1 Medium onion
2 Teaspoons olive oil
1 Cup chopped onion
2-1/2 Pounds GROUND TURKEY
1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 Teaspoon pepper
1/4 Teaspoon dried thyme leaves
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons ketchup
2 Large eggs, beaten
22 Saltine crackers, crushed
1/4 Cup ketchup
2 Tablespoons brown sugar 1 Tablespoon vinegar
Slice medium onion into thick slices and line bottom of crock pot with onion slices. This will make it easier to remove the loaf after cooking.
In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until softened.
Remove from skillet and in a large bowl, combine onion with remaining ingredients. Mix well.
Form into a loaf shape to fit the slow cooker. Place loaf into crock atop onion slices. Use a rubber spatula to shape and pull loaf away from the sides of the crock, allowing 1/2-inch all around the loaf.
Combine glaze ingredients and spoon overtop of loaf.
Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours or until food thermometer registers 165 degrees.
