Too warm for comfort?

We’ve had a TON of rain lately.  Yesterday ended up being a beautiful day but before that, it was doom and gloom for quite some time.  So, there was lots of comfort food being cooked up over here…dishes that wouldn’t normally be gracing our table in mid May.

I came up with this recipe several years ago and love it.  It’s much different from the way my Mom made meatloaf while we were growing up…which was also delicious, but not as healthy.  I love how moist this stays (even though it’s turkey) because of the spinach.  And the cheese really adds a little something special to it.
I’ve shared this with many friends through the years and it always gets rave reviews.  Now if I could only get Bella to eat it…

Melissa’s Turkey Meatloaf

1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
1 egg
1 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, cooked and WELL drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray, or use a 9×13 pan for a free-form meatloaf.

Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix until just combined.  Do not overhandle.  Place in pan and bake for approximately 55 minutes, or until browned.

Serves 4.

    We’ve been getting a lot of rain, too. Hopefully summer is here now! I like the use of spinach in this meatloaf. It is so colorful.
