Recipe Ingredients for Blue Ribbon Meatloaf

2 teaspoons canola oil
2 cups (1 medium) sweet onion, chopped
12 ounce beer, dark or amber
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon dry mustard
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 Freshly ground pepper to taste
14 1/5 oz cooked 90% lean ground beef, net from 20 oz fresh (23566)
14 1/2 oz ground turkey, net from 20 oz fresh (5306)
3 slices whole-wheat bread, prepared for fresh crumbs (see Tip)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 egg white, lightly beaten

Recipe Directions for Blue Ribbon Meatloaf

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until translucent and starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Pour in beer and increase heat to high. Bring to a vigorous boil; cook until the liquid is quite syrupy and the mixture reduces to about 3/4 cup, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in thyme, dry mustard, salt and pepper. Let cool for 10 minutes.

  3. Add beef, turkey, breadcrumbs, parsley, beaten egg and egg white to the onion mixture. Mix thoroughly with clean hands and transfer to the prepared pan.

  4. Bake the meatloaf until an instant-read thermometer registers 160° when inserted into the center, about 1 hour 20 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes; drain accumulated liquid from the pan and slice. Serve hot or cold or in a sandwich.

  5. TIP: To make fresh breadcrumbs: Trim crusts from firm sandwich bread. Tear bread into pieces and process in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. One slice of bread makes about 1/3 cup crumbs.
