Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Spinach Filled Turkey Meat Loaf

Make sure that the frozen spinach is well drained.  The fennel seed adds a nice flavor to the turkey, leaving it out is not recommended as it would be a bit bland.

  1 1/2 Lb ground turkey                                                            1/2 Tsp Basil
  1/2 Cup Panko                                                                         1/2 Tsp fennel seed
  2 Large Eggs, Beaten                                                               10 Oz Frozen Chopped Spinach
  2 Tbl grated Parmesan cheese                                                  3/4 Cup shredded low-fat
  1/2 Tbl Oregano                                                                       -mozzarella cheese

Heat the oven to 350F.  Spray an 8-inch loaf pan with the cooking spray.

Thoroughly mix the turkey, bread crumbs, eggs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, basil and fennel seed in a large bowl.  Press half the turkey mixture into the pan.  Press a 1-inch indentation down the center of the turkey mixture.

Thaw and thoroughly drain the spinach.  Mix with the mozzarella cheese in a medium bowl.  Spoon the spinach mixture into the indentation, mounding in the center.  Press the remaining turkey mixture over the filling, pressing the edges to seal.  Bake for 60 minutes.  Bake for 15 minutes or until the meat loaf is cooked through.  Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
