Sauteed vegetables and oatmeal give this meatloaf a light texture and lots of flavor. No catsup invited.

  • Beat egg, vegetable juice, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, sage, parsley, oregano, salt, black pepper, and hot pepper sauce in a large bowl. Stir in oats and allow to soak.

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, bell pepper, and celery until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir vegetable mixture, mushrooms, and turkey into oat mixture; shape into a loaf and transfer to a broiling pan. Mix tomato sauce and chili sauce in a bowl; pour over turkey loaf.

  • 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 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I made this last night and it was great with the following changes. I beat one egg and added it to the oatmeal, oregano, parsley and pepper. Didn't have sage, or sour cream.Didn't add any other liquid. I used 1 tbsp butter to cook 1/2 onion, 1 celery stick, 1/2 red bell pepper and fresh mushrooms. Mixed it all together and put in loaf dish. Poured medium heat salsa over the top and baked. Really good flavors and stayed moist. Read More

Not a bad flavor though it could use more spice. My biggest problem was that it was mushy. It was very hard to cut into slices or even pieces and I even added a 1/3 cup more of oatmeal because I couldn't even shape it into anything after mixing all the ingredients together. There really isn't that much different between catsup and a mixture of tomato sauce and chili sauce! Read More

My family and I loved this turkey meatloaf. Instead of using fresh vegetables, I added a bag of frozen chopped onion peppers and celery - a real time saver! This was a bit wetter than a traditional meatloaf while shaping it on the pan, but once it cooked up it held together and sliced beautifully. I highly recommend this recipe. My grown son didn't think he'd like it (ground turkey? YUK!) but he became a real fan! Read More

Love this recipe! I adjust the veggies based on what's in the fridge. Also, I use Egg Beaters and Panko bread crumbs instead of the comparable items in the recipe. Last, I top with the can of tomato sauce, drizzles of Worcestershire as well as drops here and there of A1. No matter how you alter this recipe always turns out fabulous. Definitely one of my families favorite. Read More

The flavor was REALLY good. When I made it, it seemed VERY mushy before I put it in the oven. I meal prep for the week so I had another pound of ground turkey in the fridge. I added the entire extra pound & 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs (I ran out of oats when I used the 1/2 cup called for in the recipe). The consistency was perfect after I did so. It came out perfect & the flavor was phenomenal. I'll definitely be making this again but from now on I'll be making it with 2 pounds of turkey. Also, the tomato mixture that is poured on top was WAY too much. I'll probably cut that in half next time & pour it on top halfway through the cooking time as opposed to when first putting it in the oven. Read More

The recipe as is is good, very good flavor from the veggies. Changes I made were to omit the V8 and I used 3 Tbl of Sofrito instead. It's firmer and the turkey is already kind of light in texture so it helps keep it from being too soft. I also used additonal veggies i had in the fridge. I used fresh mushrooms which worked out well and added about 1/3 of a cup of panko in addition to the oatmeal and it came out perfect. Watch the liquid ingredients and you should be fine Read More

Very good meat loaf. My only complaint like some others is that it was mushy. Will add more oats next time. My favorite thing about meatloaf is making a sandwich the next day. Read More

I've never made meatloaf with anything but bread crumbs. The use of rolled oats, so much better... will definately be making this again! Read More
