2 pounds ground turkey
2 slices of soft fresh bread crumbled
2 egg yolks
4 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage leaves
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
6 ounces whole-milk mozzarella cheese cut into 1 inch cubes
1 jar of your favorite marinara or see recipe for easy Homemade Marinara
1 bag baby leaf spinach
Salt and Pepper to taste
Pre-Heat Oven to 350°
Put the turkey in a bowl. Add the bread crumbs, egg yolks, onion, sage, Worchester, and lemon zest and mix them in by hand very gently. Do not over mix the turkey mixture; the less you handle it the lighter it is.
Add the cubed mozzarella, salt and pepper and again, with your hand, gently combine it into the mixture.
Form a “loaf” with the turkey mixture on a baking sheet or a 13 x 9” cake pan. If using the cake pan do not spread it out to fit the pan, again form a “loaf” with it.
Bake for 45 minutes then remove the pan from the oven and put the spinach around the turkey loaf and spoon some of the marinara sauce over the loaf and spinach. Place it back in the oven for another 15 minutes or until internal temperature is 165°. Let rest 7 minutes before slicing.
