Ingredients
  

Tzatziki Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt full-fat
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic finely minced
  • 1/2 medium cucumber cut in half longwise and thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp dill fresh, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Meatloaf

  • 2 lb ground turkey (dark meat if possible)
  • 8 oz spinach frozen, thawed and squeezed out
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried marjoram
  • 3/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup feta cheese crumbled

Instructions
 

  • For the sauce, mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and chill until serving.
  • For the meatloaf, line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 325F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, spinach, almond flour, eggs, onion, salt, marjoram, and pepper. Mix with your hands until very well combined.
  • Place half of the turkey mixture on the prepared baking sheet and shape into a flat rectangle, about 1 inch thick. Cover with 3/4 cup of the feta cheese. Place remaining turkey mixture overtop of feta and shape the whole thing into a rough loaf. Sprinkle with the remaining feta, pressing lightly to adhere.
  • Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 160F on an instant read thermometer.
  • Cut into slices and drizzle with tzatziki sauce, passing remaining sauce at the table.
