Here’s what may be my new go-to turkey meatloaf recipe. It’s moist, simple, and uses mostly ingredients in your fridge or pantry. It’s been adapted from Ina Garten.
Here’s what you need:
1-2 large yellow onions, finely diced or chopped in a food processor
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves (or 1 teaspoon dried)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1/2 cup water
1 boullion cube
2 teaspoons tomato paste
2 pounds ground turkey
1 cup breadcrumbs
2 eggs, beaten
ketchup to cover the top
Here’s what you do:
1. Heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, salt, and thyme to the pan, and decrease heat to medium-low. Cook the onion for about 15 minutes.
2. Add the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, mustard, water, bouillon cube and tomato paste to the onion mixture. Mix well and turn off the heat.
3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
4. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, breadcrumbs, and eggs.
5. Mix the onion mixture into the turkey mixture. Combine well.
6. Grease a large piece of foil on top of a large baking sheet. Form the turkey mixture into a large meatloaf. Cover the top with ketchup.
7. Bake for about an hour and a half, until the turkey is cooked through.
