Skinny Turkey-Spinach Meat Loaf @Cooking_Light

I found this recipe in my Cooking Light cookbook and it’s a winner both for the first night and also a week later after taking it out of the freezer.  It makes a lot, so hopefully you’re hungry.  We had it 2 weeks ago for 2 nights and then put the rest in the freezer and microwaved it tonight (after thawing in the frig overnight).  It was just as good as the first night.  Just like any other meatloaf, ketchup is the perfect condiment.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 slice)


  • Cooking spray
  • 1  cup  finely chopped onion
  • 3  garlic cloves, minced
  • 1  cup  dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/2  cup  fat-free milk
  • 1  tablespoon  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 4  large egg whites
  • 1 1/2  pounds  ground turkey breast
  • 1/2  pound  ground beef, extralean
  • 2  (10-ounce) packages frozen leaf spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
  • 1/2  cup  ketchup


Preheat oven to 350°.

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion, and sauté 4 minutes. Add garlic, and sauté 30 seconds. Remove from heat. Combine onion mixture, breadcrumbs, and the next 8 ingredients (breadcrumbs through spinach), stirring well.

Shape meat mixture into a 12 x 5-inch loaf on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Brush ketchup over the top of the loaf. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160°; let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
