French Onion Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

Makes 8 servings


  • 2 medium sweet onions, diced (I prefer sweet, but yellow is fine)
  • 2 teaspoons butter or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 20-ounce pkg ground turkey (I like dark-light mix)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Gruyere, Swiss, or Provolone cheese, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons minced fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Few drops of hot pepper sauce


  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add onions, sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir to coat.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until deep brown; about 45 min to 1 hour. Set aside and allow to cool down to warm before adding to the turkey mixture.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the onions, ground turkey, egg, and 1/2 cup of the cheese, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce.
  4. Place in 1 large or 2 mini loaf pans. Bake large pan 50-55 minutes, small pans 30-35 minutes or until internal temp is 160 degrees. (Will continue to cook while broiling.)
  5. Sprinkle remaining 3/4 cup cheese over the top and broil for 2 minutes,  until melted.
