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 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
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.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the onions, ground turkey, egg, and 1/2 cup of the cheese, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce.
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.)
Sprinkle remaining 3/4 cupcheese over the top and broil for 2 minutes, until melted.
