Quick and Easy Dinner

If you are like me, you don’t have a lot of time to make a healthy dinner during the week.  And, I get a little tired of veggie burgers (although I do love those Dr. Praegers California Burgers…yum!).  I found this simple recipe in a fitness magazine.  It was listed in a meal plan and perfect for those evenings where you want something homemade, but quick…like a cold spring Friday.

 

Mediterranean Turkey Meat Loaf

1 1b lean ground turkey

2 eggs (I used 1 egg and 1 egg white which was more than enough)

2 oz reduced fat feta

3/4 cup chopped baby spinach (I used closer to 1 cup)

1/3 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup whole-grain breadcrumbs (or panko)

1 chopped garlic clove

1/2 tsp each of ground coriander, cumin, and black pepper

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Form into a loaf.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes (until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees).

Yup…it’s that simple!!!  I ate mine with a sweet potato and veggies. The BOY really enjoyed the dish and even ate leftovers!  I think this would make a tasty turkey burger as well.  It reminded me of the Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers that I love during grill season.

Have a great 3 day weekend!!!
