Greek turkey meatloaf.

I love this meatloaf recipe.  My grandmother used to make it when I was very young.  She would sun-dry her own garden tomatoes outdoors and can them.  They were so flavorful.  She didn’t use feta cheese but I’ve adapted this recipe to suit my family today.  I still think it holds a great representation of the original 🙂

Ingredients:

1 lb of white meat ground turkey
1/2 c seasoned panko bread crumbs
1/3 c fresh parsley or 2 tbl of dried
1/2 c of sun dried tomatoes packed in oil
4 garlic cloves, chopped
2 eggs
1/2 c crumbled feta cheese
1/4 c of olive oil
1 tsp of Greek Oregano
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

In your mixing bowl with the paddle attached, blend all of the ingredients together.  Avoid over-mixing.  Blend until incorporated.  Then take your loaf pan and spray it with a non stick oil spray or your mister.  Pour the mixture into you pan and spread evenly.  Bake at 350 degrees until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.  I normally bake it for about an hour (I like it with a bit of a crust on it).

Remove from the oven, I drain off the fat if any has collected and tent it with foil for 8-10 minutes.  Then slice and serve.
