    1 hr 5 mins


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Prepare a baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Mix turkey, egg, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic, black pepper, and salt in a large bowl; shape into a loaf and put into prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Spoon about half the tomato sauce over the loaf and continue baking until the meatloaf is no longer pink in the center, 10 to 15 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Rest meatloaf 5 to 10 minutes before slicing to serve.
  4. While the meatloaf rests, warm remaining tomato sauce in a small saucepan over medium-low heat; serve with the sliced meatloaf.

I followed the recipe as written and it was super simple and a big hit - great combination! So much so that the next time I saw ground turkey on sale, I made enough for 3, put each in it's own freezer bag and stored them for easy week night dinners, just thaw and bake. Thanks for the addition to my " freezer food" repertoire!

I did not care for this recipe. It was too bland and not firm enough.

This meatloaf does not fill the pan very high - will double the recipe next time. Tomato sauce with some dried basil sprinkled over is a perfect topping, but I may just try pasta sauce in the future.

This recipe is delicious as written! I personally like to add a shredded zucchini to the mix as well, this adds moisture and healthy veggies to the loaf. Sneak those veggies into your kiddos! Make a double batch and use the left overs for "meatball" sandwiches, grill the slices on a skillet, top with provolone until melted and serve with marinara on a sub roll!

This recipe is amazing! Followed above with no alterations using new Newman own tomato sauce. Very moist, tasteful, and healthy! I will definitely be making this again!

I doubled the recipe, added diced onions and extra garlic; didn't have tomato sauce on hand, so I used marinara sauce instead. DELICIOUS! The marinara sauce made it taste like an Italian meatball. Came out perfect!

I give this recipe 5 stars. I baked it as per the recipe using gluten free breadcrumbs and adding italian seasoning to them. I then topped it with a brownsugar/ketchup/mustard glaze I found on this site instead of the tomato sauce. yummy!!!!!!

Really really good recipe. I added minced onion and shredded carrot, used Italian bread crumbs with romano cheese, and like another reviewer, used Herbes de Provence instead of Italian seasoning. Added a lot of depth but next time I`ll use a little less - forgot how much stronger it is! The texture of the meatloaf was perfect, very moist although I did crank up the heat for the last 15 minutes. Also made a sauce out of brown sugar, ketchup, and mustard and it was tasty. My only complaint is how small it was. Next time I`ll use 2 lbs per loaf AND make several of them to freeze! Thanks for the great recipe!
