This attractive ground turkey loaf from Louise Tomb of Harrison Valley, Pennsylvania is something special, but you won't have to fuss a lot. The tasty entree features a swirl of spinach filling that's flavored with mushrooms, celery and green onions.


  • 3/4 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, drained and squeezed dry

  • 4 slices day-old whole wheat bread, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 4 teaspoons herb and garlic onion soup mix
