Salsa Turkey Meatloaf

Me and meat loaf.  I've said it before and I will say it again, never been a big fan.  But my boys love meatloaf.  So, in Addicted to Recipes fashion, I keep trying new recipes, in hopes of finding one that will turn me on to meatloaf.  Here we are with a new recipe, Salsa Turkey Meatloaf.  It's another recipe from the binder - no idea where the recipe came from.

Salsa Turkey Meatloaf

Salsa Turkey Meatloaf | Addicted to Recipes
2 eggs
3/4 cup salsa
3/4 cup panko
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/2 green pepper, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 375F.

In a bowl, beat the eggs.  Add in 1/4 cup salsa, the bread crumbs, onion, green pepper, chili powder, salt, thyme and pepper.  Mix in the turkey.

Pat evenly into 8 x 4 inch pan.  Cover with the reserved salsa (1/2 cup).  Baked for 1 hour 20 minutes, or until meat thermometer registers 185F.

Remove from oven, sprinkle the cheese on top, bake again until the cheese is melted.  Remove from oven, let stand 5 minutes, drain off fat, and serve.

I made this for my boys for dinner on a night when I had plans with girlfriends.  I came home to a very happy husband...and zero meatloaf left in the fridge.  When my sons got up in the morning, both told me how much they liked their dinner.  Score!


  1. I have ground turkey in the freezer that I have been trying to figure out what to do with - I am definitely making this!! (Judy Cowan)

  2. Anything with cheese on top would go over big at our house. Sounds yummy!
