Skillet Harissa Turkey Meatloaf – making them in the skillet means ready in less than 30 minutes! These got RAVE reviews on Skinnytaste!

I took my basic turkey meatloaf recipe, and swapped the ketchup for jarred Mina Harrisa (or you can use homemade). I also added shredded zucchini to the mix and made them in the skillet. The results were juicy, quick, delicious round meatloaves with a little kick! I served it with a simple chopped cucumber and tomato salad which I tossed with a little olive oil, fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper.

You can purchase Mina Harissa on Amazon and Whole Foods carries it as well, it’s a bright red Moroccan condiment that can be used with couscous, vegetables, meats or whatever you want.

If you prefer to make this in the oven as a large loaf, you can! Bake it at 350°F for 1 hour.

  1. What can i substitute for zucchini?  I am currently out of it and am worried a sub might make it drier.  

  2. Love your recipes but often they are 1.3 lbs of meat rather than just 1 lb. Why is that?

    Thanks!

  3. Sent to Amazon for the Harissa as no one around here seems to carry it. Loved this recipe. I made it for the first time today and cut back a bit on Harissa as I am spice challenged and was not sure how hot it would be, but in this case the mild Harissa was wonderful and I can use the whole amount without trepidation. My husband said I can make this anytime. We loved it. I am always intrigued how changing just the seasonings makes the recipe completely new. My cooking is to sear it in the skillet on both sides-this case for 2 minutes plus on each side then I finish covered in the oven at 350. Juicy and wonderful. I tend to make any burger or steak this way.
