    Great recipe! I used a 12 oz bag of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to death. I chopped baby carrots in the food processor into tiny pieces, then added all the other ingredients except the turkey and pulsed it all into a rough mash. I then mixed the mash with the turkey in a bowl. I think this made for a more evenly textured meatloaf. Thanks for this recipe, I can't wait to make it again. So easy, and low in calories for a large serving.

    Best meatloaf EVER! Hands Down! :) So glad I came across this recipe, even our two year old loves this and our friends said it was the best meatloaf they had ever had! This recipe is a keeper.

    This is a Quaker Oats recipe and I have made it for years! It is delicious and it really stretches your meat. Not for anyone who doesn't like veggies! Dancer, thanks for the post! Now I can add it to my cookbook and always have it at hand!!

    To add more flavor, I used 1lb of Italian style ground turkey and 1/2 lb of turkey sausage.

    This was a great recipe, and super healthy. I didn't have any carrots, so I doubled the onion. I also added a bit of tomato paste and parmesan cheese. Served it with asparagus and couscous, DELISH. Even my husband enjoyed it, after adding more salt, of course.
