Don't want to turn on oven? Shape into 4 ovals & bake in your electric skillet. You can wrap in heavy foil & bake on the grill.

I loved this recipe- been putting boiled eggs in center of my meatloaf- but I have high cholesteral - so the spinach is much healthier - thanks for the idea!

This recipe was delicious! I don't even like meatloaf and I loved it. The meat was moist and not heavy tasting, (I played with the meat seasoning a little and added basil, oregano and garlic salt.) The filling reminded me of a stuffed spinach and mushroom pizza. Even my kids liked it!

I thought this recipe was delicious! I just made it tonight and everyone loved it. It needs to be cooked longer than the directions (closer to 45 minutes). Other than that, it was right on. I will definitely make this again.
