Recipe Ingredient Details:
1/2 large onion
3 lagre cloves garlic
1/2 cup pitted Greek olives
1/2 cup Greek-style feta cheese
11⁄4 pounds lean ground turkey breast
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar (rinsed and drained)
1/2 cup bread crumbs ((fresh or dried))
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 425 ̊. In a food processor, combine onion, garlic, olives, and feta; pulse until roughly chopped (not puréed). In a large mixing bowl, combine onion mixture with turkey, oregano, Worcestershire, vinegar, bread crumbs, and egg. Use hands to mix well but do not compact tightly.
Divide meat into four equal portions. Mold each into a mini- meatloaf and set on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 20–25 minutes, until a meat thermometer reads 165 ̊.
