Greek Inspired Turkey Meatloaf

Every Tuesday night my daughter has Rugby practice which takes a lot out of her and she comes home famished. As she comes in the door all I hear is “I’m home, whats for dinner?”. When I told her meatloaf I can tell you that excitement didn’t ooze from her…until I said it has cheese. Then she smiled and went to put her gear away.

This meatloaf is a hearty protein packed meal very different from the way your granma used to make it. Packed with iron rich spinach, full flavoured feta and topped with a wonderful garlicky tzatziki (get the recipe HERE) it has turned into a gyro inspired dish. I also made my own delicious gyro seasoning HERE.

To lower the carbs I used coconut flour or almond meal instead of bread crumbs which also conveniently makes the meatloaf gluten free.

This meatloaf is 5.9g net carbs, super high in protein with a whopping 33.3g and 11 Weight Watchers points.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
