One can never buy just one pound of ground turkey at Costco, it usually comes in bundles of four one pound packages.  I tend to freeze the individual packages for future meals.   One recent recipe that I made was turkey loaf that included spinach, chopped onion and garlic.  It was delicious.  You can serve the loaf with rice or mashed potatoes.  I also froze several portions which I can use for lunches.

Turkey mixture spooned into baking dish

Lemon slices placed over the unbaked loaf.

An inside look at a slice of turkey loaf.


1 pound lean ground turkey
1 pkg of frozen spinach, thawed or 2 big handfuls of fresh spinach, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 egg
1 slice of bread, slightly toasted, cubed
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp of grated lemon rind
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of nutmeg
thin slices of lemon


Squeeze excess water from thawed spinach if using a frozen package.  In a medium size bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the lemon slices.

Into a baking dish (6 to 8 cup size), transfer the turkey mixture.  Smooth out the top.  Arrange the lemon slices on top.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 to 50 minutes.  The meat loaf should be thoroughly cooked.  Serves 4 to 5.
