Makes 6 servings
1.25 lbs (20 oz) lean ground turkey
6 oz white button mushrooms, chopped
6 oz frozen spinach, rinsed with hot water until thawed and then blotted with paper towels to get rid of excess water
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1. In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients. Stir until all ingredients are well-incorporated.
2. In a bread pan that fits inside your slow large slow cooker, spoon meat mixture and pat to form a loaf.
3. Place a small rack in the bottom of your slow cooker (if you don’t have a rack, ball up pieces of foil). Place pan on top of rack. Cover slow cooker and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours.
4. Remove pan and drain off any liquid that has formed on top. Place pan in the oven and broil for about 5 minutes. Slice and serve.
I loved the idea of adding veggies into a meatloaf. This one turned out beautifully. My husband and kids gobbled it until it was all gone. I put ketchup on my kids plate with the meatloaf and they loved it…no complaints about the spinach or mushrooms either. They were small enough that they couldn’t tell they were in there. Putting it under the broiler for a few minutes browned it up nicely as well. I would definitely make this again. 4 stars.
