Broccoli & Cheddar Healthy Turkey Meatloaf Recipe


This HEALTHY turkey meatloaf recipe has secret veggies in it, can you see them? My recipe for healthy turkey meatloaf takes just 10 min prep!


  • 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup grated white onion
  • 2 cups frozen riced broccoli (or broccoli and cauliflower blend)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (divided into 1 cup and 1/2 cup)
  • ketchup for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Prepare ingredients:
    In a medium bowl, stir together bread crumbs and milk.
    Grate onion. 
    Heat riced broccoli and cauliflower until warm in microwave.
  3. To the bread crumbs, stir in onion, egg, seasoning salt and black pepper. Add turkey, riced broccoli, 1 cup shredded cheese and mix together with hands until combined. You don’t want to overwork the meat, but do want all of the bread crumb mixture incorporated. 
  4. Shape the mixture into an oblong shape on a parchment paper lined rimmed baking sheet and  sprinkle with remaining ½ cup of shredded cheese and bake for 45-60 minutes, until the turkey meatloaf reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. 
  5. Let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing. 
  6. Serve with ketchup if desired. 


  • Be sure to use a mix of light and dark ground turkey, NOT 99% fat-free turkey. 
  • To turn these into meatballs: Prepare as directed, but instead of shaping them into a meatloaf shape, scoop and roll them into about 1 1/2 inch meatballs and place them on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Spritz with olive oil (optional, helps with browning) and bake for 20-24 minutes, until meatballs are cooked through and have reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
