    So you put in a new SSD that is now blank? Just plug the Time Machine disk in and option key boot, then select the Time Machine disk to boot from. That will bring up a recovery screen. From there run Disk Utility and format the new SSD to Mac OS Extended. Then quit disk utility and click restore.
