Lower the fat content of your meatloaf by substituting ground turkey for ground beef. Since breadcrumbs are a huge calorie culprit, we use dry oats instead. Plus, the oats are packed with fiber, leaving you feeling fuller longer. 

Turkey Meatloaf Recipe


  • 1 1/2 packages (30 ounces) lean ground turkey, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup dry oats
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup cashews, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons basil
  • 1/4 teaspoons pepper
  • Ketchup, to taste
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Meanwhile, mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl, except for ketchup and oil spray.
  3. Thoroughly wash your hands and coat them with cooking spray.
  4. Using clean oil-coated hands, roll the turkey mixture into a log and pace it into an 8 x 4 loaf pan. Squirt some ketchup on the top and use a knife to spread evenly.
  5. Place in oven and cook for 40 to 60 minutes. Serve.
