Turkey Mini Meatloaves with Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Turkey Mini Meatloaves with Mashed Sweet Potatoes

  Serves 6


  • 2 tablespoons olive or coconut oil
  • 1 pound cremini or white button mushrooms, very finely chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 rib celery, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, stemmed and chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 pounds ground turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons flax seeds, ground
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup ketchup (preferably the low-sugar kind), divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed into half-inch cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup


Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until very hot. Add mushrooms and cook until brown on all sides, about 6-8 minutes. Add in onion, carrot, celery and thyme, and season with salt and pepper. Cook until veggies are softened, about 3-4 minutes. Deglaze the pan with white wine and let it reduce by half. Remove from heat and let cool.

In a mixing bowl, combine turkey, panko, ground flax seeds, egg, 1/4 cup ketchup, nutmeg, salt, pepper, and the cooled mushroom mixture with your hands, but don’t overmix. Divide the meatloaf mixture into 6 equal parts and form each part into a mini meatloaf. Place the meatloaves on a parchment-lined sheet tray then brush remaining ketchup over the top of each loaf. Bake for 20-22 minutes, until meatloaf registers 160°F in the center.

While the meatloaves are baking, place sweet potatoes in cold water in a large pot. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil. Cook sweet potatoes until fork tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and return to the pot. Add buttermilk, maple syrup, salt and pepper, and mash to desired consistency.

Serve 1 mini meatloaf per person with mashed sweet potatoes alongside.
