Number of Servings: 10


    Onions, 1 medium (2-1/2" dia)-diced
    Garlic, 2 cloves minced
    Canola Oil, 1 tsp
    Salt, 0.25 tsp
    Yogurt, plain, whole milk, 0.5 cup
    Egg, fresh, 2 large
    Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard, 2 tsp
    Thyme, fresh, 2 tsp
    Lea & Perrins, Worcestershire Sauce, 2 tsp (remove)
    Hot Pepper Sauce, 0.25 tsp (remove)
    Pepper, black, 0.5 tsp (remove)
    Turkey, Ground turkey, 93% lean, 2 pounds
    Bread crumbs, fresh - 1 and 1/3 cup
    Parsley, fresh - 1/4 cup leaves, minced
    Ketchup, Heinz, 1/2 cup
    Brown Sugar, 0.25 cup, packed
    Cider Vinegar, 4 tsp


1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top; set aside. Fold a piece of heavy-duty foil into a 10 by 6-inch rectangle; set aside.
2. Combine the onion, garlic, oil and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a medium skillet. Cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, until the onion has softened, 8 to 10 minutes; set aside to cool. In a medium bowl, whisk the milk, eggs, thyme, mustard, Worcestershire, hot sauce, pepper and teaspoon salt together.
3. In a large bowl, mix the turkey, bread crumbs, parsley, cooked onion mixture, and egg mixture together with your hands until uniformly combined. Press the mixture together in a compact mass, the turn it out onto the foil rectangle. Using your hands, press the meat into and evenly thick loaf about 2 inches tall and 1 inch smaller than the foil on all sides.
4. Transfer the foil and meatloaf to the center of the prepared wire rack. Stir the ketchup, sugar and vinegar together, then brush half the mixture evenly over the meatloaf. Bake the meatloaf for 45 minutes.
5. Brush the meatloaf with the remaining ketchup glaze, and continue to bake until the center of the loaf registers 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer, about 15 to 20 minutes longer. Cool at least 20 minutes before slicing into 1-inch pieces. I refrigerated this overnight and then sliced and grilled it on my Griddler.
