Millions of people are already familiar with our Mozzarella Stuffed Meatloaf recipe, and one of the most common requests we receive is to develop a turkey patty. We get it, red meat isn’t for everyone. So whether you’re looking for healthier meatloaf recipes for dietary or personal reasons, this is for you.Although it may actually yes Healthier than standard meatloaf, but definitely not as healthy in taste. Can you add cheese to this recipe? Absolutely! But today we’re keeping it in its traditional meatloaf – turkey style!

Is ground turkey good for you?

This is a question without a clear answer. Ground turkey comes in several different fat ratios, just like ground beef. Choose leaner turkey for less saturated fat and cholesterol than ground beef. You have to compare nutrition labels at the grocery store to accurately compare the ground turkey and ground beef you buy. Like most things, ground turkey can be part of a balanced, healthy diet.

Türkiye Meatloaf Cooking Time:

For food safety, turkey patties need to reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. For a two-pound patty baked at 350°F, this takes about 1 hour. However, if you’re using more than 2 lbs, you don’t need to double the cooking time. Add about 30 minutes for each additional pound of turkey.

Dark and white meat:

You have the flexibility to adjust the fat ratio of the ground turkey you use in this recipe. We use a mix of a pound of lean, white turkey and a pound of dark, less lean turkey. Having a bit of dark meat yields a wetter patty, which has always been our preference. This recipe will definitely work with 100% lean white meat turkey or 100% dark meat. Whatever you do will yield delicious results.
