  • nonstick cooking spray

  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • 1 egg

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

  • ¾ cup dry bread crumbs

  • ½ teaspoon adobo seasoning

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 pinch pepper

  • ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided (Optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
