Mozzarella-Stuffed Turkey Meatloaf

by Mercedes Sandoval


for 4 servings

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 cup zucchini, shredded, squeezed gently of excess moisture with kitchen towels
  • 2 cloves garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons Sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 slices mozzarella cheese


  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  • parsley, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F/190˚C.
  2. Prepare sauce in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Combine all other ingredients (except for the cheese) in a large bowl until evenly distributed.
  4. Add in half of the meatloaf mixture to a greased loaf pan and flatten to form an even layer.
  5. Add slices of cheese to form a thin layer on top of the meatloaf. Fill loaf pan with remainder of meatloaf, smoothing out the final top layer.
  6. Top meatloaf with half of the tomato sauce mixture, using a spoon or rubber spatula to cover the top evenly.
  7. Reserve the other half of the tomato sauce. Bake for 1 hour, or until the internal temperature reads 160˚F/70˚C when poked with a meat thermometer.
  8. When the meatloaf is ready, heat your tomato sauce in the microwave or on a skillet, and drizzle on top of your meatloaf.
  9. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley. Serve with your favorite sides. (We used mashed sweet potatoes and asparagus.)
  10. Enjoy!
