1 Yellow Onion, diced
3 Green Onions, diced
3 cloves Garlic, diced
1 - 16 oz. package frozen Chopped Spinach, cooked and drained thoroughly
1 1/4 pounds Ground Turkey, the average weight of 1 package
1/4 cup Italian Style Dry Bread Crumbs (or Oatmeal soaked in the milk for 1 minute)
1/4 cup Milk
1 Egg, beaten
1 teaspoon Oregano
1/2 cup Tomato Basil Feta Cheese, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
Butter/Oil for sauteing

Cook and drain spinach thoroughly. Squeezing out any excess water with a clean kitchen towel. Set aside. Saute onions till golden, Add garlic and drained spinach cook 1 minute. Mix to combine. Set aside to cool.


Soak breadcrumbs or oatmeal in milk for 1 minute. Beat egg. Add egg, cheese and soaked breadcrumbs to ground turkey. Add cooled veggies and seasonings. Mix till combined.


Divide into 8 equal mounds. Form into mini meatloaves or if you have this super groovy pan like me use it. Bake for 45 minutes in a 350 oven. These freeze well either cooked or uncooked.

I served them with sauteed zucchini sprinkled with a dash of Greek Seasoning.

I love these mini meatloaves. Not only are they are the perfect size for us weight loss surgery peeps (great portion control) they are just so flippin' cute.
