  • 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 0 1/2 cup, chopped Onions
  • 0 1/2 cup, chopped Green Peppers
  • 2 clove Garlic
  • 2 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
  • 1 tsp, ground Thyme (Dried)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 0 1/2 cup Tomato Sauce
  • 12 oz Ground Turkey
  • 8 oz Turkey Sausage
  • 1 large Egg (Whole)
  • 3 cup Cauliflower


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.  Use a loaf pan with a meatloaf insert or prepare a sheet pan with aluminum foil.  Set aside.  
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet with oil over medium high heat.  Mince the onion and garlic, chop the green pepper and the celery then sauté them with the thyme; seasoning with salt and freshly ground black pepper until softened.  Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Mix together the cooled vegetable mixture with the tomato sauce, ground turkey, turkey sausage and egg until thoroughly combined. 
  4. Bake for 1 hour or until the juices run clear and it is cooked through.
  5. While it is baking, make the cauliflower mash by boiling the cauliflower for 10 minutes (or until very soft) in salted water.  Mash with a fork and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Keep warm until ready to serve with the meatloaf.

Cooking Tip

If you're using a loaf pan, leave 1/4-1/2 inch of space at one of the short sides; this makes it easier to see that the juices are clear when the meatloaf is done cooking.
