  • Protein: 21g

  • 300g Closed Cup Mushrooms, Chopped ( I Used A Food Processor Which Was WAY Easier)

  • 1 Medium Onion, Finely Chopped

  • 2 Garlic Cloves, Grated

  • 1/2 Tsp Salt

  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Black Pepper

  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

  • 7 Tbsp Ketchup

  • 60g Bread Crumbs

  • 80ml Milk

  • 2 Large Eggs, Lightly Beaten

  • 500g Turkey Mince (I Used 7% Thigh Mince)

  • Fry Light

  • Heat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet (or 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan) lined with aluminium foil, or use a silicone baking tray/loaf tray.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened; about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute.

  • Stir in the chopped (they should be chopped into small chunks like the image below, I would use a food processor) mushrooms, a 1/2-teaspoon of salt, and a 1/4-teaspoon of pepper. Cook until the mushrooms give off their liquid and it boils away; about 10 minutes. See the image below as a guide.

  • Transfer the onions and mushrooms to a large bowl, and then stir in the Worcestershire sauce and 3 tablespoons of the ketchup. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine the breadcrumbs and milk in a small bowl.

  • Stir the breadcrumb mixture and the eggs into the mushrooms and onions. Using a fork or your hands, gently mix in the turkey, a 1/2-teaspoon of salt and a 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. The mixture will be very wet and sticky.

  • Form the meatloaf into baking tray/loaf tray. Then spread the remaining 4 tablespoons of ketchup on top.

  • Bake the meatloaf for about 50 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Serves 6 but could serve 4 if you have a hungry househould!
  • Can be frozen!
  • It’s a great lunchbox option too, you could easily meal prep 4-6 lunches for yourself.
  • Serve with mashed potato, peas, and gravy OR anything you fancy really, you could put it in a sandwich, maybe serve with rice/pasta/wedges.
