Recipe Swap

Serves: 4


  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • ½ sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 3-4 handfuls of baby spinach, chopped
  • ½ cup garlic ricotta salata cheese, cubed
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup seasoned panko crumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil



Heat butter and oil in large pan. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add the garlic and stir, cooking another minute. Season with salt and pepper. Add the spinach until it starts to wilt. Mix all together and remove from heat.

In a large bowl, add the ground turkey, one egg and ¼ cup panko crumbs. Mix thoroughly. When the pan mixture is a little cooler, combine with the turkey mixture.  Use your hands to mix it through, but do not over mix. Add 1/2 cup ricotta salata cheese. Mix.

Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet (or 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan) lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper or use a loaf pan.

Pour the mixture on to the pan and make a loaf. 

Put in preheated 350-degree oven. Cook uncovered for one hour. The turkey loaf should read at 165 degrees.
