Turkey & Sausage Meatloaf with Spinach
I like ground turkey, but I have struggled with the texture of meatloaf made with ground turkey before because it is so crumbly and doesn't hold its shape.. Here's an excellent solution with adding Italian sausage that gives it a denser texture. I've made this with, and without, the breadcrumbs, so if you are trying to go gluten free, or just don't have breadcrumbs, go ahead and try it without.
We've loved this for dinner a couple of times recently, and the leftovers are excellent for sandwiches too.
20 oz ground turkey (low fat)
8 oz spicy Italian sausage
2/3 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 tsp garlic
1/2 cup shallots, or onions, chopped
2 cups spinach, chopped
Salt & Pepper
Pre-chop the spinach, onions and garlic.
Call me lazy, but when it comes to half a pound of Italian sausage, I have an excellent easy solution.
Add the turkey and sausage to the food processor with the egg, crumbs and seasoning. Mix well and add it to a loaf pan, and smooth the top. Bake for about 1 hour at 350 F degrees.
