Turkey Meatloaf

This manly meatloaf is heavenly too! Men will be dreaming of DeWalt power tools, remote controls, football, etc. One secret about this meatloaf, we don't advertise it's turkey to the homegirlz; they didn't notice.

Turkey Meatloaf -

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium pan, over medium-low heat, saute 1 medium chopped vidalia onion (or yellow onion) in 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves until translucent, but not browned, about 15 minutes.

Stir in 1/3 cup of Worcestershire sauce.

3/4 chicken stock.
1-1/2 teaspoons tomato paste and mix well.

Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Combine 2 lbs. ground turkey breast, 1-1/2 cups Italian bread crumbs, 2 large eggs, and onion mixture in a large bowl. If mixture seems too moist, add a litle more bread crumbs. Mix well and shape into a rectangular loaf on an sheet pan (with at least 1 inch sides) sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Spread 3/4 cup of ketchup evenly on top. Bake for 1-1/4 hours until the internal temperature is 160 degrees F. and the meatloaf is cooked through.

Serve hot, at room temperature, or cold in a sandwich. Go and cook this and let me know how it turns out!
