Turkey Meatloaf with Feta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

I like using turkey in place of beef for this meatloaf to lighten it up a bit, but there's no sacrificing flavor here! This meatloaf is studded with salty feta cheese and sweet briney sundried tomatoes to give it loads of satisfying texture - and it tastes great. It makes excellent leftovers too - just sear up the slices in a pan with a little olive oil!

  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup marinated sun-dried tomatoes, (chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic, (minced, optional)
  • 2 eggs, (at room temperature, lightly beaten)
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound ground turkey, (preferably dark meat)


  1. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Spray a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, parsley, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, if using, eggs, milk, feta, salt, and pepper. Add the turkey and gently stir to combine, being careful not to overwork the meat.
  4. Carefully pack the meat mixture into the prepared pan and bake until the internal temperature registers 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and slice. Put on a serving platter and serve.

    Delicious. Makes the kitchen very fragrant while baking. The meatloaf is low in stature and thus doesn't look too impressive on the plate. It needs to be supplemented with substantial sides, as shown in the sample photo.
