Turkey Meatloaf

I have never made meatloaf before, but after numerous requests and the help of Gourmet, I received raves and because of the positive feedback, the recipe warranted a second batch.


Adapted from Gourmet

  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3/4 pound portabella mushrooms, trimmed and very finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup plus 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 cup fine fresh bread crumbs (from 2 slices firm white sandwich bread)
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 whole large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/4 pound ground turkey

Preheat oven to 400°F. Cook onion and garlic in oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderate heat, stirring, until onion is softened, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid mushrooms give off is evaporated and they are very tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in Worcestershire sauce, and 3 tablespoons ketchup and sriracha, then transfer vegetables to a large bowl and cool.

Stir together bread crumbs and milk in a small bowl and let stand 5 minutes. Stir in egg, then add to vegetables. Add turkey and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to vegetable mixture and mix well with your hands.

Form into a pan and brush meatloaf evenly with remaining 2 tablespoons ketchup. Bake in middle of oven until thermometer inserted into meatloaf registers 170°F, 50 to 55 minutes.

Let meatloaf stand 5 minutes before serving.
