Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf

This is one of my favorite meals to make with ground turkey. But you can use ground beef instead. For the breadcrumbs I crushed wheat chex because it was all I could find in the house.

Turkey Spinach Stuffed Meatloaf

1.3 lbs Ground Turkey (or Beef)
1 Large Egg Beaten
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs
1/2 cup Chopped Onion
2 Tbs Yellow Mustard
2 tsp Italian Seasoning, dried
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Garlic powder

10oz Frozen Shredded Spinach, Thawed and drained
1/2 cup Fat free ricotta cheese
1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded (may be low fat cheese)

1/4 cup Tomato Salsa

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with nonfat cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, mix together ground turkey, egg, bread crumbs, and onion. Add mustard, italian seasoning, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder and mix well.

3. Place half the meat mixture in prepared pan. Make a shallow well down the length of the meat.

5. Cover with remaining meat mixture; pinch sides of meat together to seal well.
6. Cook at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. If liquid from vegetables seeps out of stuffing, that`s OK, just drain it off. Let rest for 10 minutes, top with salsa (it covers up the odd colour of the cooked ground turkey), slice and serve.
