1 cup coarsely chopped mushrooms
1 small onion, chopped
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese - divided use
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound lean ground turkey
3/4 cup quick oats
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Cooking Directions:

  3. In large bowl, combine turkey, oats, milk, egg white, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper; mixing lightly but thoroughly. Spoon 2/3 of turkey mixture lengthwise down center of 11 x 7-inch glass baking dish. Form a deep indentation down middle of turkey; fill indentation with reserved spinach mixture. Top with remaining turkey, forming a loaf. Seal edges to completely enclose spinach filling.
