Sun Dried Tomato and Feta Turkey Meatloaf

meatloaf

First day back on track was a success! I know, I know, another feta dish. This is the last one for a bit I promise. I have finally made a dent in my Costco container of feta, so I can start cooking with other things.

This yummy meal is prepped and in the oven in about 10 minutes! No more dry, boring meatloaf. The secret to a moist, delicious turkey meatloaf is soaking the bread in a little bit of almond milk or regular milk instead of using dry bread crumbs.

Just tear your bread up in to little pieces and put in a bowl, add the milk, mix it around a little bit with your fingers and let sit while you prep everything else. Sounds weird, I know, just trust me.

I served it with some balsamic roasted butternut squash but it would be great with a salad, mashed potatoes or any veggie on the side. Leftovers are even better for lunch the next day!
