I was tired of ground turkey tasting so bland. I decided to infuse the meat with flavor; and this method of cooked veggies, in this case, onions, added moisture and tons of flavor!

How to Make French Onion Turkey Meatloaf


  1. Heat oil in medium pan. To hot pan, add chopped onions, 1 tsp. sea salt and pepper to taste. Saute onions until they start to get golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add minced garlic. Continue cooking onions for another 1 or 2 minutes until you can start smelling the garlic.
  2. Add Worcestershire sauce, thyme and continue to cook onion mixture until onions are very soft. If mixture gets to thick, add a little water. You don't want all the sauce to cook out.
  3. When onion mixture is done. Tip into a large mixing bowl and let cool.
  4. Add turkey meat and mix well with onion mixture. Add egg and mix well. Add 1 tsp. sea salt. Turkey mixture will be rather wet. Add enough bread crumbs to pull it together. It may take a little more or a little less. If you feel you added too much bread crumbs, you can loosen it up with a little milk.
  5. Put turkey mixture into a loaf pan and bake one hour at 375 degrees. Make sure internal temperature is 165 degrees. Use a meat thermometer. (Very important)
  6. Let meat loaf rest 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. Refrigerate left overs for amazing sandwiches!!
