How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 350°F.  Spray an 8-inch loaf pan with vegetable cooking spray.

Step 2

Thoroughly mix the turkey, 1/4 cup sauce, bread crumbs, onion, eggs, Parmesan cheese and fennel seed in a large bowl.

Step 3

Press half the turkey mixture into the pan.  Press a 1-inch indentation down the center of the turkey mixture.

Step 4

Stir the spinach and mozzarella cheese in a medium bowl.  Spoon the spinach mixture into the indentation, mounding in the center.  Press the remaining turkey mixture over the filling, pressing the edges to seal.

Step 5

Bake for 45 minutes. Spoon the remaining sauce over the meatloaf.

Step 6

Bake for 15 minutes or until the meatloaf is cooked through.  Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

Recipe Tips

  • Easy Substitution: If you don't have cooking spray, try parchment paper. The quickest way to line an 8-inch loaf pan is to cut 1 (5-inch) sheet of parchment and 1 (8-inch) sheet of parchment. Place these sheets into the pan, criss-crossing at the center. Trim any excess parchment that extends above the edge of the pan.

    Very good meatloaf

    I added a few more seasoning to the dish, but all in all it is a good dish.

    Florentine Turkey Meatloaf

    This was really easy and tasted great! It took longer than the 1 hour it said. It actually took 1 hour 20 minutes in my oven and I bumped it up 5 degrees to spead things up a bit. It could easily be made without the spinach if you don't care for that veggie!

    Florentine Turkey Meatloaf

    This dish is tasty! Making it again tonight. I used fresh spinach sautéed it, once it cooled, I wrapped it in a paper towel to get moisture out then added mozzarella cheese. It's a favorite.
