You’ll Need

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 lb ground turkey
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp dried sage
  • 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 10–12 bacon strips

Prep and Cook

  • Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place oil in a skillet set over medium-high heat. Add onions and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and carrots and cook for another minute or two. Remove from stovetop and allow to cool.
  • Combine breadcrumbs and milk in a small bowl and stir. Add egg and mix to combine.
  • In a large mixing bowl add turkey, parsley, salt, sage and pepper. Add cooled vegetables and milk mixture and mix with hands until everything is combined. Shape meat into a 10” x 5” loaf and set on baking sheet.
  • Brush top of loaf with ketchup and lay strips of bacon diagonally across turkey, taking care to overlap them. Tuck bacon ends under the meatloaf.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, or until middle of the meatloaf reaches an internal temperature of 160°F.
