Sriracha Turkey Meatloaf

Spicy Turkey Meatloaf

This isn’t your grandma’s meatloaf, friends. This fresh new take is gluten-free, low FODMAP and packed with fun flavor. It’s become a real family favorite around our house. You know when you tell the kids what’s for dinner and their eyes light up? That’s what this Sriracha Turkey meatloaf does for us.

A Great Flavor Profile

The flavor profile for my Sriracha Turkey Meatloaf was inspired by a wonderful recipe from Melissa Clark’s amazing Comfort in an Instant. It’s a cookbook I keep going back to because the flavors and combinations are so fun and fresh. Even though I have to adapt most of the recipes in order to meet my family’s dietary restrictions, I still love this cookbook! Her flavor combinations just can’t be beat. One other departure I make from Melissa Clark’s version: In hers, you cook the meatloaf in the instant pot. While that does yield a wonderfully tender and juicy meatloaf, I just found it easier to make it the old fashioned way. I bake it in a loaf pan in the oven.

Flavor Without the FODMAPs

One of the tough things about eating a low FODMAP diet – at least for me – is that without garlic and onion, things can get bland pretty quickly. For years, I’ve had a “the more the better” philosophy when it comes to garlic and onion – especially garlic. Little did I know that was wreaking havoc on my eldest child’s digestive system. We’ve seen a major decrease in IBS symptoms like stomach aches and nausea since cutting out garlic and onion. But even my kiddo doesn’t want to eat bland food!

If you didn’t think you could make a meatloaf without onion and garlic, this recipe shows you how. Maybe you don’t care for cilantro? No worries. Just substitute parsley instead. If you’re not into spicy, skip the sriracha and substitute ketchup. But if you like a little heat, you will love this Sriracha Turkey Meatloaf! It’s a great go-to when eating low FODMAP has sucked all of the flavor out of your food. This one’s got some zing!

If you need more ideas for flavorful, low FODMAP dinners that the whole family can enjoy, try my TexMex Rice Bake or my BBQ Chicken Drumsticks. Like this Sriracha Turkey Meatloaf, those are comfort food recipes that will have everyone coming back for seconds.
