I wanted to create a meat loaf using ground turkey. I decided to try a boxed stuffing mix to bind the ingredients, and it worked! The kitchen will smell like Thanksgiving morning when you make this.

  • In a bowl, mix the stuffing mix with hot water, and let the mixture stand for 2 minutes to plump up the bread crumbs. In another bowl, mix the ground turkey with beaten eggs, salt, and black pepper. Mix into the stuffing until thoroughly combined. Spoon the loaf mixture into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Very good and very easy!! I love that it was so fast to prepare and didn't require any chopping! It didn't need any sauces or gravy because it was so moist. I halved the recipe (using a 6oz box of stuffing mix) and baked it for 45 minutes. Thanks for sharing this recipe I'll definitely make it again! Read More

i chose this recipe after realizing at the last minute i was out of bread crumbs and i had my heart set on turkey meatloaf. i found this to be a little bit too "wet" for my taste -but all in all it was good. i enjoyed the flavor that the stuffing seasoning gave to the loaf. my kids sliced it thin and ate it on rolls like a hamburger and i diced up my leftovers tonight and ate them in a caesar salad (love the versatility!!) thanks!

I only needed one loaf so I halved everything and baked for about 40 mins. Aside from my slice my boyfriend ate the rest of the loaf. He LOVED it! Great way to change up the ground turkey. I added 1/3 cup romano/asiago cheese a palm full of garlic powder and a palm full of parsley for a little extra. Will definitely make again! Read More

So delicious but WAY too much for 6 servings unless you are feeding lumberjacks! Added a 1/4 tsp. garlic powder 1/4 tsp. red pepper flake and 1/2 TBLS Italian Seasoning. Delicious! Also only used 1/ 1.5 C H20 and added some sauteed sliced portabellos! Served with mash potatoes mac n' cheese and steamed broccoli. The perfect Sunday Dinner! Read More

Incredibly easy and moist. I did add garlic powder and pepper to the meat before adding the stuffing. I also used 1-1/4 lb of ground turkey and 6 oz of stuffing mix. Baked for about 45 minutes or so. Kids liked it and there were no leftovers! Read More
