How to Make Smoked Turkey Meatloaf

by MJ 13

This recipe works well in the oven or smoker. It's savory and tastes great alone, as a sandwich, or with rice or pasta.


  • One large red onion
  • Bell peppers (any variety)
  • Ground turkey
  • Minced garlic
  • Salt (kosher or sea)
  • Black pepper
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • White wine or beer or brandy
  • Two eggs
  • Bread crumbs
  • Oregano
  • Yellow mustard
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Finely chop onions and peppers and garlic

    Step 2

    Place chopped veggies in mixing bowl

    Step 3

    Pour a glass of chianti and enjoy :)

    Step 4

    To save time it's fine to use already minced garlic. The flavor is still excellent, and your fingers won't smell for days after

    Step 5

    Mix vegetables together prior to adding remaining ingredients

    Step 6

    If you don't have breadcrumbs just chop up some bread...doesn't matter which type

    Step 7

    Add breadcrumbs, eggs, and meat in bowl and mix well.

    Step 8

    Now to season--sprinkle half of seasonings & mustard (enough to cover visible meat) then stir (think of folding) well. Repeat the seasoning process. In this way the entire batch is well seasoned.

    Step 9

    Pour mixture into baking pan and let sit for a few minutes

    Step 10

    Turn on smoker or pre-heat oven to 350 (Fahrenheit) if you do not have a meat smoker.

    Step 11

    Place meatloaf in smoker or oven. As you see there is more room. See my guide on smoked prawns to see what I did and what you can do with the space.

    Step 12

    Check on meatloaf - the liquid is the fat melting from the ground turkey. It should be smelling pretty good by now.

    Step 13

    Et voila! Remove from smoker and let stand 5-10 minutes. Enjoy a savory dish that works brand new and as leftovers
