Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 large celery stalks, diced small
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 pound ground white-meat turkey
  • 1 pound ground dark-meat turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 slices white sandwich bread, cut into small pieces
  • 4 ounces feta, crumbled (1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium. Add onion, garlic, and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft, 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. In a large bowl, combine vegetables, turkey, egg, bread, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Using your hands, mix until combined. Mix in feta and dill. Transfer to a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and form into a 4-by-10-inch loaf. Bake until cooked through, 45 to 55 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.

Cook's Note

To store, cover and refrigerate, up to 3 days. You'll need 1/3 the meatloaf for Spinach-and-Turkey Hand Pies.

    Fantastic recipe! Tasted so much like souvlaki, but healthier and cheaper. I added 1 teaspoon of crushed red chili flake for a little spice. Will definitely make this one again.

    Followed the recipe exactly except used queso fresco instead of feta because I had it on hand. Loved this.

    I added raw veggies to meat mixture (didn't read the "sauté" instruction), subbed panko for bread, added fresh oregano from my garden and topped with a little fresh tomato sauce before baking. Absolutely delish.

    My family loves this meatloaf! Hearty and delicious! (I usually leave out the celery)
