Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with parchment paper or foil; if using foil, coat with cooking spray. Set pan aside. In a large bowl beat egg whites with a fork. Stir in mushrooms, rolled oats, dried tomatoes, onion, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the pepper. Add ground turkey; mix well.

  • Divide meat mixture into four equal portions. Shape each portion into a 4-inch oval that is about 2 1/2 inches wide in the center. Place in the prepared baking pan, leaving 2 inches between ovals.

  • Bake 20 minutes or until done.*

  • Meanwhile, for gremolata, in a small bowl combine parsley, walnuts, oil, lemon peel, lemon juice, and the 1/8 teaspoon salt. To serve, transfer each meat loaf to a serving plate. Top evenly with parsley mixture.


The internal color of meat loaf is not a reliable doneness indicator. A turkey loaf cooked to 165°F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a meat loaf, insert an instant-read thermometer into the center of loaf.


To toast whole nuts or large pieces, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
