Yet another Ina recipe. But, I just love that woman & everything I have ever made, from any of her cookbooks, has been awesome.
Her Turkey Meatloaf is a standby in our house. Both the bozos absolutely love it!
The proportions she gives make a huge meatloaf. So, I always halve it.
You will need 2 1/2 pounds of ground turkey breast, 2 eggs, some ketchup, chicken stock, an onion, some fresh thyme, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, and breadcrumbs.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Chop 1 large onion. I try to chop it pretty small, so that the bozos do not detect any onion pieces in their meatloaf.
Then heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a saute pan, over medium-low heat.
Add the onions, along with about a teaspoon of fresh thyme leaves,
a teaspoon of kosher salt, and some freshly ground pepper.
Saute for 15 minutes. You want the onions to be soft, but not browned.
Then turn off the heat and add 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce, a teaspoon of tomato paste, and 1/3 cup of chicken stock.
Stir to combine and let the mixture cool to room temperature.
Once the mixture is cooled, place the ground turkey breast in a large mixing bowl. Add 3/4 cup of plain breadcrumbs,
2 eggs, and the onion mixture. Gently mix everything together until it's well combined,
and form evenly into a loaf pan, that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Or, form a loaf on a baking sheet.
Spread 1/2 cup of ketchup over the top, and bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
Slice and serve.
