Mini Turkey Italian Meatloaf


Meatloaf: – 1.3 lbs. ground turkey (93% - 90% lean ground turkey) – 1 c. marinara sauce, divided – 1/2 c. dry oatmeal – 1 egg – 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce – 1 Tbsp. dried, minced onion – 1 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning – 1/2 tsp. garlic salt – 1/2 tsp. pepper – 2 mozzarella cheese sticks, cut in half Vegetables and Potatoes: – 1 lb. red potatoes, cut into small pieces – 2 c. broccoli florets – 2 c. carrots, sliced – 1 Tbsp. olive oil – 1/2 tsp.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey, oatmeal, 1/2 cup of the marinara sauce (reserving the other 1/2 cup for topping), Worcestershire sauce, egg, dried onions, Italian seasoning, garlic salt and pepper. Stir until all ingredients are well combined. Try not to overmix.

Step 2

Divide mixture into 4 equal parts. Using your hands, form each mini meatloaf into an oval. Place a 1/2 of a mozzarella cheese stick into the center of the meatloaf, and then enclose the cheese with the meat. Place each mini meatloaf on a sheet pan.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, add the potatoes, broccoli and carrots. Coat with the olive oil and add the Italian seasoning and garlic salt. Stir together to coat. Pour the vegetable mixture onto the sheet pan with the mini meatloaves.

Step 4

Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and top each meatloaf with the remaining marinara sauce, about 2 tablespoons per meatloaf. Return pan to oven and bake for another 15 minutes.
