Turkey Meatloaf

I made this last Sunday night, meatloaf and mashed potatoes seem like the type of thing you make on Sunday night during football.  I am pleased to report that the outcome of both the meatloaf and the football were positive, so everyone in our house was happy.  This is comfort food at it's best.

Turkey Meatloaf
recipe from Health Magazine

Olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce (I think this is the most important meatloaf ingredient)
1/3 cup chicken broth (I subbed veg because I was out, you could also just use water)
3 Tablespoons ketchup
1 - 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey (my package was 1.3 pounds, anything around there will work)
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 egg

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
Add onion and cook for about 5 minutes.
Add in garlic, salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute.
Stir in Worcestershire sauce, broth or water, and 1 Tablespoon ketchup.  Remove mixture from heat.
In a large bowl, mix turkey, breadcrumbs and egg.
When slightly cooled, add onion mixture to meat and mix well.  Using your hands works best here.
Form turkey mixture into a loaf shape and put on a baking sheet or dish covered with foil.
Brush meatloaf with remaining 2 tablespoons ketchup.
Bake for 1 hour, or until cooked through.  I checked with a meat thermometer to make sure the middle reached 170 degrees.
Let stand a few minutes before serving.
