Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Prep time: 15 mins

Cooking time: 1 hour

Total time: 1 hr 15 mins

Makes 8 servings

2 lbs ground turkey

I cup milk

I cup rolled oats

2 eggs

1 pkg ranch dressing mix

¾ lb cheddar cheese, cut into ½ inch cubes


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, mix the turkey, milk, oats, eggs, and ranch mix by hand. Fold the cheese cubes into the mixture. Transfer to a loaf pan.
  3. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, to an internal temperature of 180 degrees F (85 degrees C).

This is in the oven right now, and mm-mmmm, does it ever smell good! J i'll update after we try it. My mom made it the other week, minus the ranch dressing mix. That's my little improv. But it works in the turkey burgers, so hey, why not in meatloaf, i figure. We shall see. Like i said, i'll update later tonight. Bon app├ętit!

UPDATE: this was AWESOME!!!!!!!! highly recommend it, give it a whirl. love it love it love it love it love it

Made this for dinner tonight. Only change I made was I made 8 small meat loaves instead of one large one. Easier for my husband to take to work, for lunch, and great to freeze, and take out one at a time to heat up. DELICIOUS!! Loved this recipe! Flavorful, moist, and I loved using the oats instead of bread crumbs, for more fiber. Thanks for sharing it!
