Ketchup, Worcestershire, and egg white add meaty umami flavor and moisture to this healthier spin on meatloaf made from a mix of ground turkey and turkey breast in place of the fattier beef-pork-veal combo that is a diner menu mainstay. Another healthy trick: Dry mustard and dehydrated garlic powder add loads of flavor to the mixture without additional sodium. Serve this with cauliflower puree and braised hearty greens like kale or collards.


Uncooked onion(s)

1 medium, finely chopped

Sweet red pepper(s)

1 medium, finely chopped

Uncooked 93% lean ground turkey

1 pound(s)

Uncooked extra lean ground turkey breast

1 pound(s), lean


1 cup(s), divided

Seasoned breadcrumbs

½ cup(s)

Egg white(s)

1 large


2 Tbsp

Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp

Garlic powder

1 tsp

Table salt

¼ tsp

Black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool 10 minutes.
  3. Blend together the ground turkey and turkey breast, the onion mixture, 1/2 cup of the ketchup, the bread crumbs, egg white, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Transfer the mixture to the baking sheet and shape into a 5×10-inch loaf, about 2-1/2 inches thick. Spread the remaining 1/2 cup ketchup over the top of the meat loaf. Bake until a thermometer inserted into the center of the meatloaf registers 165ºF, about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
