    Thanks so much for this, feeding the kids is always a tricky task. I used the muffin tin idea, but put whipped cauliflower on top so they looked like cupcakes. It was a huge hit for the family. Great recipe!!! - 12/16/09

    I will make it again but closer to the recipe. I opted to make it lower in sodium by not including the 1/2 tsp salt and replaced the bbq sauce with no salt added tomato sauce. - 2/26/12

    This is delicious. I used swiss cheese instead of mozzarella and didn't put any on the top, just a layer of slices in the middle on top of the spinach. I will be making this again and again. - 1/29/12

    This recipe was really good! I made a few mistakes when making it and added all the BBQ sauce to the meat. I also used fresh garlic, onion powder and substituted the oatmeal with bread crumbs. My husband loved it as well! I will be making this again! - 3/23/11

    This was so good. I didn't add or subtract anything and I loved it! Even my brothers who don't like spinach, or turkey were tricked into liking it! A wonderful low-cal recipe! I made it with green beans and brown rice. - 3/16/11

    Amazing. altered it 1/8 tsp Course sea salt, NO pepper (it causes arthritis symptoms)
    Used less BBQ sauce, added a splash of Worchestershire Sauce, Real Red & Gr Peppers diced, 4 Tb grd Flax seed (Thnx POOKIEBEAR)
    No Cheese, lots of flavor-loved it
    A hit-even 4 my non loving meatloaf eaters :)

    AWESOME. I added a bit more onion and used a honey garlic bbq sauce and it turned out great. I also used Jennie-o turkey burgers (already seasoned) instead of regular ground turkey for better flabor. Would even be great without the mozzarella (to cut calories). Highly recommended!! - 9/15/09

    This is a GREAT recipe! I used cupcake/muffin pan instead of a baking dish. Doubling the recipe yielded 24 mini loaves. Perfect for portion control! And they freeze beautifully. Grab 2, throw them in your lunch bag with a salad on the side and go! LOVE EM, LOVE EM!! Did I mention LOVE EM? :) - 3/30/09

    Great! I used kale instead of spinach and it tasted great. Very easy and simple to cook. Wouldn't say that it is quite 6 servings though. More like 5 unless they are small servings but still great. Paired it with asparagus. - 8/26/16

    For people wondering about how much cheese to use, the amount is 6 oz. I checked the additional nutritional information and it lists 1 oz of cheese per serving and there are 6 servings. - 8/11/14

    Husband is so picky that it's rare to get 5 stars out of him, but we both LOVED this. So incredibly yummy. How are we supposed to manage portion control with flavours like these?! :-) I added ground flaxseed meal (4T) and quickly sliced and froze the rest of the loaf so we wouldn't nibble it away! - 6/20/09

    I made this last night and it was a success. My boyfriend said he preferred this one over my regular meatloaf which he said he loved, but since this is a healthier version I am going to stick to this one! I added a few ingredients such as ground mustard, bell peppers, worchestershire sauce.Wonderful - 4/30/09

    I used the muffin tin also. I used half ground turkey and half ground beef (still getting use to ground turkey), and I used the whole eggs (and it worked out okay). I'm not a fan of oatmeal either and this was a nice addition. I will definitely make again using different vegetables for variety. - 9/20/19
