1 1/2 pounds of ground turkey
1/2 cup of italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 cup of ketchup


In a medium pan saute chopped onion, garlic, salt, pepper and thyme in olive oil on medium heat until translucent. Add chicken stock, worcestershire sauce and tomato paste, mix well. Allow to cool. Combine your ground turkey in a bowl with the bread crumbs and one egg. Add onion mixture to your ground turkey once cooled. Mix well. Add your seasoned turkey to a lightly greased loaf pan.
