Ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray, for pan
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 pounds ground turkey (1 pound lean breast meat and 1 pound thigh meat)
  • 1/2 cup grated hard cheese, such as a Parmesan-Gouda blend
  • 1/3 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 large egg
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a standard 9-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the carrots, celery, onions and some salt and pepper; saute until just starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and stir to combine; saute until fragrant and softened, about 1 minute. Add the tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce, and cook for 1 minute more. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.

  • In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, grated cheese, breadcrumbs, thyme, sage, rosemary, egg, some salt, 2 teaspoons black pepper, and the cooled veggie mixture. Mix with your hands until well blended.

  • Fill the prepared loaf pan with the meatloaf mixture. Bake until a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf registers 170 degrees F, about 55 minutes.
