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.

I liked this fine-- the flavor was quite nice (I added a little extra everything, as is my way.) But I have to give this three stars because my husband really disliked it-- he wasn't at all fond of the very soft texture. It didn't bother me too much (though it did just a little), but for him it was a deal breaker. I'd make this again just for me, but as hubby won't eat it, I'll probably pass. Thanks though! :)

I liked the idea behind this recipe, and feel that it could be a real winner with a little work. The flavours are really promising, but I found that none of them really came forward in this recipe. Next time I make it I will double the feta and onions, and add sliced black olives, or something. Also, I would saute the onions rather than just sweating them.
