Homestyle Turkey Meatloaf with Mushrooms

This is an unbelievably tender and loaded with flavor turkey meatloaf with mushrooms recipe. A lighter version of the classic beef meatloaf, this juicy and delicious meatloaf gets a boost in umami flavor from cremini mushrooms.


Units Scale
  • 2 cups chopped cremini mushrooms
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 and 1/3 pounds ground turkey, 93% lean
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Set aside.
  2. Put mushrooms, onion, celery, and garlic into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse 5 to 10 times or until the vegetables are finely chopped. Place the vegetables into a large bowl.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl with the vegetables.
  4. Gently mix the ingredients until just combined.
  5. Form the meat mixture into a loaf about 7 inches by 10 inches on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake for about 45 to 50 minutes. The meatloaf should be golden brown and caramelized on the edges. The internal temperature should be 165 degrees F on a digital thermometer.
  7. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and let cool about 10 minutes before slicing.


  • Finely chop the mushroom, onion, and celery. They add moisture to the meatloaf. A food processor makes quick work of this task.
  • Skip the extra lean ground turkey for this recipe. Lean ground turkey (usually 93% lean) will add the needed fat for a tasty meatloaf.
  • Add flavor and moisture to the turkey meatloaf by including egg, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Don’t overmix the ingredients. This results in a dense and heavy meatloaf.
  • Use a digital thermometer to cook the turkey meatloaf to 165 degrees F. Overcooking leads to a dry and tasteless meatloaf.
  • Bake the meatloaf on a foil lined baking sheet and not in a loaf pan. The meatloaf will steam in the loaf pan and will not have the smoky caramelized edges that are so flavorful.
