I’ve never made meatloaf. In fact, I’ve always turned meatloaf recipes into meatballs. However, today was the day that was going to change. I just didn’t feel like making endless balls of yummy meat goodness, and instead decided that a meatloaf would be perfect. It’s been a lazy Monday, so to celebrate lazyness, my BBQ meatloaf hit the spot.
I used my own BBQ sauce for this. But you can use any kind you like, or even just some ketchup to make the top moist and delicious.
Adapted from Skinnytaste
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp ketchup
- 2 tsp worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 small onion, minced
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1.3 lb 99% lean ground turkey
- 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I use 4c Whole Wheat)
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp allspice
- salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine 2 tbsp ketchup and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.
Cut up the onion as finely as you can, or if you like (which is what I did), add them to a food processor (I have a mini one, so my clean up was a cinch) and puree the onion.
In a medium bowl mix turkey, onion, breadcrumbs, egg, 1/4 cup ketchup, salt and marjoram. Place mixture into a loaf pan or shape into a loaf and place on a baking pan. Spoon sauce on top and sides. Bake uncovered for 55-60 minutes, and halfway take out of the oven to add your extra sauce if desired (like BBQ).
Remove from oven and let it sit for 5 minutes before slicing.
