These tasty meatloaves are just right for a busy family; serve them hot from the oven, at room temperature, or even chilled.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped

  • 1 carrot, finely chopped

  • 1 red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, finely chopped

  • 1 slice white sandwich bread

  • ¼ cup milk

  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons tomato-based chili sauce

  • 1 ¼ pounds ground turkey

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon dried sage

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, heat oil over low heat. Add onion, carrot, and bell pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 10 minutes.

  2. Transfer vegetables to a large bowl. Crumble in bread; add milk and 2 tablespoons chili sauce. Stir to combine. Cool completely.

  3. Add turkey, egg, and sage; season with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 3/4 teaspoon pepper. Using your hands, mix to combine. Divide into four equal parts. Gently shape each into a 3-by-4-by-2-inch loaf; place on a rimmed baking sheet.

  4. Brush remaining 1/4 cup chili sauce over tops, dividing equally. Bake until meatloaves are cooked through, 35 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Notes

Tomato-based chili sauce is similar to ketchup but slightly spicy; you can find it with other condiments at your grocery store.
