Turkey Meatloaf

I have not been a big fan of meatloaf. However, the stuff we had today was fabulous.

2 cups onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
1+ teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon thyme
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup chicken stock (from a box)
1 teaspoon tomato powder (from food storage - could use 1 tablespoon tomato paste)
1 pound ground turkey
1 pound mild Italian sausage
1 cup plain dry bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup each Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce , Trader Joe's Carolina Sauce (mustard-based)

Preheat oven to 325.

In medium saute pan over medium-low heat, cook the onions, olive oil, salt, pepper, & thyme until translucent, but not browned, approximately 15 minutes. Add Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, & tomato powder & mix well. Allow to cool to room temperature. I allowed the mixture to bubble for a few minutes, still on low heat.

Combine ground turkey, ground sausage, bread crumbs, eggs, & onion mixture in bowl. Mix well & shape into a loaf on an ungreased sheet pan, or in 9x13-inch pan. Spread barbecue sauces equally on the top. Bake for 1 hour 45 minutes or until thermometer registers 160* F.

Serve hot, at room temperature, or cold in a sandwich.
Heavily inspired by the Barefoot Contessa's recipe on the food network.
