Lazy Girl's Cheese-Stuffed Turkey Meatloaf

Makes 16 Slices: 30P/15C/13F



  • 2 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs optional
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 large eggs or 1 flax egg 1 tablespoon ground flax + 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup 4 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Salt pepper & seasoning of choice


  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray or parchment paper.
  2. Combine the glaze ingredients in a small bowl.
  3. In a large bowl combine ground turkey, breadcrumbs, ketchup, egg (or flax egg), salt, pepper, and other seasonings. Mix with your hands until well blended. Place on a 12- x 16-inch piece of plastic wrap (or parchment paper) and pat firmly into a 10- x 12-inch rectangle.
  4. Sprinkle cheese mixture evenly over ground turkey. Roll up jelly roll-style, starting from the short end, by lifting plastic wrap and removing it as you roll. Seal ends well. Place seam-side down in prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake 45 minutes. Remove from oven, brush the glaze over the top of the roll, and return to oven for about 15 minutes, or until no pink remains. Remove from oven and allow to stand 10 minutes.
  6. Slice into 16 slices and serve.
