Serves 6
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour

1 1/2 pounds ground turkey breast
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to remove excess water
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 ounces grated part-slim mozzarella cheese (1 cup)
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl combine turkey, spinach, onion, bread, crumbs, parsley, oregano, egg whites, salt and pepper. Mix well with a wooden spoon (or your clean hands).

Press half of the mixture into and 8-inch loaf pan. Top bottom half with grated mozzarella cheese. Press remaining turkey mixture over top and flatten to make an even layer. Whisk together ketchup and mustard and spread mixture over prepared meatloaf.

Bake 1 hour, until top is golden and loaf has pulled slightly away from sides of pan. Let stand 10 minutes, then slice into 6 equal pieces and serve.
