Mini Turkey Meatloaf with Homemade, Low Carb Ketchup

Here is another easy recipe for everyone! These Mini Turkey Meatloaves are delicious and perfect for lunch or dinner. I even went the extra mile and made homemade, low-carb ketchup!

Ketchup is one of those things that always gets me while trying to do Ideal Protein/low-carb. I love me some ketchup…but its FULL of sugar. So, I decided to just make my own. It took me a couple tries to get the perfect blend, but I think I finally got it!

Recipe by: Jamie Boden at My Beautiful Ideal


For the Ketchup:

  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 packets of Splenda
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

For the Meatloaf:

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 oz parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3/4 cup of the Ketchup (about half of what you prepared), divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 425-degrees and prepare a baking sheet with foil and cooking spray.
  2. Next, prepare the ketchup. Whisk all the ingredients in a bowl until combined.
  3. Then, prepare the mini loaves – mix the turkey, egg, cheese, spices, and 1/2 cup of the ketchup you just prepared, with your hands, until combined.
  4. Form 4 small freeform loaves and place them evenly on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until cooked through.
  6. Remove the loaves from the oven and brush the tops with remaining 1/4 cup of ketchup.
  7. Enjoy!

Notes: Serve with whatever vegetable you are feeling that day.

Also, the loaves freeze really well. So, you could easily double the recipe and save some for later.
