Turkey Meatloaf

I’m not a huge meatloaf fan but it’s my boyfriends favorite meal. I was feeling comfort food for dinner today so I decided to surprise him. 🙂 This recipe is based off of Ina Garten’s, but her recipe was way too big so I cut it in half and I STILL have leftovers! Oh well, I guess I’ll have to make meatloaf sammies this week … ;P

1.5 lb ground turkey breast
1 tablespoon good olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves (1 teaspoon if using dried)
1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup chicken stock
1 1/2 teaspoon tomato paste
3/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In a medium saute pan, over medium-low heat, add the olive oil once the pan is hot. Cook the onions, salt, pepper, and thyme until translucent. Remove from heat. Add the Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, and tomato paste. Allow to cool to room temperature.

Combine the ground turkey, bread crumbs, eggs, and onion mixture. Mix well but gently and shape into a loaf on an ungreased sheet pan. Spread the ketchup evenly on top. Bake for 45 minutes or until the internal temperature is 160 degrees F.
