found at

Nutrient note: Ground turkey breast is a good source of lean protein. It's also loaded with vitamin B12, which helps the body use fats and carbohydrates, is vital to cell development—especially red blood cells—and helps the nervous system function properly.

1 1/2 pounds ground turkey breast
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed well to remove any 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-skim mozzarella cheese (1 cup)
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Preheat oven to 375° 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 mixture into an 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.
