Turkey Meatloaf

Here's something I never thought I'd say, but the other day I got a hankerin' for some meatloaf. Since that rarely happens to me--I'm not a huge meat person--I went with that inkling and ended up making the most moist, delicious meatloaf I've ever had! This recipe makes a lot, but you know the meal is good when you look forward to the leftovers. Twice.

Serves 5-6

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon dried rosemary
½ teaspoon dried parsley
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup tomato sauce
2 pounds ground turkey
¾ cup plain dry bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cider vinegar

1) Heat oil in a medium pan over medium-low heat. Add onions, garlic, salt, pepper, rosemary, and parsley and cook until onions are translucent.
2) Add Worcestershire sauce and tomato sauce and stir well. Pour onion mixture in a large bowl and cool in the refrigerator until it has come to room temperature.
3) While onion mixture is cooling, line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
4) When onion mixture has cooled to room temperature, add ground turkey, bread crumbs, and eggs; mix using your hands or a wooden spoon.
5) Set meat on the prepared baking sheet and shape into a loaf. Mix the glaze ingredients until combined; spread on top of meat.
6) Bake at 350 degrees for 90 minutes, or until temperature on a meat thermometer is 160 degrees and the meatloaf is cooked through in the middle. Enjoy!
