Making meatloaf in the skillet is perfect for busy weeknights – it's ready in less than 30 minutes! I took my basic turkey meatloaf recipe, swapped the ketchup for jarred Mina Harrisa (or you can use homemade), added shredded zucchini and made them in the skillet.

Making meatloaf in the skillet is perfect for busy weeknights – it's ready in less than 30 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup grated zucchini (all moisture squeezed dry with paper towel)
  • 2 tbsp onion (minced)
  • 2 tbsp diced red pepper
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat seasoned breadcrumbs (use plain for dairy free)
  • 1/4 cup Harissa (such as Mina)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1.3 lb 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Harissa Sauce for topping
  • 1 1/2 tbsp ketchup

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix the zucchini, onion, garlic, red pepper, breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup Harissa, egg, paprika and salt.
  • Add the turkey and combine until mixed through.
  • Form the meat into 5 round patties.
  •  Combine the remaining 1 1/2 tbsp Harissa with the ketchup in a small bowl.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium. Spray with oil and cook covered until cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes per side, reducing the heat if they start to get too browned.
  • Brush the Harissa-ketchup mixture on top during the last few minutes of cooking.
