Turkey Meatloaf

20140206-060139.jpgMeatloaf. You probably sigh when you hear that word. People have mixed emotions about the dish. Some love, some hate. This is a healthier twist on a classic recipe that was a staple when we were growing up. I assure you, this meatloaf will be put on the “love” list. It is simple as throwing and mixing all the ingredients in a bowl and popping it in the oven. So, it is great for a night when you attention needs to be somewhere else while dinner cooks. It is great for leftovers too!

1 lbs ground turkey
1 egg, whisked
2 tbsp coconut aminos
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup green pepper
2 tbsp basil
1 tsp marjoram
8 oz tomato sauce
1 cup almond flour
2 green onions (white & green parts)

1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2.Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
3.Pour the mixture into a loaf pan and evenly distribute.
4.Bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour. (It should be a golden- reddish brown on top. A little crispy on the edges. If the meat was frozen, it will take a bit longer.)
*In the photo above, mini meatloaves were made, which is a great alternative. It takes about half the cooking time*

  1. I had never heard about coconut aminos… A soy sauce substitute. I will have to make a stop to the health food store, as it is unlikely Kroger carries this item 🙂


    • A lot of stores have actually started carrying it. It is also called liquid aminos. It’s a gluten free alternative for soy sauce.


      • Ah yes, I actually have that in my fridge I think :). By the same company that makes the apple cider vinegar. Braggs, maybe ???
