If you prefer a larger meatloaf loaf, you can use this Turkey Meatloaf Recipe.

I got the cutest Petite Loaf Pan for Christmas and thought individual mini meatloaves would be a perfect recipe to break it in.

These are easy to make, kid friendly and they cook quicker than making one big loaf. I actually prefer turkey meatloaf to beef, it’s always moist and has great flavor. Instead of using breadcrumbs, I swapped them for heart-healthy oatmeal for added nutrition. Serve this with Skinny Garlic Mashed Potatoes and a fresh veggie on the side for a complete meal!

  1. I made this tonight using 1 lb of turkey and didn’t find it dry at all. I used quick oats. I also used my bar/brownie pan to make smaller serving sizes for my pre-schooler.  It made 6 loaves in total and was absolutely delicious. Since there weren’t any left to freeze for another day, I think I’ll make a double batch next time! Great recipe, thanks for sharing it!

  2. I have made this recipe a number of times…now tweaked it and when I saute the onions, I add some diced red peppers and then 2 cups or more of baby spinach at the end (chopped up),,,,this adds some veggies to the dish and keeps it moist as well. Great to freeze as well!

  3. Love love love this recipe and it is a favourite of both grandkids. Plus easy to transport for sharing. I like it with extra sauce on top and a salad. Grandkids like it with baked beans on the side. Just watch them so you don’t overcook. They don’t take long.

  4. The recipe isn’t bad and my 5 yr old ate it. I made it in a muffin tin. I added 1/4 cup of the meat mixture to each cup cake tin slot and filled up 8 slots. I think I’ll add some minced veggies in next time.

  5. I made this tonight but didn’t have ground turkey so I used the ground beef and pork I had at had.  I love how easy this was especially with the petite loaf pan.  I’d love to try it with turkey and maybe find a way to add some hidden veggies in there.

  6. I made this last night for the first time. I agree that it was a bit on the dry side but I tend to like it that way.
    Next time I make this I will add finely grated zucchini. I will also use 2# of ground turkey as I could eat meatloaf every day. The flavor was great!

  7. Pretty good, but a little dry with the turkey breast. I only has 1 lb of turkey (I don’t think the 1 1/3 lb packages are very common anymore, so the recipe should probably be adjusted to reflect). Anyhow, I reduced the osts to 1/4 cup. I also didn’t realize that the onion was supposed to be cooked and I had already dumped it in, so I just left it raw. I didn’t use the olive oil since I didn’t cook the onions.

    I made 6 mini loaves, for 3 servings which worked out to 2 SP each. I think the recipe could benefit from a little grated zucchini or half 93% ground turkey for a bit more moisture. 

  8. Question – if I used the 12 slot mini loaf pan how much would you increase it by since the slots are smaller? 

  9. I made this tonight with the oats to make it a healthier version.  It was delicious and the family loved it.  My husband said it should definitely go into the rotation.  I highly recommend this meatloaf!  We had it with a salad and it was perfect.

  10. I’m sorry but I’m not understanding the Smart Points vs. the Freestyle points.  I see one tha just says “Points 5” and one that says “Smart Points 3”.  You say the Smart points have been changed to teflect the Freestyle.  So which one am I to count?

    1. The Points plus is 5 (program before Smart Points), the Smart Points have been updated to reflect the new Free Style program. Hope this makes it less confusing!

  11. This recipe is great for meal prep and every night is like a little serving of healthy comfort food! Pair with veggies and you’ve got the perfect dinner.

  12. Great way to get 4 quick meals out of a package of turkey! Maybe 4.5 stars based on taste, but the value and simplicity are worth a lot. I specifically look up your Freezer Friendly meals and this is a perfect way to use up turkey, make a dinner, and throw a couple in the freezer (if you’re cooking for 1 or 2) for an easy, healthy meal.
