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!!!
