These healthier little loaves are made with lean ground turkey, but you can substitute another lean ground meat if needed.
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8 servings (about 3 cups gravy)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 pounds 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup unsweetened plain dairy-free milk beverage
  • ½ cup whole wheat or gluten-free panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cups unsalted chicken stock
  • 3 tablespoons whole wheat flour or all-purpose gluten-free flour
  • ¼ cup plain unsweetened dairy-free yogurt or dairy-free sour cream
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F, and line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk the egg in a large bowl. Gently mix in the turkey, onion, milk beverage, breadcrumbs, pumpkin pie spice, and ½ teaspoon salt.
  3. Form the turkey mixture into 8 (4 x 2½-inch) loaves and place them on your prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes or until the internal temperature of the mini turkey loaves reaches 165°F.
  5. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together the stock and flour. Add the slurry to your skillet and cook 3 minutes or until thickened, whisking occasionally. Whisk in the yogurt or sour cream alternative, pepper, and remaining ½ teaspoon salt.
  7. Serve the loaves topped with the gravy sprinkled with parsley.
Chef Tip: To freeze loaves, prepare recipe through step 2, but do not bake; freeze 2 hours or until frozen. Wrap loaves tightly with plastic wrap and freeze in freezer-safe zip-top plastic bags up to 3 months. Thaw loaves in the refrigerator overnight then bake on a parchment-lined rimmed baking pan at 350°F for 40 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Proceed with step 3 to prepare gravy.
