Honey Barbecue Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

Honey Barbecue Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

Meatloaf can be pretty divisive, people either seem to love it or hate it, and as you’ve probably guessed, we are big fans. It’s such an easy meal and to me, is pure comfort food, especially when served with a big helping of mashed potatoes on the side. I always make ours with ground turkey but you could definitely substitute ground beef if that’s what you prefer. I used a slightly spicy barbecue sauce for this recipe, and we enjoyed the sweet/spicy flavor combo we had going on. The recipe only dirtied one bowl and since I always line my baking sheet with foil, clean-up was an absolute breeze. Combined with the deliciousness factor, this one is a total win all-around!

Honey Barbecue Turkey Meatloaf

adapted slightly from Fake Ginger


  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce, divided
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lb ground turkey


Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.

Add the panko breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons of the worcestershire sauce, the mustard, 1/2 cup of the barbecue sauce, 1 tablespoon of honey, the salt and pepper to a large bowl. Stir to combine. Add the ground turkey and use your hands to gently mix until just combined – do not overmix.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking sheet. Shape into a rounded loaf. Whisk the remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, 1 tablespoon honey and 2 teaspoons of worcestershire sauce in a small bowl. Pour about half of the mixture over the surface of the meatloaf and spread to coat; reserve the remainder for serving.

Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until an instant read thermometer inserted in the center registers 170 F. Let rest for 5-10 minutes, then slice and serve with reserved honey barbecue sauce.
