  • large bowls
  • mixing bowl
  • loaf pan
  • knife
  • Chopping board


  • 1/4 teaspoon of dried oregano adding a hint of Mediterranean flair and complexity to the overall flavor profile.
  • 1/2 tablespoon of tangy and robust Dijon mustard lending a zesty kick and enhancing the overall taste profile of the dish.
  • 1 celery stalk finely diced, offering a refreshing and crunchy texture that complements the other ingredients.
  • 1/2 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce infusing a savory and umami depth of flavor that complements the turkey perfectly.
  • 3/4 pound of lean and flavorful ground turkey providing a healthier alternative to beef while still delivering a satisfying protein source.
  • 1/2 medium zucchini grated or finely chopped, contributing moisture and adding a subtle vegetable sweetness to the turkey mixture.
  • A pinch of salt and black pepper allowing you to season the meatballs to your liking, bringing out the flavors and enhancing the taste experience.
  • 1/4 teaspoon of dried thyme infusing a subtle earthiness and herbaceous aroma to the meatballs.
  • 2 tablespoons of milk creating a moist and tender texture in the turkey meatballs, ensuring they are juicy and flavorful.
  • 1 garlic clove minced, adding a fragrant and pungent note that elevates the taste of the meatballs.
  • 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs adding a subtle crunch and helping to bind the ingredients together, resulting in a moist and tender texture.
  • 1/2 medium onion finely diced, providing a savory and aromatic base that enhances the overall flavor profile.
  • 1 medium carrot grated or finely chopped, supplying natural sweetness and a vibrant color to the dish.

For the tomato glaze:

  • 1/2 tablespoon of brown sugar bringing a caramel-like sweetness that creates a luscious and glossy glaze for the meatballs.
  • 1/2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar adding a delightful tang and a touch of acidity that balances the sweetness of the ketchup.
  • 1/4 cup of rich and tangy ketchup providing a sweet and savory base for the glaze.


  • To begin with, preheat your oven to 350°F and lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, zucchini, onion, milk, garlic cloves, carrots, celery stalks, thyme, and oregano together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Use your hands to mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Transfer the mixture to the prepared loaf pan and shape it into a loaf.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the ketchup, balsamic vinegar, and brown sugar for the tomato glaze. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours or until cooked through.
  • Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and then pour the tomato glaze over the meatloaf. Spread it evenly and serve.


  • Make sure to mix all the ingredients together well before transferring it into a loaf pan. This will ensure that every bite has an even amount of flavor.
  • Let the meatloaf rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. This will allow the juices to redistribute and produce a juicy, flavorful dish.
  • Feel free to experiment with different herbs and spices. You can also add other vegetables or cheeses like feta cheese for extra flavor.
