GREEK SPINACH & FETA MEATLOAF – A Greek-inspired meatloaf to spice up your meatloaf night! What? Doesn’t everyone have a designated meatloaf night? It’s totally a thing just like taco night. . . In my house it’s usually Wednesday night.

Every bite of this tender, juicy meatloaf is full of possibilities with feta cheese, garlicky spinach, roasted red peppers, onions and pine nuts. There’s a trio of herbs including thyme, parsley and oregano plus a big glug of Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, seasoned bread crumbs and eggs to hold it all together.

The baby spinach is quickly wilted in a frying pan before being added to the meat with a little garlic. Everyone will eat their veggies this way and like it because it’s impossible not to.

Just like chicken, meatloaf is one of my favorite go-to meals. I grew up on it and still love my Mom’s to this day. Everything I know about meatloaf I learned from her and always build my recipes around a common core that includes egg, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce and ketchup. From there I put my own spin on things.

Thanks Mom. For making a meatloaf lover out of me.
