  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/3 cup oats quick or old-fashioned
  • 1/3 cup vegetable juice or tomato juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • 2 tablespoons pure butter
  • 1 cup white mushroom pieces or slices
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth fat-free
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, add meatloaf ingredients and mix well. Lightly oil a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan and add meatloaf ingredients. Shape meat mixture into a loaf. Bake uncovered 45 minutes, or until the center has lost its pink color.
  • During the last 10-15 minutes of cooking the meatloaf, make the gravy. In a large skillet on medium-low heat, add the butter. When melted, add mushrooms and cook until softened, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Add flour, cook, and stir until lightly browned. Slowly add broth and balsamic vinegar, whisking to combine. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, reduce to medium-low and continue cooking until gravy has thickened, 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and add salt and pepper.
  • Remove meatloaf from pan, slice, and add gravy over the sliced loaf.
  • Enjoy!

  1. I had never thought to make this with turkey. Great idea since I can get ground turkey virtually fat free. I make mine with salt free cream of mushroom soup, undiluted, both in the meat and in the gravy, using 1/2 cup oats and omitted the V8. Then I make 4 small meatloafs and cook it covered with half the grave for about a half hour in a heavy covered fry pan. Add the rest of the gravy on top of the mini loafs after cooking. It was one of my late husband’s favorite meals and he was extremely picky. Thank you for the recipe!!5 stars
