  • 2 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 onion, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ cup plus 4 Tbsp. ketchup, divided
  • 3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, divided
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a loaf pan with cooking spray or rub it with cooking oil.
  2. Combine ground turkey, panko breadcrumbs, grated onion, egg, garlic, 4 tablespoons of the ketchup, 2 tablespoons of the Worcestershire sauce, thyme, and oregano in a large bowl. Mix with your hands until well combined but don’t overmix as that can make it tough. Shape into a loaf shape.
  3. Transfer to your greased loaf pan and smooth out the edges so the top is flat and the surface is even.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ½ cup ketchup, brown sugar, red wine vinegar, and remaining tablespoon of Worcestershire. Pour half over top of the turkey meatloaf. Bake for 45 minutes.
  5. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and pour the remaining glaze over it. Increase the oven temperature to 400°F. Bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from the oven to cool to help it set for 10 minutes.
  6. Turn onto a long plate and slice to serve.
