Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion for 8-10 mins until softened. Add the garlic, Worcestershire sauce and 2 tsp tomato purée, and stir until combined. Set aside to cool.

  2. Put the turkey mince, egg, breadcrumbs and cooled onion mix in a large bowl and season well. Mix everything to combine, then shape into a rectangular loaf and place in a large roasting tin. Spread 2 tbsp barbecue sauce over the meatloaf and bake for 30 mins.

  3. Meanwhile, drain 1 can of beans only, then pour both cans into a large bowl. Add the remaining barbecue sauce and tomato purée. Season and set aside.

  4. When the meatloaf has had its initial cooking time, scatter the beans around the outside and bake for 15 mins more until the meatloaf is cooked through and the beans are piping hot. Scatter over the parsley and serve the meatloaf in slices.

Wanted to try this as we don't eat turkey nearly enough and wanted a cheap, lower fat meal that would do the two of us for two nights. It was lovely although the turkey mince was from the freezer so it was a little wetter than it probably should be meaning that the first part of the cooking had to be done in a baking tin to hold the shape. Husband suggested that next time a chopped chilli and maybe a little cayenne pepper would lift it up a bit taste wise but it's definitely a keeper for us.

Made as I wanted a lower fat, different dish to make. All the family loved it - even my very fussy son. Used baked beans which worked well too! Really easy to do and will definitely make again!

Really enjoyed this but next time will change some of the bbq sauce in the beans for some brown sugar and honey so not so smoky tasting. Serve with Corn Bread and greens making real USA taste

This was a nice enough but I wouldn't rave about it quite as much as the other reviewers. It was certainly very easy to do and a change from chilli and the other things you usually do with mince. I didn't have the beans needed so I just used baked beans and added BBQ sauce and left out the tomato puree. It is one of those dishes that you could add more spices to or extra veg so could be quite versatile for using what's in the fridge. I made the loaf earlier in the day and left it in the fridge until dinner time so its a good one to make in advance.

Did this for Sunday lunch yesterday - loved it. My 3 year old ate it (praise indeed!!). It said to cook for the time stated or until the meatloaf was cooked through, I tested it with a meat thermometer after the 45 mins it said, and it was well under the temp for turkey, but wasn't sure if that was an accurate guide since it's not just meat. To be safe, I sliced it, laid the slices on a plate and blasted them in the microwave. Will certainly do it again.

Found the beans far too dry and overall dish a bit bland. Made a double batch of the meatloaf so second time around added some chorizo and a tin of tomatoes to the beans - far more flavour!

This went down a treat with the family, I added red peppers and mushrooms and a few fresh cherry tomatoes. We like a bit os spice so added a bit of chilli.

At what stage do you freeze this? Can I add the beans then freeze or just the meatloaf itself?

Hi Lulu, you can freeze this recipe once completed. Save the parsley for serving if you're planning on freezing the whole lot. Wherever there is a freezable symbol on our recipes, the same goes unless otherwise stated. Hope that helps!

I don't like baked beans, so I would just make the meatloaf. Any serving suggestions?

Made this today and it was very tasty. Hubby and son very happy with it. Served it with a jacket potato but I found that a big heavy. Any "goes well with tips" please?

Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. We're so glad you enjoyed the dish. You could try serving with a few slices of your favourite bread to mop up the sauce and a crisp salad like this fennel and celery salad http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2762/fennel-and-celery-salad
