This sheet pan meal ground turkey balsamic meatloaf recipe has become a favorite of my family’s (and mine!) because it’s super tasty and cleanup is so easy, making it a perfect weeknight dinner. You can never go wrong with a warm, comforting meal of turkey meatloaf with sweet potato fries and green beans.
I originally tasted a variation of this recipe from a meal I got from a meal kit delivery service Home Chef. I love meal delivery services (I tried 6 home meal delivery services, here’s my review), but I am always looking for ways to make recipes as easy as possible, so I took the delicious meal idea and simplified it a bit.
Meatloaf always just reminds me of home, don’t they for everyone? I love the flexibility of being able to use ground turkey or ground beef in this sheet pan balsamic meatloaf meal. I’ve made this recipe with both and can report that both ground turkey and ground beef make great meatloaves! Recipes for two of my other favorite meatloaves are below; and one uses ground beef and one ground turkey:
Making mini loaves is great for a family because each person can have their own individual loaf. For us, this recipe allows for at least one full loaf leftover. And since Ben only eats a little portion, it’s great for Nick and I to each have leftovers for lunch.
After you’ve mix the ingredients and form the mini meatloaves, just added some frozen sweet potato fries and green beans to the pan and it perfectly rounds out the meal. And the best part is, super simple cleanup! I love one pan-sheet pan meals and know you’ll love this family friendly meal!

This recipe has been on regular rotation in my household for quite a while now, and my husband is always excited when I tell him this is on the menu for dinner. It is delicious, healthy, and super easy to make even on nights when I feel too tired to cook.
Just noticed I left a similar review last year 😅 – that’s how good this is!
best comment ever!!!! thank you!!!
Thank you so much for the kind feedback, this makes me so happy to hear – it also may be one of my all time favorite recipes too because all the kids eat some part of it lol!
We found the meatloaf to be a little dry. Next time I will add some onion, an egg and perhaps a little milk.
Thank you for your feedback, so sorry you found it a little dry. I definitely think an egg and a little milk would make it more juicy.

I’ve made this before and am including it in next week’s menu. The recipe is extremely easy, relatively healthy, and very tasty. Definitely one to add to the rotation!
Oh my goodness, THANK YOU so much for the wonderful feedback, so happy to hear this!
Yum! Yum! Yum! I made this with grass-fed ground beef, added an egg and chili powder, and skipped the sides (quarantine cooking). Instead, I made it in a cast iron skillet and used the drippings for gravy. Thanks for sharing!
