Dukan Diet Attack Phase Recipe: Turkey Meatloaf

It has been a while since I posted any recipes so I thought I’d put together a recipe post that was suitable for the Attack Phase.  When I was checking the other recipes that I’d posted I was a little surprised that I’d not put any meatloaf recipes on the site.

The recipe given below is suitable as it is for PP days but you can add some finely diced vegetables to the mixture if you will be eating it on a PV day in the Cruise Phase.  The great thing about this meatloaf recipe is that it uses the relatively inexpensive ground turkey (turkey mince) but it is also very versatile.  You can make one large meatloaf or a lot of mini meatloafs.  You can eat it hot or cold and it is a great food to pack up for your lunch.  It is also another way that you can eat part of your daily serving of oat bran.

Turkey Meatloaf

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 16 oz ground Turkey (Turkey Mince)
  • 4 tablespoons of Oat Bran
  • 1 finely diced medium-sized Onion
  • 2 tablespoons of Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste.


  1. Mix your paprika and cayenne pepper with the oat bran in a large bowl with a little salt and black pepper.
  2. Add the turkey and onion and mix well.
  3. Then add in the egg whites and balsamic vinegar and work this through the meat.
  4. You should be able to form the mixture without it coming apart. If the mixture is too wet you can add a little more oat bran or some wheat bran or if the mixture is too dry you could add a little fat free yogurt.
  5. Form your meatloaf on a non stick baking sheet or use a muffin tray to make mini meatloafs
  6. Place in a preheated oven at 350°F, 180°C or Gas Mark 4 for up to 45 minutes.  The time needed will vary according to the shape and size of your meatloaf(s).

    How much of the meatloaf can you have a day for the attack phase??

    • Amber on April 17, 2016

      Hi Melissa

      A serving is 1/4 of the recipe.

      Due to the oat bran content you could not have more.

      Best wishes

    This looks delicious. Is it really okay to have the onion during the attack phase or should I cut that part out?

    • Amber on October 19, 2015

      Hi Jayne

      Onion is definitely allowed on Attack so enjoy!

    hi amber,
    i did the dukan 2 years ago and maintained a good weight .. until this fall when my routine was upset! over the last 3.5 months i put on some serious weight. i’m having a difficult jumping back on to the dukan. do you have any suggestions for me to jump start my lack of enthusiasm?!

      Hi Amy

      I need to understand what is holding you back to be able to offer any advice. For example has the problem that caused you to regain weight been resolved? If not this might be what is preventing you restarting the Dukan or if the Attack Phase is a problem, skip it and go straight to Cruise.

    About how many calories is this recipe per serving?

    • Amber on January 18, 2013

      Hi Kristi

      I don’t know as you don’t count calories on the Dukan Diet. If you need to know the calories you can work this out using one of the calorie counting sites such as http://www.myfitnesspal.com to get the details for each of the ingredients.

      Kind regards

    Thanks for posting this great recipe. Would it work without the oat bran? i like the idea of making the oat bran toast, so i dont want to have to much oat bran.

    • Amber on March 18, 2012

      Hi Sarah

      You are also allowed 1 tablespoon of wheat bran each day so you could swap the oat bran for wheat bran in this recipe and then still be able to have the Dukan toast.

      Best wishes
