Spinach & garlic turkey meatloaf.

I thought I would do a retro-inspired dinner tonight.  Comfort food, to be exact.  We have a rushed evening and this was easy to get in the oven and have it ready for my kids to eat early, before our movie night tonight, and for hub’s to heat up later, when he gets home after work.

I had ground turkey leftover from another recipe and thought I better use it up before it went bad, which sadly happens to be too often.  So here’s what I did…


1.25 lbs lean ground turkey
2 c of organic baby spinach (raw)
8 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
2 tsp of flax seed meal
1 egg, room temperature
1/4 c of Panko breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper

Take your loaf pan and spray a nonstick spray on the inside. Mix that all together in your stand mixer with the paddle attachment.  Avoid over mixing, just mix until blended.   Pour into your prepared pan and either refrigerate until later or bake immediately.  Bake at 375 degrees for about 45-60 minutes or until it reaches 160 degrees.

Remove from the oven and cover for 10 minutes to let the juices return back to the meat.  Slice and serve.
