This week's Cooking Corner

Hi! Today we have meatloaf on the menu! Not just any-old meatloaf either, this is a savory turkey meatloaf with a saucy glaze on top. It will disappear from the serving plate quickly so you might need to make two of them if you want any leftover for sandwiches. Sometimes I enjoy the sandwiches even more than the main course!

There are so many tasty meatloaf recipes out there, it’s fun to try different ones. Keeps things interesting and gives the family something to rave (or complain) about.

Savory Turkey Meatloaf

Cooking Spray

1    Tbsp. Extra-virgin Olive Oil

1    Large Onion (chopped)


Freshly Ground Black Pepper

3    Cloves Garlic (minced)

1    Tbsp. Fresh Rosemary (finely chopped)

1    tsp. Thyme Leaves (chopped)

2    lbs. Ground Turkey

3/4 Cup Bread Crumbs

1/2 Cup Milk

2    Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce

1    Large Egg

1/3 Cup Ketchup

2    Tbsp. Brown Sugar

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. and lightly grease a large, deep baking dish with cooking spray. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper then stir in the garlic and herbs. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and let it cool slightly.

In a large bowl, mix the ground turkey, bread crumbs, milk, Worcestershire, egg and cooked onion mixture until combined. Season with salt and pepper (remembering you added a bit of salt and pepper to the onion mixture, so be careful not to over-do it). Form into a loaf and place in the baking dish.

In a small bowl, stir the ketchup and brown sugar together until combined.

Spread this mixture over the top and sides of the meatloaf. Bake until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Serves 6.
