Turkey Meatloaf

Use ground turkey instead of beef for a leaner source of protein. Herbs and vegetables add fresh flavor, so you won’t need traditional gravy, which contains more butter and heavy cream.

Ingredients:

•   1 teaspoon olive oil
•   ½ cup minced yellow onion

•   2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried
•   1 egg
•   3 tablespoons ketchup
•   1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
•   1 pound lean ground turkey
•   ¼ cup bread crumbs

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375° F. Add oil to a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute 2-3 minutes or until soft. Add carrots and continue to saute until just soft, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat.

In a large bowl, combine thyme, egg, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce. Add ground turkey and mix thoroughly. Toss in the bread crumbs and combine with turkey mixture until incorporated. Form 4 equal-size loaves and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake until internal temperature reads 165* F (use a meat thermometer to check) and loaves are firm.
