Servings 8


  • 2 lbs 93/7 ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 56 g plain bread crumbs
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 200 g onion diced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1-2 tsp thyme fresh
  • 1/2 cup organic tomato ketchup


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Heat some olive oil spray in a medium sauté pan. Add the onions, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent but not brown.
  • Turn off the heat, add the Worcestershire sauce, and chicken stock. Allow to cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, onion mixture, bread crumbs, and egg, and mix lightly. Do not over mix! Shape the mixture into a rectangular loaf on a sheet pan covered with parchment paper or place into a bread pan.
  • Spread the ketchup evenly on top.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature is 160 degrees F and the meat loaf is cooked through. (A pan of hot water in the oven, under the meat loaf, will keep the top from cracking.) Serve hot.
