  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup pepper jack cheese diced into small cubes or shredded
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper

Meatloaf Glaze:

  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Next, lightly grease a meatloaf pan with some oil and set aside. Similarly, you can make the meatloaf on a baking sheet, cover it with aluminum foil and lightly grease with oil. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl mix all the ingredients from the "Meatloaf Glaze" list until fully combined. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, milk, egg, onion, garlic, bread crumbs, dried parsley, Italian seasoning herbs, salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix well until combined.
  • Add cheese and mix well until combined
  • Then, shape the mixture into a loaf like shape and transfer it to the meatloaf pan, or place it onto a baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 60 minutes, and midway through baking, spoon the "Meatloaf Glaze" on top of the meatloaf, distribute it evenly and bake for another 20-30 minutes. Or until the internal temperature of meat is 160-165 degrees F.
  • Once done, transfer meatloaf pan from the oven onto a cooling rack and let it sit for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
