Sheet Pan Mini Turkey-Apple Meatloaves

Sheet Pan Mini Turkey-Apple Meatloaves

I’m all about the sheet pan meals this week. Three different versions went down in my kitchen over the weekend, and they all featured turkey in some way! Why, you ask? Because turkey was hugely on sale at my local grocery store last week! I don’t know why, but I’m not complaining! So, I got creative and the first recipe I’m going to feature with my new-found affinity to all things turkey, is Sheet Pan Mini Turkey-Apple Meatloaves! Because, why not? 

We’re leaving on vacation next week and before I leave to go someplace, I usually try to empty out the refrigerator and freezer. Most definitely, getting rid of anything that won’t last over the week to 10 days that we’re usually gone is a priority. Because reducing the amount of food waste we tend to create has been a priority for me this year. It’s on my list of New Year’s goals.

So, this week, I’m wanting to use up all the potatoes, sweet potatoes, and onions I have in bins in the refrigerator. What better way to use up those root vegetables than in a bake? I also had a couple of green apples so in they went! Introducing, turkey-apple meatloaf! SO simple and easy, as all sheet-pan meals ought to be. These meatloaves are more like oversize meatballs 🙂

I basted the meatloaves with a sugar-free barbecue sauce from Primal Kitchen. I believe they’re one of the few bottled barbecue sauces on the market that are Whole30 approved. Oh, and by the way, this recipe is Whole30! Woohoo! Add this to your next Whole30 meal plan. It’s great for meal prep too. I packaged up three servings to take with me for lunches this week. These Sheet Pan Mini Turkey-Apple Meatloaves are sure to be a hit in your household!

Later on this week, I’ll also be making a Honey-Garlic Turkey Breast sheet pan meal and a turkey taco bake so be on the lookout for those! They’ll all be Whole30 approved as well.
