Turkey Mini Meatloaves

These are very tasty little loaves! The oatmeal soaked in milk helps this meatloaf stay moist. The ketchup and Dijon mustard topping was awesome as you got a little bit of it with every bite. Next time I will add some minced garlic and a little dried thyme to boost the flavor even more. I have found that lean ground turkey needs a little more seasoning since it doesn’t contain as much fat. I’m looking forward to leftovers for lunch today! The side dishes shown are Broccolette with Garlic and Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes with the addition of rutabagas. Talk about a filling and flavorful meal!

Turkey Mini Meat loaves

  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk
  • 1 medium onion, peeled, finely chopped
  • 2 lbs ground turkey breast 93/7
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 cup ketchup, divided
  • 1 Tbs Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp powdered mustard
  • Freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

2. In a small bowl, stir together the oats and milk. In a large bowl combine the turkey, oat mixture, chopped onion, bell pepper, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup ketchup, salt, garlic powder, powdered mustard and a few grinds of pepper. Mix just until well combined.

3. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with non stick spray. Divide meat mixture into 8 equal mini meat loaves and place on prepared baking sheet. Combine the remaining 1/2 cup ketchup with Dijon mustard and spread evenly over tops of meat loaves. Place baking sheet on the middle rack of your oven for 25-30 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees.

4. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before removing from baking sheet.
