Healthy Meatloaf Recipe

I’m really good at finding a way to put a healthy spin on comfort foods!!  My favorite comfort food is meatloaf, and I’ve found a way to make it extra healthy!

By substituting ground turkey for some of the beef to reduce the amount of fat, using oatmeal instead of bread to improve the amount of fiber, and using spicy tomato juice instead of ketchup to reduce the amount of sugar!

(Serves 4)


  • 1/2 pound ground beef (96/4 or 90/10)
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 1/4 cup spicy tomato juice (or regular tomato juice and add 1-2 tbsp hot sauce)

  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
