Servings 6 servings


  • 1 1/2 lb. Kosher ground white meat turkey
  • 1/2 lb. Kosher ground dark meat turkey
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp. worchestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1-2 tbsp. oil
  • 2 tbsp. ketchup divided
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • water


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Add 1 tbsp. oil to a small skillet and saute the onions for about a minute or two. Add the garlic and stir. When the onions are softened (be careful to not burn the garlic), remove from the stove. Do not discard any of the oil left in the pan. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the egg, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, grated carrot, parsley, 1 tbsp. ketchup, and the onion mixture. Also add any oil that may be left in the pan. Mix together until well combined. Add the ground turkey and 1/4 cup water and gently combine until well-blended.
  3. Put the turkey mixture into a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Spread the rest of the ketchup on top. You might need more ketchup if so, add a little more. Drizzle the remaining 1 tbs. of oil over the ketchup. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees. Bake for 1 hour and ten minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and let rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.
