husband doesn’t like meatloaf, but he liked this recipe.


  • 1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 package ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning (you can also do fresh thyme, oregano, and/or Italian parsley)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 to 1 cups spicy BBQ sauce (see my recipe below)
  • 1 egg white
  • Other finely chopped veggies optional


Cook onions in a frying pan with a approximately 2 tablespoons of olive oil until the onions are traslucent.  Let cool and then mix with the rest of the ingredients until everything is evenly mixed together.

You can use a loaf pan, or a larger pan and just mold the turkey mixture into a rectangular shape.  Make sure you spray the pan with cooking spray beforehand.  Top the uncooked meatloaf with more BBQ sauce and cook at 375 for 30-38 minutes.

Combine ingredients into a large pot.  Bring to a boil then simmer for 50-60 minutes.  Let sit, and then put in glass containers to store in the refrigerator.

I made this recipe and gave as Christmas gifts this year.  I put them in cute jars with custom labels.  Everyone whose tried it so far really likes it.
