Mediterranean Turkey Meatloaf

Mediterranean Turkey Meatloaf

This meatloaf is inspired by one I used to make by Giada.  It’s lighter and much more flavorful than traditional meatloaf (although I love that too).  No matter the flavors in a meatloaf, it somehow always feels like comfort food.  I like to serve this meatloaf with a combination of roasted baby red potatoes and broccoli or green beans.  You can roast them together while the meatloaf rests.
