Slow Cooker Turkey Meatloaf

Leave a comment

Really loving the Gracious Pantry this week!  Tonight was yummy crock pot turkey meatloaf.  Accepted and approved by the non-clean-eating family members.  You can also try it with green pepper and onions.  We added some eggs and that was also a nice addition.

Clean Eating Slow Cooker Meatloaf
(Makes 18 servings)

3 lb. lean ground turkey
1 cup whole wheat panko bread crumbs
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese (or 1/2 cup grated)
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 tbsp. onion powder
1 tbsp. garlic powder
2 medium carrots, grated
Salt to taste


Step 1 – Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well using your hands to knead.

Step 2 – Lightly spray your slow cooker with a bit of olive oil and place the meat inside, molding it into a meatloaf form. (My slow cooker was a 5 quart.)

Step 3 – Press your fingers between the meat and the edge of the slow cooker to bring the meat a finger’s width away from the side of you insert. So basically, you are creating about a 1/2 inch space around the edge of the meat so that the sides of the meatloaf don’t touch the sides of the slow cooker.

Step 4 – Cook on Low for 8-10 hours. Slice into 18 pieces and serve with sweet potatoes and a vegetable for a complete, comfort food meal.
