Miniature meatloaf using spinach and feta for new flavors to a classic dish

I know, shock of all shocks. I created another meatloaf recipe! If you have been around here much, you may have noticed a meatloaf recipe or two :)

It was only a matter of time for another one really. I just can’t help myself! There is something about having meatloaf and green beans at home with my husband that tells me “it’s a great day.” And why would I deprive myself of a good day?? I mean, come on.

Just a handful of other meatloaf recipes: French Onion Soup Meatloaf. South of the Border Meatloaf. Teriyaki Meatloaf. Mini Zucchini Meatloaf. Cajun Style Meatloaf…the list goes on. Just search “meatloaf” in the top right and corner and you’ll be busy for hours.

Meatloaf is a great meal for weight loss surgery patients. If you’ve had Gastric Sleeve, Bypass or Band surgery, you might agree. I don’t use any starch – rather I substitute grated parmesan cheese instead of crackers or breadcrumbs. Pair it with a veggie and enjoy!
