Sweet Potato Turkey Meatloaf

I love meatloaf but have never thought to add sweet potato to the mix. I’m glad I did though, this stuff tastes great and adding the sweet potato just kicks up the nutrition!

Sweet Potato-Turkey Meatloaf


1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1 pound ground turkey breast
1 large egg. lightly beaten
1 medium onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1/4 cup honey barbecue sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons mustard
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (or more to taste, I use my homemade Ezekiel bread crumbs)
salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 2 quart baking dish.
  2. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the sweet potato and cook until soft, about 10 minutes. Drain the sweet potatoes and mash or whip until smooth.
  3. Mix the ground turkey together with the egg, onion, garlic, barbecue sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard and bread crumbs in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the sweet potatoes, and stir until evenly combined.
  6. If the mixture seems too wet, add more bread crumbs. Use your hands to form the turkey mixture into a loaf shape and place in the prepared baking dish.
  7. Bake 1 hour, serve warm.
