Recipe by HappyMommy1422
This is a nice substitute for regular meatloaf. We're not big fans of traditional meatloaf but we really like this dish. I've served it with a Greek salad, marinated olives and bread. From an AP food story in the newspaper which said the recipe was developed by the Quaker Oat Company.

I like this a lot. The last time I made it was short on the regular ground turkey so I added 2 turkey Italian sausages to the mix. I just mash it all together instead of having the spinach in the middle. I like that it's not swimming in grease when it's done cooking. The nutritional analysis makes it a winner, too.
