Trust me—this recipe will turn even the biggest meatloaf haters into meatloaf lovers! The trick to really good ground turkey meatloaf is packing it full of ingredients that help give it flavor and keep the meatloaf moist, like shredded carrots, onion and chopped fresh spinach. It’s also all about the homemade glaze, which takes just 5 minutes to whip up.


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (or almond flour)
  • 1 cup shredded onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrots, about 1 large carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add all the ingredients into a large bowl (minus the ingredients for the glaze). Using a fork or clean hands, mix until everything is fully incorporated.
  2. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and pour meat onto pan. Use your hands to form into a loaf shape, trying to keep it level so it cooks evenly.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove and brush glaze all over. Place back in the oven for another 30 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with chopped parsley to garnish.
