  • Combine ground turkey, egg, parsley, bread crumbs, adobo, and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix well. Press half of the turkey mixture into the bottom of the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese in a mound down the center of the pan; top with the remaining meat to form a loaf.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and cooked through, about 1 hour. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup cheese on top during the last 5 minutes of baking. Allow cooked meatloaf to rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.

Pretty good! I added some onion green pepper and more seasonings as ground turkey can be bland without the extra umppppph! Read More

Made this recipe with 1/2 turkey and 1/2 ground beef to add a little moisture in addition I added a 1/4 cup of diced onion. To whoever said this meal in "dry and uninteresting " add your own spin on it. Read More

This turned out really great esp. since it was my first attempt at a meatloaf. I used different seasonings IE. garlic dried onion teriyaki sauce. I also put mushrooms in the middle and then put the cheese on top of that. Read More

Personally I am not a fan of much of anything in "loaf" form but my kids and husband couldn't stop raving about it! Anything that gets that kind of reaction gets 5 stars in my book! Read More

Easy to make with on-hand ingredients. I spiced it up with some garlic and onion powder sazon from Goya and Spike rather than salt. Nice change of pace! Read More

I just made this and I am hoping it turns out well. I am a vegan. It is for a friend who had a baby. I used to eat poultry and I always enjoyed turkey loaf. I have a fav recipe on allrecipes but didn't have the ingrediants on hand. I think this will be good. My modifications were skipping the cooking spray (we just shouldn't eat things in aerosol cans) was sadly out of parsley skipped adobo seasoning added garlic powder dried minced onions only had 1/2 cup of bread crumbs so I made up the rest with wheat germ and I put 3/4 cup of cheddar inside. On the top I put Trader Joes barbecue sauce. AGain I think it will be good. Read More

I think that this is a FABULOUS recipe. You can do anything with it...add ingredients...or nothing follow the recipe exactly and it's still great. My boyfriend requests it at least once per week. Thanks! Read More
