Mediterranean Meatloaf - Joy Bauer

You may feel like Joy Bauer is living in your home.  I certainly do and she would make a great guest and we would be eating healthier and more delicious meals.  I am doing second best and simply cooking her recipes and we are a happier family.

My husband loves meatloaf and I tolerate it.  When I eat it, I like it but I wouldn't just make it if hubby didn't consider it a favorite. 

I saw a photo of this Mediterranean Meatloaf in Joy's book, Slim and Scrumptious.  The picture showed this turkey mixture loaded with veggies and it was pretty with all the colors shining out.   I made it that night. 

Mediterranean Meatloaf  (adapted from Joy Bauer)

1 pound lean ground turkey 

1 cup packed chopped spinach

cup diced roasted bell peppers (in a jar)  I must include these more  often.

½ cup shredded zucchini

¼ cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, diced (another winning addition)

¼ cup diced celery

2 shallots, finely diced

2 tablespoons tomato paste

2 teaspoons gluten-free Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon dried thyme

salt and pepper to taste

1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 egg beater (the recipe called for 2 egg whites.  Egg Beaters are made up of almost all whites so I decided to use them instead.)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place all ingredients into a large bowl. 

Mix together thoroughly so the veggies spread out throughout the meatloaf.

Put into a large meatloaf pan or shape and put on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake for 60 minutes.

Eat and enjoy
