Midweek Mealtime - Italian Meatloaf

Wednesday, October 01, 2014

Some days you just want an old standby.  But some days you want an "old standby" with a little extra character.  This meatloaf fits the bill!  It's a little spicy but still warm and comforting.  It's your standard meatloaf, with a twist!


  • 2 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 2 cups fresh spinach (approximately a 5-6 oz package)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs
  • fresh basil to taste (I used almost 1/4 cup, torn)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.  I will admit, I find the easiest way to do this is to use my (clean) hands to smush (is smush a word?) everything together uniformly.
  3. Form the mixture into a loaf.  
  4. Bake on a rack on a shallow pan for 35-45 minutes.
  5. Serve with extra ketchup, if desired.
