We love meatloaf for a hearty meal, so I wanted to share a yummy recipe I recently made. I used ground turkey and added spinach to make a healthier version of traditional ground beef meatloaf. When I put dinner on the table, I thought my son would immediately see green, ask what was in the middle, and be hesitant to take a bite. However, he loved how it smelled and said it looked really good, no questions asked. I knew my daughter would be just fine with anything green in her dinner since vegetables, including asparagus and green beans, are her absolute favorite! We really enjoyed this turkey meatloaf and my son ate two helpings. It was a different twist on meatloaf and it turned out amazing! If you have a child (or boyfriend or husband) that is not quite willing to eat vegetables, this is a good way to get them eating some healthy greens!
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
- Defrost the frozen spinach in the microwave and squeeze out all of the excess liquid (about 5 minutes)
- In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, spinach, milk, bread crumbs, onion soup mix, 1 1/2 cups colby cheese, egg, worcestershire, red pepper, garlic powder, salt, and pepper
- Mix everything together until well combined
- Spray an 8x8 glass pan with Pam (I used this pan instead of a loaf pan and it worked perfectly)
- Put the turkey mixture in the pan
- Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of colby on top of the meatloaf
- Pour the tomato sauce on top of the cheese
- Sprinkle the diced onion on top of the tomato sauce
- Bake for 1 hour
- Let it cool for 10 minutes before cutting
