Weight Watchers Turkey Meatloaf

I love meatloaf and wanted to do a bit of a makeover to have a healthy and moist meatloaf! This turkey meatloaf is 6-7 points on Weight Watchers for a very thick slice.

I like my meatloaf to be light and adding vegetables does that - so I loaded up on peppers and onions. Then served with a side of my air fryer sweet potato fries for a healthy dinner. 

How do you make Weight Watchers Turkey Meatloaf?

I tried counted out the points for this Weight Watchers Meatloaf and tried it a couple of ways. You can make it with all turkey if you like - but I went with a combo of turkey and ground pork. Pork is surprisingly lean and adds a lot of flavor! 

From there - it's pretty much like any meatloaf - put it all in a bowl - mix it together with your hands - and into the oven. 

If you don't like some crunch - you can saute your vegetables first. I did not - I like the crunch. 



To make it Weight Watchers friendly - I really avoided additional fat. I mixed oats with skim milk to act as a binding agent to keep it all together. This is a bit of a "looser" meatloaf - so it's not near as heavy and dense as you might normally think of meatloaf. 

In terms of points for this WW Meatloaf Recipe - if you follow my recipe and use turkey and pork - it's 7 points per slice for Weight Watchers Smart Points or 6 points for Points Plus. If you go with just ground turkey - it's 5 for Smart Points and 4 for Points Plus. 

When it's done - be sure to use a meat thermometer and make sure it's 160 degrees. After taking it out of the oven - let it rest for 10 minutes while you get the rest of the items on the table. 

I'm also always down for a meatloaf sandwich! If you're looking for side dishes for your weight watchers turkey meatloaf - I've got you covered. The air fryer is going to be your best bet - you could try Roasted Cauliflower or Air Fryer Asparagus. Meatloaf is a bit of a comfort food - you could also have some Homemade Creamed Corn (so much better than canned). And last - but certainly not least - you can't go wrong with a big ol' Olive Garden Salad
