I love Greek food and flavors and I love meatloaf so I thought this recipe was just perfect for me.  And it was!  You could make this with either organic healthy (blah blah blah) ground beef or ground turkey.  This recipe could also be cooked either in your crockpot or in the oven, depending on whether you a) remember to throw it in the crockpot that morning or b) you get home and see the recipe on the counter and yell - 'dang it!' and throw it together and into the oven right quick.  If you have time, put this all together the night before and let the flavors meld. 

I scrambled the leftovers into my eggs the next morning and topped it with Greek yogurt 'cause I'm just awesome that way....but enough about me - on to the recipe!  I served this with a side of Quinoa Cauliflower Mash - that recipe posts tomorrow.

My secret to a good meatloaf is to combine all the other ingredients first and then mix them into the meat; you get better distribution that way.

makes 6-8 servings (but remember, a 3 oz piece is a P10 serving)

olive oil
3 eggs
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon minced garlic
6 oz feta cheese, crumbled
10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 cup red onion (can sub regular onion), chopped
2 lbs ground beef or ground turkey
  In a large mixing bowl, stir together the eggs, garlic and oregano, then add in the onion and cheese and spinach, mix well.


Put the meat into the mixing bowl and squish squish squish away, making sure that all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated into the meat, make sure and flip and split and separate and continue squishing until you have a great mixture.

Crockpot instructions:  Coat the crockpot with olive oil, plop the mixture in and shape into a low flat even loaf (to cook evenly).  Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours.  Uncover and let sit for about 5 minutes before serving.

Oven instructions:  Put meatloaf into a pan and shape evenly to ensure it cooks evenly.  Bake at 350 for 90 minutes.
