  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine ground turkey, egg, parsley, bread crumbs, adobo, and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix well. Press half of the turkey mixture into the bottom of the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the 1/2 cup cheese in a mound down the center of the pan; top with the remaining meat to form a loaf.
  3. Bake meatloaf in the preheated oven until browned and cooked through, about one hour. If desired, sprinkle with the optional 1/4 cup cheese during the last 5 minutes of baking. Allow cooked meatloaf to rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.

Pretty good! I added some onion, green pepper, and more seasonings as ground turkey can be bland without the extra umppppph!

Made this recipe with 1/2 turkey and 1/2 ground beef to add a little moisture, in addition I added a 1/4 cup of diced onion. To whoever said this meal in "dry and uninteresting," add your own spin on it.

Personally, I am not a fan of much of anything in "loaf" form, but my kids and husband couldn't stop raving about it! Anything that gets that kind of reaction gets 5 stars in my book!

This turned out really great, esp. since it was my first attempt at a meatloaf. I used different seasonings IE. garlic, dried onion, teriyaki sauce. I also, put mushrooms in the middle and then put the cheese on top of that.

It was a hit with my family. And SO easy! Thanks. =)

Easy to make with on-hand ingredients. I spiced it up with some garlic and onion powder, sazon from Goya, and Spike rather than salt. Nice change of pace!
