As the weather gets colder and colder here in Wisconsin, I find myself craving foods that are colorful and comforting, but also healthy. This turkey meatloaf and roasted vegetables is just that – the colors from the beautiful roasted veggies just make one think of sunnier days, and the turkey meatloaf is so good and a very nostalgic food. The vegetables in this recipe are from my weekly Door to Door Organics order because their services are incredible (delivered organic groceries save me SO much time and the products are so good!)

Roasted vegetables

Growing up I don’t think we ever ate ground turkey – was that even a thing in the 90s? Now I love using it as a healthy dinner ingredient. I’m totally in love with making meatloaf recipes (as you can tell from my previous posts on mini cheese stuffed meatloaf cups or this mushroom and Jarlsberg meatloaf) but have never shared my tried and true plain ‘ole meatloaf recipe that I make. It’s totally not boring, I promise!

In fact, you guys already know how I feel about the term ‘the best’…I shared when I posted the best salted caramel chocolate chip cookies… I only use the term when it is something I’ve made countless times and it is truly delicious, deserving of the title THE BEST. And this turkey meatloaf and roasted vegetables, man-oh-man, it is SO good and truly the best turkey meatloaf recipe!

A funny side note here – I’m in the midst of finishing up my cookbook, right? Well I was emailing with my editor and she mentioned that she noticed I say recipes are my “go-to” a lot, that made me laugh, I told her it’s TRUE, certain recipes are my go-to ones. This meatloaf and roasted veggies would definitely fall in that category.

    My favorite nostalgic dish is beef and noodles, when I was a young boy my grandmother would make it a couple times a month for us and even more often in the winter. She even went as far as making the noodles from scratch, truly miss it!

    • Sweetphi

      Oh yum, beef and noodles sounds amazing – especially since your grandmother made the noodles herself – that’s quite the accomplishment! Thank you for commenting and entering.

  • Pat Claypoole

    I’m going to have to make sure I have all the ingredients for this as soon as this ice outside melts. Looks amazing!
    My favorite nostalgic dish is my great grandmother’s Italian Wedding Soup. So easy to put together and tastes better after resting in the frig a day or two!

    • Sweetphi

      Thank you so much Pat, I think you will love this turkey meatloaf – it’s truly so good and I make it all the time!

  • Sarah

    Looks marvelous Phi! And i’m sure well-deserved in both “the best” and “go-to” categories 😉

    My favorite nostalgic dish is my mom’s chicken turnovers made with chicken, cream cheese, and onions, which is then stuffed into pillsbury croissants. So it’s definitely not a The Gourmet Gourmand style recipe, but I love it and make it from time to time when I’m needing some good comfort-food in my life.

    Good luck with your cookbook! Super excited about it and can’t wait to hear more 🙂

    • Sweetphi

      Your mom’s chicken turnovers sound sooo good I would totally love to see the recipe gourmand style 🙂

  • Susan Craig

    My grandmother made Shoyu Chicken – that is my favorite dish.

    • Sweetphi

      Dishes made by grandmothers are always the best – I’ve never heard of Shoyu Chicken so I’ll have to look that up!

  • Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy

    I am seeing roasted vegetables everywhere at the moment and that makes me very happy! It’s the best way to eat vegetables.

    • Sweetphi

      Roasted vegetables are all the rage! I make them ALL the time, it’s definitely my go to 🙂

  • Shawnna

    hey girl this looks oh so yummy!

    • Sweetphi

      Thank you so much, I really appreciate that!

  • Rust

    Nostalgia ….my grandma’s gumbo. Perfect!

    • Sweetphi

      Oh yum – you know, now I’m wanting some gumbo!

  • Summer

    This looks so colourful and yummy ♥

    This looks so yummy! I love a good, healthy meal of lean meats and veggies! I bet the addition of sour cream keeps it so moist and succulent; Thanks for sharing! 😀

    • Sweetphi

      The addition of sour cream is definitely the secret to having moist turkey meatloaf every time 🙂 Thanks for commenting!

  • Ashton Jury

    This looks delicious! Do you think it would still work if I made it in a cupcake tin? I love making individual meatloaf’s, for meal prepping my lunches, and also my husband is like 5 so he likes cupcake style. Also can’t wait to make those veggies! I love pretty much any roasted vegetable.

    • Sweetphi

      This would totally be great in cucpcake style individual meatloafs (my husband likes them like that too!)

  • Little Cooking Tips

    We never tried a turkey meatloaf before, it sounds really interesting! We bet with this recipe it won’t be boring and blunt, so we’ll be definitely giving this a go! Like you, we never had ground turkey in the 80s and 90s as we were growing up, but turkey is a very nutritious and healthy meat. Excellent idea Phi, pinned ASAP!

    • Sweetphi

      Thank you so much for the pin, much appreciated! And this meatloaf would also be good with ground beef, but this is my husbands’ favorite healthy meatloaf, it’s sooooo good, definitely worth giving it a go 🙂
