Spinach, whole-wheat bread crumbs, and lean turkey boost the fiber and reduce the fat in this hearty classic. Buttermilk in the potatoes lowers the saturated fat.

How to Make It

Heat oven to 400° F. In a bowl, combine the turkey, onion, spinach, parsley, bread crumbs, mustard, egg white, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

Transfer the mixture to a baking sheet and form it into a 10-inch loaf. Spread with the ketchup. Bake until cooked through, 45 to 50 minutes.

Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a large pot of cold water. Simmer until tender, 15 to 18 minutes. Drain the potatoes and mash in the pot with the buttermilk, oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Serve the meat loaf with the marinara sauce (if using) and potatoes.

Great turkey loaf. Everyone loved it! It seemed like a lot of greens but they cooked down so tiny nobody knew they were there. Very moist.

I thought this was very moist and very tasty. I loved the spinach in it (it definitely helped with the moisture and flavor)! I will make this again!

I found this recipe to be fantastic and made me like meatloaf for the first time. I added 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, and added 2 slices of bacon, chopped and 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese. I will absolutely make this dish again. Even my 14 year old niece loved it!

This recipe was terrible! The spinach did not go well in the meatloaf and we threw the rest away. The olive oil also tasted weird in the potatoes. I might make them again, but with a tablespoon of butter instead of the oil.
