Thanksgiving-Style Turkey Meatloaf

Thanksgiving-Style Turkey Meatloaf

"This recipe is a great alternative to traditional meatloaf. It's delicious using veggies and ground turkey to compliment one another. The white gravy adds a sense of the holiday season with its wonderful aroma and flavor. Please be aware, measurements are estimates as I use the Italian-style 'to taste' method of cooking. Go with what feels right!"

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x9 inch square baking dish.
  2. Mix the ground turkey with the eggs, onion, rolled oats, green beans, cranberries, rosemary, and bay leaf in a large bowl. Use your hands to thoroughly blend the ingredients. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread the ground turkey mixture over the bottom of the prepared dish. Top with a layer of pancetta.
  3. Bake the meatloaf in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Check for doneness when juices run clear, and an internal thermometer inserted into the meatloaf reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
  4. Meanwhile, to make the gravy, melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Stir in the flour, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until the mixture becomes paste-like and light brown. Stir in the garlic, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Gradually whisk in the milk and chicken broth, bringing the mixture to a boil. Lower the heat to medium, and continue cooking and whisking until desired thickness is reached. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve spooned over sliced meatloaf.

I thought this was just OK. I was leery about green beans cooking, so I used food processor to gently chop the green beans, onion and cranberries, which worked very quickly and easily. I think if you are a fan of turkey meatloaf, you'd like this. I'm not sure I enjoyed the cinnamon and nutmeg flavor in the gravy; if it were a more traditional turkey gravy, I believe the gravy would have appealed more to my personal tastes and helped to make the meatloaf taste more to my liking. It did look pretty, and the pancetta crisped up beautifully on the top. Next time, I'll layer more on the top than the nine slices I used since it shrinks. I followed the recipe exactly. See pics in pan and sliced.


The meatloaf was great, but the sauce was gross.


instead of "regular rolled oats" try crushing some seasoned bagged stuffing mix - omit the green beans too!
