2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups finely chopped onions
1 cup finely chopped green peppers
4 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 pounds ground turkey
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Juice of 1/2 medium lemon
1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried savory
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup coarse fresh breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, then the onions and peppers. Sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté another minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Preheat oven to 375° F. Crack the eggs into a large bowl and beat slightly with a whisk. Add the milk, Worcestershire sauce and lemon. Whisk again to combine. Stir in the cooled onions and peppers, sage, thyme, savory, cheese and breadcrumbs. Add the turkey, salt and pepper; mix gently with hands until well-combined. (If you want to taste for seasoning, take a small portion and cook thoroughly, either in the microwave or in a small skillet.) Form into a loaf. Place on a baking sheet or large casserole with shallow sides. Bake until an internal temperature of 160°, about 1 hour. Remove from oven and let rest about 10 minutes before slicing and serving. This is great hot, room temperature or cold.
