I made this with a few changes. Used 85% turkey and no milk cheese or oats in the loaf part. Used 1/2 cup breadcrumbs instead. Filling made with mushrooms onion & spinach. Added cheese as its own layer on top of the spinach. Very good! Read More

I was excited to try this recipe. I made it exactly as described except I used a whole egg not just the egg white and fresh spinach rather than frozen. I am disappointed to report that it was very bland and therefore my rating of only 3 stars. Next time I'll need to add considerable seasoning to the meat and/or spinach filling. Read More

I hate spinach so I used a dressing with broccoli florets only. Also I made individual sized loafs. Will have several meals from this. Read More

This was absolutely delicious. Made exactly as written except that I added some chopped fresh tomatoes to the spinach mix. A nice addition. Served it with mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce. My husband loved it. The gravy was such a nice compliment to the turkey loaf that I was thinking that next time I might try using poultry seasoning instead of Italian and adding gravy on top instead of the cheese, which really did not add much flavor. An all around great recipe. Read More

I made it using 1 whole egg whole milk and I used sharp cheddar instead of mozzarella (just bc this is all what I had in the house) I also added about 1/2 tsp of ground fennel. It was absolutely delicious! An easy recipe and 5 stars. Read More

I made this as written except for using fresh spinach which is what I had on hand. I sautéed the mushrooms and onions then added the spinach to the skillet and sautéed just until it was wilted. The meat loaf was pretty good but a bit bland; next time I would add minced garlic and maybe some Worcestershire to the turkey. This is a healthy alternative to my usual (much-loved by my family) beef-based meat loaf. I'll make it again but will try to jazz it up a little. Read More
