"Yummiest meatloaf I've ever tasted. It has so much flavor and stays very moist. Everyone I've served it to loves it. My kids go crazy over it and don't realize they are consuming veggies. This recipe freezes well. Whenever I take the time to do a recipe that takes time (like chopping veggies) and freezes well, I multiply the recipe, eating one for dinner that night and freezing a few more for later."

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Combine ground beef, ground turkey, egg, celery, rolled oats, skim milk, ketchup, onion, green pepper, parsley, dry mustard, salt, minced garlic, and black pepper in a bowl until thoroughly combined; mixture will be moist. Transfer mixture into a 5x9-inch loaf pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the meatloaf reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 1 1/2 hours. Meatloaf may still look pink inside due to ketchup.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If your children don't like to see vegetables in their meatloaf at all, use your blender and blend the veggies with the milk (I use the chopper blade in a food processor).

This was great. I doubled the veggies and used 2 pounds extra lean ground beef. I also doubled the oats and used an extra egg. It was enough to make 2 large loaves. It could have used a little m...

I left out the green peppers, used all turkey meat and replace the parsley with sage, then baked in muffin papers for 25 minutes. Delicious!

I loved this recipe! So did the hubby. My kids were not huge fans, but they don't really like meat. I added a ketchup brown sugar mixture to the top of the loaf for the last 30 minutes in the...

I wanted something healthy made with Turkey and don't want to use bread crumbs. This is perfect. My 1 year old son LOVEs LOVEs it. So does my husband.

My family loved this! I used pureed spinach and skipped the peppers. Was great!
