Total Time:
Level: Easy
Serves: 8


  • 1 1/4 c. whole wheat panko
  • 1/2 c. whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 c. minced fresh parsley or cilantro
  • 1/4 c. minced fresh basil
  • 4 scallions, minced
  • 6 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1/2 medium white onion, grated
  • 1 tbsp. finely grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • pepper
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/3 c. hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp. ketchup


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Whisk together in a large bowl: panko, milk, eggs, parsley, basil, scallions, garlic, onion, ginger, sesame oil, salt, and pepper to taste. Add ground pork and turkey; stir gently to combine. Do not overwork meat.
  2. Shape meat mixture into a 12-inch-long loaf; line and spray rack (see instructions, opposite below) and place loaf on top. Flatten top and square off ends. (If making a double batch, freeze the extra one in a disposable loaf pan—it makes removal easy after thawing. When ready to eat, thaw overnight in fridge, transfer onto a lined baking sheet, then glaze and bake as instructed below.)
  3. Whisk together hoisin sauce and ketchup in a small bowl. Pour half the sauce over meatloaf; coat sides and top.
  4. Bake for 60 to 70 min, until internal temperature reads 160°F, brushing with glaze every 20 min or so. Let loaf cool for 15 min; transfer to a platter, slice, and serve.
