Fall turkey loaf

Here is a recipe of an extremely easy, lean, healthy and bread-less meat loaf I often make on weekdays. It is very tasty and makes the vegetables appetizing. It features the classic Fall vegetables and makes a colorful meal my family enjoys.

Fall turkey loaf


  • 800 gr of lean ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoon of fresh sage, cut in small slices
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and cut in large slices
  • 1/2 large butternut squash, peeled and cut in large cubes
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Blender large enough to fit all the vegetables
  • 1 cooking pan with lid

Preheat your oven to 350F.

Place the carrots, the butternut squash and the onion in the blender and cut until the vegetables are in very small pieces, but not in puree (see picture below - Before cooking).

Place the ground turkey, the eggs, the cut vegetables, the sage and the salt and pepper in the cooking pan. Mix with your hands until you have a uniform meat dough. Fashion into a loaf (see picture below - Before cooking).

Cover pan with the lid and place in the oven 1hr or until the juice bubbling out of the loaf is clear.

The resulting meat will be most and lightly sweet from the vegetables and the color will make you smile! Eat with mash potatoes, salad or any other sides you love!
