Turkey & Spinach Meatloaf

My good friend Callie has recently been placed on bed rest until her baby boy comes, and I had planned to go over last night to help her make some freezer meals for post baby but since she was relegated to the couch, I made a few at home and brought them over!

One of the meals was a meatloaf that sounded so good, I made it for Tyge and myself for dinner as well and served it with roasted squash and green beans. It's been awhile since I've cooked and blogged a good meal, so I wasn't in the habit of snapping photos and totally forgot, until my plate was licked clean. Oops. Anyway, here's the recipe - you can imagine how good it looked and how much better it tasted!

Turkey & Spinach Meatloaf
from A Life To Bragg About

  • 1 lb. turkey
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • EVOO
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs (I used a mix of panko and whole wheat)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 1 Tbps. pepper
  • 1 Tbps. oregano
  • 2 Tbps. Worcestershire
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (I used less)
  • 2 Tbsps. hot sauce of choice
  1. Saute spinach, onion, and garlic together in EVOO and set aside.
  2. Mix turkey, breadcrumbs, egg, spices, Worcestershire, and parm together. Add the spinach mixture. Form into meatloaf pan.
  3. Mix tomato sauce, brown sugar, and hot sauce together and smother top of meatloaf with sauce.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until cooked throughout.
