How To Make Turkey Meatloaf
- Put 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet. Add the chopped onion and cook over medium heat until it is translucent. Add the garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes, then season with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper.
- Now add the carrot and the Worcestershire sauce, then cook until softened.
- Pour in the tomato paste, 1/3 cup of ketchup, chicken stock, oregano, parsley and thyme. Give it a good mix to make sure everything is evenly coated.
- Transfer everything in the skillet to a large bowl to cool for a few minutes. Add the turkey, eggs, breadcrumbs and onion/ herb mixture to the bowl.
- Give everything a good mix. The best way to do it is with clean hands.
- Shape into a rectangular loaf on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Brush with the remaining ketchup and place in the oven. Put a pan with water on the bottom rack to help prevent cracking. Bake for about 50 minutes at 375 degrees or until internal temperature is registered at 170F. When the meatloaf is finished, garnish it with parsley and enjoy!
