I can't make this enough - last time I had to bump it up to four pounds of meat to satisfy the crowd! I've made it with beef and chicken too, but turkey is my fave. —Erin Jeanne McDowell

  • Serves 4
  • Meatloaf
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne, or more to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs, or more as needed
  • Spicy Sriracha Glaze
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha (or more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
In This Recipe
  1. Combine all ingredients for the meatloaf in a large bowl. Mix just to combine. If the mixture feels too wet, add more breadcrumbs.
  2. Form the mixture into a loaf on a foil lined baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the glaze until well combined.
  3. Brush the glaze all over the loaf (this is why I don't use a loaf pan, so that you can get maximum glaze action).
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven until cooked through, about 35-45 minutes. Remove from the oven and baste occasionally. If you like, you can run the finished loaf under the broiler and the glaze will form a bit of a crust.

I always have three kinds of hot sauce in my purse. I have a soft spot for making people their favorite dessert, especially if it's wrapped in a pastry crust. My newest cookbook, The Book on Pie, is out on November 10th, 2020.
