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 light-dark mix)
1 1/4 cup shredded Gruyere, Swiss cheese, or Provolone, divided
2 Tablespoons minced fresh thyme or 2 teaspoona dried thyme
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Few drops 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. Cool to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl combine the onions, ground turkey, egg, 1/2 cup of the cheese, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce.
Place in 1 large or 2 small loaf pans. Bake large pan 50-60 minutes, small pans 30-40 minutes or until internal temp is 160 degrees.
Sprinkle remaining 3/4 cup cheese over the top and broil until melted and bubbly.
Makes 8 servings.
