Health Highlights


1 slice Whole wheat bread
2 tbsp Partly skimmed milk, lactose free, 1% M.F.
454 gm Ground turkey, lean
227 gm Italian sausage, turkey (casings removed)
2 medium Egg
1/2 cup Bread crumbs, plain
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (can do half Romano cheese if you like)
2 tsp Italian herb seasoning, McCormick
2 tsp Onion powder
1 1/2 tsp Granulated garlic
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded Provolone cheese
2 cup Marinara pasta sauce


Preheat oven to 350°degrees.

In a large bowl, mash together the bread and milk until it forms a paste. Next add in the ground turkey, Italian sausage, eggs, breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, onion powder, granulated garlic, salt, pepper, ½c of the shredded mozzarella and provolone cheese, and1 cup of the marinara sauce. Mix all of the ingredients, using your hands, until everything is evenly distributed.

Spray a 7 x 11 or 9 x 11 baking dish with cooking spray. Place the meat mixture into the dish and form it into a loaf. Spread the remaining marinara sauce over the meatloaf. Bake for 75 minutes. Set oven to broil. Sprinkle the rest of the shredded cheese over top and broil for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Remove meatloaf from the oven, let it sit for about 5 minutes, and then serve.


This meatloaf can be assembled ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator or frozen. It can be refrigerated or frozen right in the loaf pan with plastic wrap placed on top. If refrigerated it can go right into the oven and continue with directions. If frozen it will need to thaw some before being cooked. Please note you might need to add extra cooking time depending on how frozen/cold the meat is.

Another option is to cook the meatloaf completely ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator for dinner time.
