Turkey and Veggie Meatloaf

Submitted by: BRIDGETMCL

Introduction

This is the Barefoot Contessa's meatloaf recipe, but I punched it up by adding extra veggies (spinach and carrots), and lowered the fat content by using ground turkey instead of ground chuck.

Ingredients

    * 1 tablespoon good olive oil
    * 3 cups chopped yellow onions (3 onions)
    * 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
    * 2 teaspoons kosher salt
    * 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    * 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    * 1/3 cup canned chicken stock or broth
    * 1 tablespoon tomato paste
    * 2 pounds lean ground turkey
    * 1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs (recommended: Progresso)
    * 2 extra-large eggs, beaten
    * 1/2 cup ketchup (recommended: Heinz)
    * 1/2 cup carrots, chopped
    *1 cup spinach (fresh or frozen)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a medium saute pan. Add the onions, carrots, spinach, 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. Off the heat, add the Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, and tomato paste. Allow to cool slightly. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, onion mixture, bread crumbs, and eggs, and mix lightly with a fork. Don't mash or the meatloaf will be dense. Divide the mixture into 7 (8 to 10-ounce) portions and shape each portion into a small loaf on a sheet pan. Spread about a tablespoon of ketchup on the top of each portion. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the internal temperature is 155 to 160 degrees F and the meat loaves are cooked through. Serve hot.
