Turkey Meatloaf Feta and Dill Turkey Meatloaf

 

 

Sometimes it is just nice to throw together a delicious and easy meal. Well, this Greek inspired American classic is a wonderful take on the traditional meatloaf. Made with ground turkey you can serve something lighter yet still flavor packed with the addition of feta cheese and dill weed. It pairs perfect with potatoes and/or a Greek salad!

Directions: 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium. Add onion, garlic, and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft, 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, combine vegetables, turkey, egg, bread crumbs and oats, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Using your hands, mix until combined. Mix in feta and dill. Transfer to a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and form into a 4-by-10-inch loaf. Bake until cooked through, 45 to 55 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through and draining any fat buildup. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing with sharp bread knife for smooth, even pieces.
Enjoy and serve with your favorite sides. Next time, I plan to serve with my favorite Greek-Lemon Oven Potatoes!!!

Try this recipe next time you have a hankering for something Greek or just as a stand in for your typical meatloaf recipe, I don’t think you will be disappointed one bit!

    I just finished making this dish and I must stay it is one of the best meatloaves I’ve ever made in my life. Kudos to you, and to allowing me to make it in a gluten-free version as well (since I’m another one of those pesky Celiacs). You are amazing!
