Dinner Tonight: Mini BBQ Turkey Meatloaves

I’ve said it a million times…Andrew’s favorite supper is my mom’s meatloaf recipe.  If I made it every night of the week, he wouldn’t complain.  Over the years, I’ve tweaked it into meatballs, a sloppy joe and even a burger…I’m always thinking of ways to mix and match his favorite recipe.  The other night, I made a turkey version and it was a big hit!  My kiddos and my hubby were happy eaters.  Praise the meatloaf!
This recipe made 5 mini meatloaves but of course, you could place it all in an 8×8 baking dish and make one meatloaf instead.  You would adjust your baking time to about 30 minutes.

Shopping List
1 pound ground turkey
1 cup Panko or breadcrumbs
2 eggs, beaten
about 6 to 8 green onions, chopped (reserve a few for the end)
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, divided
1 1/2 cups ketchup, divided
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon mustard

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line a baking sheet with foil (for easy clean up) and lightly spray with Pam.  Set aside.

Mix ground turkey, Panko, eggs, green onions, salt, 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, and half a cup of ketchup in a bowl.  Shape the mixture into 4 or 5 mini meatloaves.  Place on prepared baking sheet and place in the oven for about 20 minutes.   
While the meatloaves are baking, combine remaining 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, one cup of ketchup, brown sugar and mustard in a bowl.  Once 20 minutes is up, top each meatloaf with sauce and return to oven for 5 to 10 more minutes.

Remove from oven, garnish with a few more green onions and serve.

I hope your family enjoys this meal as much as mine does!

    My family loves meatloaf too and I'm always finding new ways to serve it. Another thing we have at our house is what I call Haburger Hash. I brown up the meat like for sloppy joes, then I add diced red potatoes (or to make it even easier frozen diced hashbrown potatoes) all of my meatloaf ingredients, and beef broth to help the potatoes cook better. I cook all that down together until the potatoes are cooked and then it's finished. My family puts a little extra ketchup or sauce on and devours this! It's like a skillet hamburger casserole. I'm sure this would work with your sauce too.

    Just wondering could you use tin of chopped tomatoes or puree and half the ketchup?

      I would sub tomato sauce (found in the 8 oz cans) instead. šŸ™‚

    This looks so good! My daughter has an egg allergy – any good ideas to substitute egg in this recipe? Thank you!

      Omit the egg, double the panko and bake it in an 8×8 pan :). Enjoy!

    Did you also add bbq sauce – or is it barbeque flavored based on your ingredients?

    Looks super delicious! Especially served with sweet potato fries šŸ™‚

    My son is obsessed with your turkey sloppy joes…I'm definitely going to sneak this one into the rotation; I have a feeling it will be a winner.

    Made these last night! DELICIOUS! I was out of Worcester sauce so I used honey mustard instead and didn't have green onion so I just finely chopped a regular onion. My husband, 3 and 2 year olds LOVED IT! This is in the rotation now! Thanks for the recipe!

    made these tonight, so good! a fun twist on typical meatloaf. Thx for sharing! šŸ™‚

    Made these for dinner last night, YUM! My husband was leery, thought the turkey would make a meatloaf that was too dry (and I have to say I was a little worried too), but they were very moist and really good flavor. Will make them again for sure! Your recipes are batting 1000 in our house.

    Love these! So yummy and a big hit in our house! Even my 10 month baby was all about them (w/o the sauce though :))

    Made these tonight, so delish! Thanks for the recipe! The sauce on top turned out to be amazing as well. Easy for a busy week night šŸ™‚
