Turkey Meatloaf

This recipe is adapted from the Barefoot Contessa. I made it earlier in the day and put it in the fridge on the baking sheet then took it out right before I had to cook it. It was served with steamed broccoli and roasted carrots.

2 lb. ground turkey (bought 1 package of breast meat and 1 of thighs)
1 small onion
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1/4 chicken broth
1 fresh thyme sprig
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp tomato paste
1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs
1 egg
1/4 cup ketchup

Preheat oven 325. In a saute pan, cook onions, olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper until onions are translucent but not browned. Add worcestershire, chicken broth, tomato paste and mix well. Allow to cool to room temperature. Combine ground turkey, bread crumbs, eggs and onion mixture in a large bowl. Mix well (hands work best) and shape into a loaf on a ungreased baking sheet. Spread ketchup evenly on top. Bake for 1- 1 1/2 hour until internal temp is 160.
