How To Make Italian Turkey Meatloaf
This Italian turkey meatloaf is packed with flavor and easy to make! First, blend the rolled oats in a blender. After that, lightly spray a pan with olive oil over medium heat and sauté the chopped onions. When the onions are almost done cooking, crush the garlic into the pan. Also, add a pinch of salt and a pinch of the Italian herbs to the pan. Make sure to cook the onions until they are translucent.
Next, combine the blended rolled oats, Italian herbs, and salt in a large bowl. Then, add ¼ CUP of the marinara sauce to the bowl. After that, add the egg, Worcestershire sauce, sauteed onions, and ground turkey breast to the bowl. Thoroughly combine all of the ingredients.
On a sheet pan with parchment paper, form a 2-3 inch high meatloaf. Then, add the rest of the marinara sauce on top of the meatloaf. After that, bake the turkey meatloaf and enjoy! We love topping ours with fresh basil and freshly grated parmesan cheese.
