Turkey, Feta & Sun-Dried Tomato Meatloaf

January 20, 2012

I know the thought of meatloaf might not sound appealing to a lot of people. Honestly, I never grew up on meatloaf and I didn’t have my first real taste of it until I was in high school at a friend’s house. To this day, I don’t think my parents even know what it is. This recipe is so simple, one pot meal to make and great for leftovers throughout the week. I think the thing that turns people off from traditional meatloaf is the use of ketchup and ground meat together and the end product just doesn’t look appealing. However, this recipe uses turkey instead of beef and nixes the ketchup completely in favor of some Mediterranean flavors. I love serving this with a side of roasted potatoes and brussels sprouts.

Turkey, Feta & Sun-Dried Tomato Meatloaf

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 lb lean ground turkey (I use a mix of 80/20)
1/3 C parsley chopped
1/4 C sun dried tomato, chopped (I get it packed in oil and to cut down on calories, I rinse the tomatoes off before using a paper towel to blot out the oil. Same great flavor)
1/2 C crumbled feta cheese
1 Tbs garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1/2 C Panko breadcrumbs
2 eggs
2 Tbs skim milk
Salt and pepper

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. Combine all ingredients together and mix well
3. Line the casserole dish with cooking spray and spread the mixture in it. Bake for 45 minutes until top becomes golden and cheese is melted

So easy and simple to make! Huge flavors from the sun dried tomato and feta and tons of lean good for you protein. I like to use the 80/20 turkey mix because it gives it enough fat to keep it moist, otherwise it is too dry if it it is too lean. I will definitely be making this a weeknight staple in our house!
