Way back when before I met Tai, I would cook dinner for my dad every night. When Mom moved to an adult family home, Dad was on his own. Because Dad is partially sighted cooking can be a challenge for him. I hated cooking for just myself so we had dinner together every night.
I like to make sure that my meals have a vegetable somewhere. Sometimes it's a salad or a side of green beans. But when I found this recipe, it became a staple.
I hadn't made this meatloaf since I met Tai. I don't even have the recipe. I did it by memory. Tai says I rickrolled him with this since he was expecting so much spinach. You could puree the spinach, mushrooms and onion if you didn't want to see them.
Turkey Spinach Meatloaf
1 lb ground turkey
1 8 oz package of frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 8oz can of mushroom, sliced or a cup of sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 medium onion diced
1 clove of garlic diced fine
1/4 cup of bread crumbs
salt & pepper to taste
hot sauce to taste
Saute onions, garlic, and mushrooms in a little bit of oil. Cook til onions are soft. Mix turkey, spinach, bread crumbs, egg, onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Add salt, pepper and hot sauce. I find turkey a little bland so I add a little hot sauce-about 4 dashes. Add more or less or leave it out. Once everything is mixed thoroughly, put mix into loaf pan. Cook at 400 degree oven for 35-45 minutes.
