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 egg

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.
