Tasty Turkey Meatloaf With Sauce


After looking at many different turkey meatloaf recipes and not liking any one in particular, I decided to create my own! Add Dijon mustard to sauce for an added flavor.

6 servings



  • 1 pound lean ground turkey

  • 1 cup oats

  • ½ onion, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons pear applesauce

  • 3 tablespoons chili powder

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • ½ cup barbeque sauce (such as Sweet Baby Ray's®)

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Mix ground turkey, oats, 1/2 chopped onion, pear applesauce, 3 tablespoons chili powder, egg, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl; press into an 8-inch square baking dish.

  3. Heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir 2 tablespoons onion until softened and lightly browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir brown sugar, barbeque sauce, and 1 teaspoon chili powder into onion; cook over low heat until sauce is warm, about 5 minutes.

  4. Bake meatloaf in the preheated oven, occasionally brushing sauce over the top, until cooked through, about 50 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
