We made this in the fall, and then I made this Greek Meatloaf again on Tuesday night at like 10pm. I had the ingredients for this Greek Meatloaf in the fridge, but otherwise, almost nothing to eat. Though I did stuff down a few leftover Sesame Chicken Potstickers – love those things. 🙂
Meatloaf is not what I felt like cooking that late at night, but it really comes together in about 10 minutes anyway, and then it only needs to bake for about 30 minutes, so it’s actually a pretty fast meal. I had nothing to pack for lunches for the week, so I pulled it together.
Now it’s Thursday night, and it’s gone. My S.O. is out of town this week for a conference, so I ate this entire meatloaf by myself in the last two-ish days. I pretty much ate it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between. It’s a monster meatloaf, so it’s quite a feat that I ate it by myself.
I make it sound like it happened in one sitting!
Anyway, this Greek Meatloaf comes together in minutes. Throw it all in a bowl, stir, and then pile it onto a baking sheet. Super easy. You’ll get, like, 10 meals out of it, so it’s great for making on the weekend, and eating it all week (or for every meal and snack for two straight days).
I love the mint. It’s subtle, but it’s there, just enough to know it’s there. And the Feta cheese adds nice saltiness and creaminess to the meatloaf. They both go a long way toward sprucing up a basic turkey meatloaf. Onion, garlic… those things never hurt either.
Let’s talk tzatziki sauce. There is scarcely a condiment that I love more. Right?? Isn’t it the best? The lemon, the cucumber, garlic, and dill. I’m always telling you guys how dill is my favorite herb, and it makes a tzatziki sauce, in my opinion.
So much goodness in one meatloaf, and it’s a cinch. It’s quite healthy, loaded with protein, and feeds a crowd. It’s a good recipe to have in your dinner repertoire!
