  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

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

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! ...

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 meatbal...

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...

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 seasonin...

Made this for dinner the other night. Super quick, easy, and required ingredients I pretty much already had on hand! I didn't have any fresh garlic so I used a bit of garlic salt (just a pinch) ...

This is submitter of this recipe. Thank you for all the good reviews. A few things I would like to mention. I use my own tomato sauce (marinara) in this recipe which has sautéed onions and garli...
