Years ago I started using ground turkey in place of ground beef. A good meatloaf recipe was missing from my life, until I found this one. I've made it a few times now and it is always delicious. Very flavorful. Even people who dislike spinach have enjoyed this meatloaf. I've found my healthier meatloaf replacement!
