Recipe (Mediterranean Meatloaf)

Mediterranean Meatloaf


1/4 cup diced canned tomato (fire roasted is particularly good)
1 (10 ounce) package frozen, chopped spinach thawed and drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup crumbled fat-free feta cheese
1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
1/2 cup uncooked quick oatmeal or cooked brown rice or cooked cous cous
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sage
1 egg


Preheat oven to 375. Mix all ingredients together in large bowl - I find it generally helps to mix ground meats by hand, which is cold and somewhat uncomfortable, but very effective! (Just remember to wash your hands before and after!)

Shape into a loaf and drop in casserole dish. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until center is set (I usually have to cut my meatloaf open at least once, mutter, and put it back in the oven for 15 minutes... never can quite figure that part out.)

(I'd thank someone for this recipe, but honestly, I can't remember where I got it from... Anyway, again, it's all Core, and 4 points for two slices)
