Turkey Meatloaf Florentine

Submitted by: RICKIEBETH

Introduction

The cheese oozing out of the center of each slice of meatloaf will make this seem like a decadent, indulgent treat, but at only 3/4 ounce of cheese per serving, it won't bust your diet. Plus, the garlicky spinach adds a serving of veggies and a burst of green to each plate!

Ingredients

    1 10oz box of frozen spinach
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 tbsp canola oil

    1.5 pounds ground turkey (93% lean, i.e., not ground turkey breast)
    1 onion, chopped fine
    1 egg
    1/4 cup ketchup
    1 cup (approx.) unseasoned bread crumbs
    1 tsp poultry seasoning or other herbs and spices

    4 oz. shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (do not use fat free cheese, as it does not melt properly. If you use a cheese other than mozzarella, such as monterey jack or provolone, use the full-fat variety.)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Defrost spinach in the microwave. In a large frying pan, heat the canola oil and add minced garlic and drained spinach. Cook until heated through and all of the water is absorbed. Do not let the garlic brown. Set aside.


In a mixing bowl, combine onion, egg, ketchup, and any herbs or spices. Mix thoroughly. Add turkey and mix with your hands. Add enough bread crumbs to hold the mixture together, approximately 1 cup or more.


On a sheet of waxed paper or aluminum foil, spread out the turkey mixture to approximately 1 inch thick. Spread the spinach on top of it, and the shredded cheese on top of that.


Using the waxed paper or foil, roll up into a meatloaf shape. Seal the edges and ends to ensure that all of the spinach and cheese is contained in the middle of the turkey. Transfer to a baking dish or cookie sheet and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until cooked all the way through.
